Six short biographies for novice high and beyond

Novice (Levels 1-2), Intermediate (Levels 2-4)
13 Pages

This product contains the biographies of six famous soccer players. The biographies are written for students with a novice high level of proficiency; largely in the past tense.

Each of the biographies discuss how these players impacted the beautiful game, and how some of them have overcome hardship in order to become soccer stars. Second year Spanish students will be able to understand these readings with ease by the spring semester, if not before. These SHORT biographies could also be a great warm up activity for third year students or, if laminated, could be an addition to your FVR library.


  • Edson Arantes Do Nascimento "Pelé"
  • Lionel "Leo" Messi
  • Cristiano Ronaldo
  • Javier "Chicharito" Hernández
  • Juan Guillermo Cuadrado Bello
  • Amy Joy Rodríguez

Each short biography is written on a one-page worksheet with a very brief comprehension activity at the bottom. Answer keys are included.

  • This was a great activity to do during the World Cup! Had a great time with it in my Spanish 2 class.

  • The articles are easily comprehensible for my students and compelling because of the sports topic. I don't know anything about fútbol so it was nice to be able to incorporate something I know so many students love, but that I couldn't teach them about.

  • This was a great distance learning activity for my students to use. We watched parts of the movie GOAL after completing this!
