SPANISH BEGINNERS VOCABULARY

SPANISH BEGINNERS VOCABULARY

This combined set of games and activities really does help students to develop and embed their beginning SPANISH vocabulary in a cooperative, communicative and interactive way. My students love to work independently, and find this a really successful way of embedding vocab into their longer-term memory. They enjoy the opportunity to quiz or test themselves and each other on a regular basis - they’re a very popular alternative to more traditional vocabulary ‘drilling tasks’, and really do help to create a lively language learning environment. The pack features 198 BEGINNERS WORDS AND PHRASES that have always given my students a flying start: **Los saludos Los días de la semana Los meses y las estaciones del año Los números 0-40 Mi familia Los colores Las partes del cuerpo El tiempo Palabras frecuentes Frases útiles para la clase Preguntas y respuestas ** Each set comprises: SPANISH and ENGLISH game cards, with all the words and phrases to use in a variety of games and activities - I’ve suggested a range of games and activities that have worked well for me. This file also includes the game card template, which encourages your students to apply their developing knowledge of SPANISH practically and creatively. There’s definitely a bit of prep involved, but you’ll be able to use the cards for many years, especially if you laminate them. REFERENCE, RECALL & WRITE WORKBOOK - this is an 18-page booklet. There are 3 differentiated RECALL & WRITE challenges to help your students really practice and review the vocabulary: CHILLOUT CHALLENGE: students write from memory all the words and phrases in ENGLISH from a SPANISH prompt - all the words/phrases are in their language category CHAMPION CHALLENGE: students write from memory all the words and phrases in SPANISH from an ENGLISH prompt - again, all the words and phrases are in their language category SUPERCHARGED CHALLENGE: all the words and phrases appear in random order, and switch from SPANISH to ENGLISH at each question - this really does put students’ memories to the test! Encourage students to complete the NOTES & NEXT STEPS sheets regularly - this helps promote reflective learning, encourages students to think about progress they have made, to think about targets for improvement, and how to achieve those targets. There are four non-editable files in a zipped format in this resource pack. Please read the Terms of Use carefully - this resource is copyright, and for single-teacher / purchaser / classroom use only. ¡MUCHAS GRACIAS Y QUE OS DIVIRTÁIS!

Preguntas y respuestas - Board Game

Preguntas y respuestas - Board Game

This is a simple board game designed to practice asking and answering basic personality questions in Spanish. There are two different versions, one with prompts for the answers and the other one with the questions. Students must either read the prompts and fill in the missing information or ask the questions and give the answers, There is also a blank version for the students to fill in with questions / prompts and create their own personalized board game. INSTRUCTIONS Print on A3 paper or cardboard and laminate. You will need counters and dice. The students take turns to throw the dice and move the counters. On each square they fall, they must construct and say out loud the word that names the picture. If they fall on the goose, they must say the magic formula “De oca a oca y tiro por que me toca”, and then they can advance to the next goose and throw the dice a second time. If they fall on Vuelve a la salida, they must go back to the start. If they fall on Pierdes un turno, they must miss their next turn. The first player to get to* Llegada* wins. The ideal number of players is 2, so print as many copies as you need. If there are more than 4 players, the children will get bored waiting for their turn and they will not have enough speaking practice to make the activity meaningful from the point of view of language learning.

GCSE Revision Spanish Speaking Practice New AQA

GCSE Revision Spanish Speaking Practice New AQA

I created these resources for use with my own year 11s coming up to their speaking exams. I wanted to provide them with sample role plays, photos and general conversations so they could physically have the handouts in front of them containing the role play and photo, as well as instructions on the back so they could practice the whole speaking with their partner. The main idea was to facilitate a practice as close to the real thing as possible for my students AND provide them with exemplar answers and key vocab and verbs to help them improve their speaking answers before or after they had practiced with one another. The handouts include the following: FOUNDATION STUDENTS: The themes of the photo, role play and general conversation are: Family and relationships (role play) , Technology (Photo) and Where I live (Part 2, general conversation). HANDOUT 1: Foundation role play and photo for Student A on page 1, with page 2 containing the questions which A will ask their partner B. Clear instructions are there for each part of the speaking exam, together with the unpredicted questions. These will be different from the unpredicted questions which B will have on their handout. HANDOUT 2: Foundation role play and photo for Student B on page 1, with page 2 containing the questions which B will ask their partner A. Clear instructions are there for each part of the speaking exam, together with the unpredicted questions. These will be different from the unpredicted questions which A will have on their handout. HANDOUT 3: Sample answers for both A and B foundation students with key vocab provided. In my lessons, I got students to prepare their answers first (gave them 12 minutes) then got them to read through the sample answers and use these to improve their own answers. Then they practiced the speaking with their partners. HIGHER STUDENTS: The themes are as follows: Future / Marriage (role play) , Technology (Photo) and Where I live (Part 2, general conversation). HANDOUT 4: Higher role play and photo for Student A on page 1, with page 2 containing the questions which A will ask their partner B. Clear instructions are there for each part of the speaking exam, together with the unpredicted questions. These will be different from the unpredicted questions which B will have on their handout. HANDOUT 5: Higher role play and photo for Student B on page 1, with page 2 containing the questions which B will ask their partner A. Clear instructions are there for each part of the speaking exam, together with the unpredicted questions. These will be different from the unpredicted questions which A will have on their handout. HANDOUT 6: Sample answers for both A and B higher students with key vocab provided. You could do as suggested above for foundation students or use it as a reading / translation exercise.
