Apparently Spanish lottery adverts are as eagerly awaited as the John Lewis Christmas campaigns in the UK. Perhaps this is not surprising as this year's full-length 'anuncio de la lotería' was directed by one of Spain's most famous film directors, Alejandro Amenábar, and runs for nearly 20 minutes! 

We've just published a worksheet to accompany the two shorter versions of the adverts (3 mins, 30 secs), which would work well as a December lesson for able key stage 4 or key stage 5 students. It comes with comprehension activities, answers and suggested extension tasks.

We published a similar resource last year, so you could introduce both adverts and invite students to compare them or explain which is their favourite.
