Spanish Vocabulary list: Train travel

Module by: Lorena Gauthereau-Bryson. E-mail the author

Summary: This vocabulary list has been put together from the modules: "Spanish reading passage: Informe para el viajero de ferrocarril" and "Spanish reading passage: Previos de pasaje por ferrocarril." It is intended for AP Spanish language and college-level Spanish language students.

This vocabulary list can be combined with lesson plan modules that use historic train price lists and traveler information, "Spanish reading passage: Informe para el viajero de ferrocarril" and "Spanish reading passage: Precios de pasaje por ferrocarril". It can also be combined with excerpts of your own choosing from De México a Chicago y Nueva York: guía para el viajero en la que se describen las principales ciudades y ferrocarriles.
