New Spanish GCSE - Role Play Practice (speking exam)

This booklet contains 59 role plays to provide Spanish GCSE students with plenty of practice to prepare for their speaking exam. They are on foundation and higher tier and they cover all three themes of the new course (AQA specification). Each role play includes the candidate’s role and the teacher’s role, and both the ‘tú’ and ‘usted’ forms are used. The file also includes a student-friendly summary of the specification for the new speaking exam and the mark scheme for the role play. I have also included files with the mark schemes (foundation and higher) for the speaking test to provide the students with instant, personalised feedback as they complete practice speaking papers.

Here you will find a variety of articles we got our students to read and prepare to talk about in our conversation classes. Most are from El País. Students had to read the articles, look up the vocab (and complete the activities) and be ready to summarise them briefly to their partner. Then, we discussed them in class.

New Spanish A Level: Paper 3 (speaking) discussion cards (Themes 1, 2, 3 and 4).

New Spanish A Level: Paper 3 (speaking) discussion cards (Themes 1, 2, 3 and 4).

This booklet contains 72 speaking cards based on Theme 1, Theme 2, Theme 3 and Theme 4 of the new Spanish A Level course (Aspects of Hispanic society, Artistic culture in the Hispanic world, Multiculturalism in the Hispanic World and Aspects of political life in the Hispanic world). The cards contain (quite a lot) of factual information about the theme (a lot more than the sample cards from AQA) and three questions, the first one always being "How do you react to the information on this card). The aim of presenting the cards like this is to provide the students with a lot of ideas on what to say about the theme, as well as making them more aware that they always have to discuss the information printed on the card (AO2 and AO4). There are six cards for each of the three sub themes that each them covers, and each section is followed by a minimum of 20 questions to encourage the students to explore and discuss the topic further.

Free time: Cinema / TV- Spanish AQA GCSE/ older KS3 - 4 lessons + Project + Speaking frame (Reading, Listening, Writing, Speaking)

This is a bundle of 4 lessons and a research project in relation to the topic of Free-time activities, subtopic TV and cinema in the AQA GCSE specification (originally for the y8 / early GCSE year but can also be used for revision for years 10 &11). These lessons are prepared for the topic of general vocabulary on TV and cinema and opinions. Each lesson highlights different part of the exam hence the 4 of them have Reading, Listening, Writing and Speaking (Role-play) task. The bundle is finalised with the research project which includes the structures and grammar from the whole topic, that can be changed / adapted / differentiated further to your needs. I have also included the speaking framework for the Part 3 of the Higher Tier exam that can also be used in writing practice.

Writing: TV and cinema (opinions) - Spanish - AQA KS3/KS4 GCSE (Speaking / Writing)

Writing: TV and cinema (opinions) - Spanish - AQA KS3/KS4 GCSE (Speaking / Writing)

This is a lesson on TV shows for an early GCSE Spanish class which can be used with a higher year 8 students. The lesson starter is a differentiated reading / writing / grammar task based on the review of a famous cartoon - Secret Life of Pets. Students read the overview of the cartoon and complete the tasks. Then they check the answers followed by phonics practice (resiting tongue twister!). Then I included a mini-test to recap / check whether students remember how to conjugate ‘tener’ in present tense. Consequently they play the Speaking Cube - 6 sides of the cube are completed with the topic questions for the half-term. Students roll a cube (you can either ask them to glue them together or you can make them yourself). I figured 6 cubes per year for each year group is an easy enough task to continue repeating the questions of all half-terms for the whole school year. The template is in the end of the lesson in case you need to change the questions (colours correspond to the difficulty of the question (core- blue, extension is green, violet is killer and pink is super killer). Then they get to revise verb 1 + verb 2 structure and complete a writing task. Before writing I tried to give them some ideas by showing them the Spanish trailer of the cartoon mentioned in the starter activity (they loved it!). The trailer is from Youtube. Finally they self/peer -assess their work by way of analising the success criteria and play a vocabulary game as a reward. The younger students might be allowed to use a dictionary or to think of any word. In any case, feel free to change the rules! Please let me know if there are any problems / ideas! Enjoy!

Role-play: opinions on TV / movies - Spanish - AQA KS3/KS4 GCSE (Role-play)

This is a lesson on TV shows for an early GCSE Spanish class which can be used with a higher year 8 students. The lesson starter is a recap on some simple concepts (articles / gender / adjectival agreement/ spelling) to wake the students up followed by phonics practice (resiting tongue twister!). Then I included a mini-test to recap / check whether students remember topic-related vocabulary. Then they get to revise topic words via online quizlet activity. Students are to choose what quizlet task they want to do based on their level therefore this engaging task is differentiated. Then I have included a game - Roll-A-Word - Students roll a dice to complete different tasks related to the new and / or familiar words (both learning and revising). They count the value of the completed dices to make the task more competitive. Then they revise question words and how to form different types of questions in Spanish. They then jot their thoughts on a Role Play task in pairs (using grammar help - note: we use VCOP mat so if you have one you will need to change the numbers of the grammar points, if not you need to delete few bits, the examples of structures are provided anyway) and complete in in writing individually . Then their ‘Time Pair Share’ the Role Play and self/peer -assess their work by way of analising the success criteria (you might want to show it prior to the task for the novices). Please let me know if there are any problems / ideas! Enjoy!

