Food and Nationalities Game in Spanish

Guess the Nationalities in Spanish!


In this video, we are going to be talking about different dishes from around the world in a fun game to practice nationalities in Spanish.

When we are talking about nationalities in Spanish it is important to remember that they can be both masculine and feminine. This is going to be the same when you are talking about dishes and food from the country.

Use the questions ¿De dónde es? to find out the nationality or where the dish or food is from.  Then to respond to the question you have two options.

  • You can say:
    es de + país (country) or…
  • es + nacionalidad (nationality).

For the game, Maria will give us the name of the dish and then the ingredients to make it. Then you and Cody will have to figure out what country it is from. You can respond with one of the two options of es de país or es nacionalidad.  Make sure to pay attention to if the word is going to be masculine or feminine.

Where you able to do better than Cody?

Ready for some more practice!  Maria has a few more dishes that you can guess the nacionalidad of.  It will be the same as in the video above but it will only be audio.  Are you ready to start?  Press the play button below to get started.
