Spanish Speaking exam Booklet

This is a booklet I created for my Yr 10 and Yr11 students. This has been a great tool for them to prepare and revise for their speaking exam. When they have to fill it in, I insist they need to do PPROF (Present, Past, Future, Opinions and Reasons) in every single question - if at all possible.

Spanish GCSE writing & translation revision booklet: complex and idiomatic phrases lists & examples

A comprehensive list of phrases and structures for pupils to revise and to aim to include in their speaking/writing.
This is a final definitive list my own pupils have been using in the run up to the exams, trying to include examples in their speaking and writing. The list includes everything from modal verbs and opinion phrases to subjunctives clauses and conditional sentences. The phrases are split into 22 groups, each with some translation practice too, so as pupils can see how easy it is to manipulate these themselves.

Suggested answers included and the document can be downloaded in .doc and .pdf.
