KS5 Spanish: Useful Phrases for Speaking Exam (and essays)

KS5 Spanish: Useful Phrases for Speaking Exam (and essays)

There are a few 'useful essay phrases' resources out there online but I put together this one because: 1) I was mainly looking for useful phrases pupils could make use of in the (new AQA) speaking exam when talking about the various topics 2) Existing resources seemed more geared towards structuring an essay 3) ...and many contained many pages of often quite convoluted essay phrases students were fairly unlikely to remember or find an opportunity to use. Yes, virtually all of these phrases would be perfectly suitable in written work too but I have tried to compile a relatively brief (just over 2.5 pages) list of what seem to me the most handy expressions that could be plausibly used when speaking. I have gathered the ones which take the subjunctive in a separate box at the beginning of the document. Easily editable. And there is a box at the end for students to add further phrases.

El tema de la obediencia en El Laberinto: traducción

Translation from English into Spanish on this theme. The translation adds up to key points useful for revision/essay writing. I made this resource with the help of the Hodder publication on the film (an excellent film guide, by the way!). Happy teaching and learning, Blanca.
