This is just a Spanish version of the French game I uploaded. You can edit it to suit your groups. All they need are counters and dice. Throw the die and move forward and give the Spanish.

Speaking Test - Revision Wheel - Identity and Culture

An adaptable resource to enable students to prepare for the question and answer element of the speaking test. Students prepare answers on the wheel. There is a sheet of vocabulary and phrases to help them.
The wheel is best printed out on A3 paper to give students ample space to write their responses. It also works best if the students colour-code their responses to match the colour of the question. Teachers can change the questions easily electronically if they prefer to use different questions. At the end of the Technology document there is a photograph example of a completed wheel to share with students by means of an explanation. Important - the final step is to print off a blank pro forma. Students cut it the circle in the middle so they can see the questions and cut it the ‘triangles’ which cover their answers. They can then reveal questions one by one whilst learning, bit by bit for testing or get partners to test chosen segments.
More themes to follow.

GCSE German General Conversation Booklet with Sample Answers Foundation

Two versions of a GCSE German speaking preparation booklet, one with sample answers and one without for students to prepare themselves. Both booklets are foundation level. The student booklet has lines under each question to guide them as to how much they should prepare. Originally based on AQA, but will still be useful for other exam boards. A similar booklet for higher is also available.

AQA GCSE German photocard help mat

Adapted from a resource that was shared at a new spec GCSE course that I attended last year. I have printed the mats in colour, double-sided and laminated. They have been invaluable for helping to prompt weaker students when describing a photo.
