I am a teacher of Spanish and French who loves creating highly visual, engaging resources and using them to teach Spanish and French both in school and on YouTube.

This resource is designed to give students an appealing visual way to conjugate verbs. It allows teachers to quiz students on pronouns in English and Spanish (can be changed to French), verb endings and verb conjugations. It has adapted versions to help students to make sense of stem-changing and irregular verbs.

Watch my YouTube lesson (linked) to see how I teach using this resource, using my ‘las vacaciones de los verbos’ story.

The idea behind this resource is the following:

  1. Verbs are organised into their six conjugations with 1st 2nd and 3rd person single on the left (“singles on the left”) and the 1st 2nd and 3rd person plural on the right (“couples on the right”). Students can imagine single rooms on the left side of the hotel, and double or family rooms on the right.

  2. The pronouns are animated in both English and Spanish so students can be quizzed on them before tackling the actual verb conjugation.

  3. The verb to be conjugated is placed in the “today’s chef’s special” board, and the correct conjugations are animated so they can be shown as students answer questions or once they have written the conjugations on mini whiteboards, for example.

  4. There is an adapted version for ‘boot’, ‘L shaped’ or ‘stem-changing’ verbs, in which the top right of the hotel is green. This is a “no stem-changing” area in the hotel. There is another version for true irregulars, but the changes are purely aesthetic so nothing to explain there.

Finally, the resource is LGBT+ and non-binary friendly by including the singular they and leaving a space in ‘nosotr_s’, ‘vosotr_s’ and ‘ell_s’ for an ‘o’, ‘a’, ‘@’, ‘X’ or ‘e’ to be added, in line with Spanish inclusive language.

Please feel free to adapt and share on, provided I am credited for the original work.