Opinions on TV programmes - Spanish- AQA GCSE Listening (Sec. A- multiple choice / 1 detail asnwer)

This is a lesson on TV shows for an early GCSE Spanish class which can be used with a higher year 8 students. The lesson includes a translation starter (mini-Reading Section C) to wake the students up followed by phonics practice (resiting tongue twister!). Then I included few mini-tests to recap / check understanding of basic grammar (articles, indirect object pronouns and adjectival agreement). Then they get to know new words via online quizlet activity. Students are to choose what quizlet task they want to do based on their level therefore this engaging task is differentiated. Then I have included a quick match-up activity to check whether they remember the words they have just learned. I then introduce a Listening activity related to the opinions on TV watching preferences. It has two parts - multiple choice and one detail answer to account for two types of tasks in the Listening exam spec. Students complete a series of tasks to enhance their understanding - translate the keywords into Spanish to make the Listening easier, discuss unknown words in a group and use applications / dictionaries to find out the meaning of the unknown words. Finally they analise the way they should answer the questions , complete the task and self-assess their work. I have included the handout with the task to ease the pain. Please note that there is no listening file - see the end of the presentation for teacher’s handout and for the students one. Enjoy!

KS3/KS4 French-Speaking Cube/Tarsia/Conjugation Learning Grid Games (speaking / writing / revision)

KS3/KS4 French-Speaking Cube/Tarsia/Conjugation Learning Grid Games (speaking / writing / revision)

These are two grammar games that I decided to share. I would use them for pretty much all age groups, both KS3 and KS4, GCSE both tiers. They can be easily amended to suit the grammar topics that you wish to reinforce / revise / introduce. See enclosed: Tarsia slide and template - an activity to use to revise topic / key vocabulary. Students can either create their own or just cut the one you prepare for them. They need to then match the words / expressions in English with their French equivalents. Speaking Cube - 6 sides of the cube are completed with the topic questions for the half-term. Students roll a cube (you can either ask them to glue them together or you can make them yourself). I figured 6 cubes per year for each year group is an easy enough task to continue repeating the questions of all half-terms for the whole school year. I included an origami version of the cube in case you wish to ask them to make the cube and to write the questions on their own (I took the scheme from the Google images so I do not claim any rights on that one.) Verb conjugation Learning Grid (differentiated) - Students roll two dices to identify the tense and the pronoun they need to use. To make the task more complicated for more advanced students I ask them to create a sentence using the verb they got with particular amount of words to further challenge higher tier students. I would highly recommend it for the KS4 students. Let me know how it goes!

AQA GCSE Spanish Games Roll-a-Word//Speaking Cube// OXO (speaking / writing /translation / revision)

These are few grammar games that I decided to share. I would use them for pretty much all age groups, both KS3 and KS4, GCSE both tiers. They can be easily amended to suit the grammar topics that you wish to reinforce / revise / introduce. The templates can also be easily reused for French. See enclosed: Roll-A-Word - Students roll a dice to complete different tasks related to the new and / or familiar words (both learning and revising). They count the value of the completed dices to make the task more competitive. Speaking Cube - 6 sides of the cube are completed with the topic questions for the half-term. Students roll a cube (you can either ask them to glue them together or you can make them yourself). I figured 6 cubes per year for each year group is an easy enough task to continue repeating the questions of all half-terms for the whole school year. I included an origami version of the cube in case you wish to ask them to make the cube and to write the questions on their own (I took the scheme from the Google images so I do not claim any rights on that one.) OXO - One of my favourite tasks to develop spontaneous speaking. Students play OXO in turns following the rules. The ? (= random/phantom question or topic) can be used to increase the level of complexity of the game. Furthermore, a certain set of rules can be imposed, e.g. ‘ensure you use a preterite tense of your choosing as main verb of the ‘!’ box. It can be played using ‘home and away’ tables, i.e. grouping students by ability bands, so that all low/medium/high band students play together, which might, for example, allow the teacher to put in place bespoke interventions to support those in need of guidance. I have included three templates of OXO that can be used as a speaking, writing and translation tasks, differentiated according to the level of knowledge and KS group. See noted for additional ideas and hints. Let me know how it goes!

Spanish. Important verbs list writing and speaking

Spanish. Important verbs list writing and speaking

If you struggle to narrow down the verbs that every GCSE student needs for their written exam, this is the document you are looking for. It has the 13 highest frequency verbs already conjugated as I, he/she and we on 4 tenses. Aside from that, every tense go alongside time phrases an connectors and on the bottom of the page there are complex structures which can be used on the student’s writing. The document works espeacially well with the kind of student who is afraid of verb lists, allowing you to hand over the page and say “Just learn this by hearth and I promise you can write about anything”. I hope it is helpful.
