Modern foreign languages - Contributor of the week


Starr Green, aka Rosaespanola, never intended to be a teacher. However, after working as an English assistant in Quebec, Canada, and spending time as an assistant for the Comenius programme in Iceland, she returned to England to complete a PGCE and is now a secondary MFL teacher and a member of the TES panel. She has shared more than 700 resources, which have been downloaded more than 335,000 times. Here are just a few.

For a creative and active approach to speaking practice, Rosaespanola's murder mystery lesson uses clues to help pupils discover which item on the menu was poisoned.

A partner-based pirate activity helps pupils to use body-part vocabulary and form sentences to explain ailments.

A competitive lesson on describing people introduces sentence patterns before leading into a game of Guess Who?

Get pupils up on their feet and working in teams to try to accurately remember text in a lesson that improves memory and thinking skills, as well as accuracy in spelling and grammar.
