Flamenco - A Cross-Cultural Art Form: Lesson Plan & Film

Flamenco is an art form rooted in the Spanish culture for generations. Today, flamenco is popular all over the world and is taught in many countries. Set in Seville, Spain, this short film follows a day in the life of flamenco guitarist Juan Ramírez. Through his eyes, we experience Soleá—the mother of flamenco—and Juan’s unusual journey to master his craft.

LAS FALLAS de Valencia - Cultural Lesson AS/ALevels or KS4

LAS FALLAS de Valencia - Cultural Lesson AS/ALevels or KS4

Cultural lesson about my hometown’s big celebration: Las fallas, includes clips, a song and lots of explanations in Spanish about this popular Celebration declared Patrimonio Inmaterial de la Humanidad in 2017. It goes well with the AS/ALevels Spanish AQA topic “El Patrimonio Nacional”. It is also a very good powerpoint if you want to do a cultural lesson with KS3 or KS4 students, however the texts are in TL and would need some translation. I have a KS3 version of the presentation created, please, ask if interested :). I hope you enjoy such a colourful display! Paula PD: I have attached a video about Spanish festivities as a starter , so the file might be a bit heavy, however it also has the videos embeded in the ppt notes.

Essay phrases for A level Spanish students. My students find it really useful and I always make them use six or seven of these sentences per essay. Also I would tell them which ones to use and then they will have to write the essay using the ones I have told them. The phrases are divided in different categories: connectors, opinions, phrases that require subjunctive, introducing an argument, developing an argument and concluding.

Learning a foreign language is a liberation from insularity and provides an opening to other cultures. A high-quality languages education should foster pupils’ curiosity and deepen their understanding of the world. Focus on developing the breadth and depth of pupils’ competence in listening, speaking, reading and writing, based on a sound foundation of core grammar and vocabulary. It should enable pupils to understand and communicate personal and factual information that goes beyond their immediate needs and interests, developing and justifying points of view in speech and writing, with increased spontaneity, independence, and accuracy. It should provide suitable preparation for further study.

Análisis estructural, literario y lingüístico de Calabó y bambú de Luis Palés Matos

Análisis estructural, literario y lingüístico de Calabó y bambú de Luis Palés Matos

En Análisis estructural, literario y lingüístico de Calabó y bambú de Luis Palés Matos se explican sus 34 versos distribuidos en 6 estrofas (10, 6, 4, 6, 6, y 2) son todos agudos; por eso se le añade una sílaba métrica en el conteo de sílabas a cada verso. Son todos los versos trocaicos porque la última sílaba tónica es impar. Desde el primer verso hasta el último son de rima cruzada (ababab…) e idéntica: asonante cuando la última sílaba acentuada termina en vocal y rima consonántica cuando termina en consonante y vocal; ejemplo: Se indica qué es calabó, entre muchas otras palabras: una madera es blanda. Se conoce también por ceiba e ilomba. Es una de las maderas más usadas en la fabricación de tambores. Es el poema más musical en la lengua española. Se incluyen los elementos literario... en las muchas notas al pie de la página. Ya saben, para que aprendan...

Spanish Storyboard

Spanish Storyboard

This is the storyboard template that I use for my Spanish classes when we read different TPRS novels such as ¿Dónde Está Eduardo?, Rebeldes de Tejas, Esperanza, Vida y Muerte en la Mara Salvatrucha, La Hija del Sastre, Guerra Sucia, etc. This storyboard template is blank, so it could be used for whatever novel you use. The template asks students to write their name, the book, the chapter, who, when, and where in Spanish. I sometimes use it as a worksheet and sometimes I use it as an assessment. It works great for both.

Caliche de mi Pulgarcito (Spanish spoken in El Salvador)

Caliche de mi Pulgarcito (Spanish spoken in El Salvador)

Here is a book I have written about the Spanish spoken in El Salvador. It contains 62 pages, a lot of vocabulary, expressions and images used on a daily basis in the Spanish of El Salvador. The whole book is in Spanish and it is arranged in themes. I decided to do this as a little project or challenge as I was learning more about this country and was really interested in the language which is very different from Castellano used in Spain. Many of my friends and family from El Salvador have helped and contributed towards this book. The illustrations in this book were drawn by a local artist who works for a national newspapers in El Salvador. Some extracts of this book could be used in lessons to compare with Castellano Spanish but it is more directed at teachers wanting to increase their knowledge of Spanish or teachers who are just curious and want to learn more about another culture. Enjoy and I hope you find it useful! If you would like to buy a printed copy, you can always contact me directly.
