AQA A Level Spanish Topic Summaries and Ideas - Years 1&2

AQA A Level Spanish Topic Summaries and Ideas - Years 1&2

These powerpoints were made by me during my A Level Spanish studies; they summarise key facts, figures and discussion points relating to each of the topics and sub-themes which will help when it comes to studying and revising for the speaking exam, as well as vocabulary for the written exams. They include all of the year one and year two topics, as well as useful vocab that’s either listed or used within each slide. It’s set out in an easy-to-use order to avoid confusion and has extra information (e.g. examples of events in the Spanish-speaking world which are relevant to each sub-theme and can be very impressive in the exam) and is handy for finding what you’re looking for. My teacher will be using these to support her next class, I am sure it will be very helpful!

New Spec - Social Issues - Spanish AQA GCSE Vocab Flicker - Great Revision Resource!

New Spec - Social Issues - Spanish AQA GCSE Vocab Flicker - Great Revision Resource!

GCSE Social Issues - A self-flicking Powerpoint Presentation which has taken the vocabulary from the New AQA Spanish Specification. Great Revision tool which has the translation on the notes to support with the wording AQA use in the Specification, but also if a non-Spanish specialist is running key interventions for revision. It starts and stops with ‘S’ and to come out of it you need to press ‘esc.’ Vocabulary is collated into Foundation and Higher so it can be paused easily for different abilities.

La inmigracion en Espana - Immigration in Spain

La inmigracion en Espana - Immigration in Spain

Powerpoint and authentic text comprehensionto introduce the topic of immigration in Spain. Activities throughout. Then leads on to an article from September 2015 which discusses Spain's political views on the topic, specifically related to the situation of the young Syrian boy who was found washed up on a Turkish beach after his family fled their home country. The article came from El Pais originally, but I have made it a little shorter and written comprehension questions including translation, writing answers in your own words, etc. Hope it is useful!

This a lesson to talk about films and racism. The lesson starts with comments about three Spanish films that have the same topic in common, the racism. Students can express their opinion about which one would be more interested to watch after reading the sypnosis of the films. They can think of a different film with the same topic to write the sypnosis and tell their classmate about it. The last activity is to talk about people who live in a foreign country, their opinions and comments about what they found difficult living abroad. Students express (using the condicional tense) what they think would be difficult for them if they were living in another country. Objectives: To express opinion To practice present, past and future tense To practice the condicional tense To learn new vocabulary related to racism To improve the oral, writing and reading skills
