Guided Listening Practice

I want to give my students exposure to a wide variety of native Spanish speakers, especially since I am not a native speaker.  Yesterday on one of the forums I follow, someone mentioned the video me gusta - mis pasatiemposMy Spanish 2 class started last week and GUSTAR is one of the "Super 7" words that I am reviewing with them, so the timing was excellent.

The man in the video, Agustín, talks about what he likes and doesn't like. In order to guide the students' listening, I made a sheet (see below) that contained the activities and items that he liked/disliked and added a few additional answers that he doesn't mention.   In this way, the students were intently listening for specific information, helping them to be successful in this task.
