Right, maybe we can use these pics, I often did with my english lessons, and they should work here, too. Let's see.

Fairly simple: say (in Spanish) whatever comes to your mind as you look at the pics. Maybe just a word, enough

There you go

If you're learning English, do that in English.
Good exercise to improve performance.

The words that came to mind for me: mentira - asalto - cuidado - jugar - choque. Not ver original I guess.

It's funny we said opposites for the first one. My thinking was "yea, it's the truth that they say one thing and you get another."

Opposites are close in our mind. Funny that verdad-mentira pair. It's like the glass, half-full or half empty

Asalto and comico for the second, coool
Better than asalto, atraco, leaves the irony out
Un asalto is something bigger, maybe military. Comico is fine, also jocoso.

Both agree on the bear, right? We say cuidado half a second before the bear slips

Que and jugar....I don't get it...I would just say ¡Tonto!

Ironia y choque...Un choque de trenes, los coches tienen golpes.

Good...next stage. Imagine you are describing the pic to a person who can't see it. Try to do that in no more than 3 sentences...Choose your favourite pic, don't need to do them all

1.- A bit too strong for the context, but possible.
2.- Good! You got the irony
3.- Spanglish. The expression is 'Se me paso de la mente...' Good try
4.- lol. Un cazacabezas en spanish is an indian, one of those who would shrink heads (jíbaros)
5.-Is cool

Yep, I knew 3 was Spanglish. I was mixing the English 'slipped my mind' with the Spanish saying so that I could play on the word slipped!
