This Spanish Formal vs Informal PowerPoint teaches beginning Spanish students the uses and differences between the Spanish Tú and Usted. It uses the help of Anna and Elsa from the movie "Frozen". Anna represents formal while Elsa represents informal. The following phrases are used when explaining the differences: ¿Cómo te llamas?; ¿Cómo se llama?; ¿Cómo estás?; ¿Cómo está?; Estoy...; Me llamo...;
At the end there is a 50 question assessment which the teacher can have the students answer individually, in partners, on whiteboards, or whatever method is preferred. Contains a total of 42 slides!

This PowerPoint uses the Inductive Method of teaching. This is where students are given several different examples of the Spanish Formal vs Informal using phrases and images. Students then determine what the differences are and create their own rules. This engages the student more in the presentation and helps them remember the material better since they are taking part in the learning themselves.
