Destinos ~ spanish telenovela

Has anyone else watched Destinos for Spanish? And typically what level do you watch it in? I've heard usually level 2...but we watched it in level 4, though we thought it was very very stupid and a lot of the grammar/vocab was very basic...

And what kinds of related projects did you do? We did an alternative ending/lost episode kind of thing for our final.

Do you guys like it? We all hate it, but secretly love laughing at Raquel/Arturo/Luis

    DESTINOS!!! Raquel had the potential to be so hot...arturo was a tool

    we didnt do much, we just answered those question sheets along with the film...our teacher as fond of beavis and butthead, so needless to say, he no longer teachers at my HS.

    Great Year tho, i loved it!

    Umm....I didn't like it that much. Maybe it was because my school is messed up about using the telenovela as a teaching tool. We watch random episodes throughout Spanish 3 to Spanish 4. We'd skip 2-3 episodes between each time we watch it. I have a very vague idea of the plotline. I never paid attention because we only had to fill out worksheets that our teacher would go over at the end of the episode.

    At least it wasn't as bad a La Catrina, a bad, very dramatic telenovela that we watched in Spanish 2.

    I watched it!!! But I never got to the end of it, I think we only got to episode 10, where she learned that Don Fernando had a son named, Angel, and Rosario and Angel lived in Argentina, where she remarried another man after the Spanish Civil War.

    We didn't do any projects; we just filled in the blanks on a worksheet that was related to the show. We watched it in level 3, and I heard that we are going to watch the rest of it in level 4.

    I liked it, because it was somewhat interesting and it got us out of doing spanish grammer. There were times when I was laughing at them,too, because some of the acting was ridiculous, overall it's a good show for spanish beginners or if someone wants to self-study spanish from scratch.

    My schools starts it in Spanish 1 and you finish in level 2. I was placed ion accelerated Spanish 2 when I switched schools and we had to write summaries of the episodes.

    I didn't really like it because I only watched the last 6 or 7 episodes, so I didn't really get the story.
