After spending endless hours compiling a collection of free to use and share photos I’ve created this free presentation in order to help students with the Spanish speaking exam.
This is a card game I created for my shyest Y11. I simply used one card once a week and it worked miracles. Most of them feared having that blank page feeling and with these cards they were able to focus on a target (which they found quite helpful) and of course, they also love a bit of competition.
I was lucky enough to find a chronicle I can relate to most of the topics covered in the AQA A2 exam. It took me some time until I found the perfect story for my students’ revision time.
It is some info about a place called Auroville (in India) and the idea of a place with no official religion, currency and a very particular form of government seems fascinating to me and fortunately my students liked it too so feel free to have a look and use it in your lessons if you find it useful.
A couple of weeks ago, while participating in a languages chat (#charlaele1) on Twitter I saw this tweet:
It was an answer to the question: What advantages does project-based learning (PBL) offer when teaching Spanish as a second language?
I instantly fell in love with her project. Unfortunately, way too often teachers can hear from their students the typical phrase: “–So… what is the point of doing this?“. That’s why PBL is the perfect cure for that kind of statements but this project, in particular, has an outstanding purpose. Sending “get well soon” messages to patients in hospitals.
A simple page with lots of interesting facts about the film that will help the students to understand it a bit better.
A printable match up activity on the topic of the holiday. You can use this idea to make more documents on different topics. My students love a bit of a challenge and this is one of their favourites. Simple but it works!
6 cards to practice: “¿Qué hay en la foto?” for the GCSE speaking exam.
Topics included: School and college, Lifestyle choices and impact, Friendships and relationships, Holiday preferences and experiences, Home and local issues, Personal interests.
A very simple activity for the students to practice their speaking about what can one do in a city/village. There are 4 text messages from different types of visitors with different preferences and the students have to come up with a suitable plan for them.
