What have Adam Irigoyen, Jake T, Austin, Jasmine Villegas and Victoria Justice in common? Answer: They are all young famous Hollywood celebrities and they all have Latin American roots. From Cuba over to Argentina and from Mexico to Puerto Rico, they all bring some Hispanic culture to Tinsel Town, and they all feature in Mary Glasgow’s ¿Qué Tal? magazine too.

Sue’s Year 7s have been working with the article ¡Uau! ¿Son Latinos?. As groups, they had to work out the meaning of the different paragraphs – as you can see and hear in the video.

Our Teacher’s Notes writer suggests that this article is a great springboard for beginners to learn to write a brief biography that introduces a person to a group.
