I use an intercambio. I watch a 2-4 minute in Spanish prior to meeting. He does the same but in English. We both watch each others video.
Then we discuss the videos. This works really well.
For example. I watched this, studied it, got the transcript from youtube, looked up words, etc. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XgJfa6QZPCU
#1 The fantastic thing about it--watching a video that you are interested in. I enjoy the RS content, but I am more interested in bees, surfing, permaculture, Gospel of Mark, treating a splinter, etc.
This personal interest naturally motivates me to prepare for the next session. I get to study Spanish, my interests, share my interests with another listener, practice my Spanish. Lots of wins there!
#2 It keeps the session focussed on a task.
#3 Even if I find his video uninteresting at first, it usually turns out fine.
#4 Feel brave, go beyond a 'safe' topic.
#5 After you have retold the info, you can editorialize. You can step up through Bloom's Taxonomy as your own ability allows.
