What is the Date? (Game for French / Spanish / German / Italian / Other Languages)

What is the Date? (Game for French / Spanish / German / Italian / Other Languages)

10 Four in a Row game boards for practising saying the date in French, Spanish, German, Italian and lots of other languages. I originally created this to help pupils answer the French question 'Quelle est la date?' but there is no reference to French on the boards so they can be used for other languages. Pupils will practise calendar vocabulary - months, days of the week and numbers to thirty-one.Includes:5 boards with the month and date5 further boards with the month, date and dayA fun language learning activity which is ideal for a starter, early finisher task, main lesson consolidation work or as part of a bank of revision activities. Print in either A3 or A4 and laminate for regular use. Individuals or pairs play against each other, taking it in turns to roll a dice before choosing a date in the correct column (columns are labelled 1-6) to say in the target language. If correct, they could put their symbol or initial over it in a wipeable pen or cover it with a counter of a different colour to their opponent. The first player/team to get 4 in a row vertically, horizontally or diagonally is the winner. With 10 boards in total, they can swap with other pairs/groups when finished to have another game.I hope your pupils enjoy playing this if you choose to buy it. I would be so grateful for a review if you get a spare moment. Many thanks.If teaching French, you might be interested in some of my other resources (games, worksheets, presentations, activities, puzzles) for that language.

Flashcards - OCR GCSE Spanish: Vocabulary List - General

Flashcards - OCR GCSE Spanish: Vocabulary List - General

I have put every word in the vocabulary list that OCR publishes onto flashcards. This pack is just on the topic of General words from the vocabulary list, but I have published all the other topics here on TES. If you are familiar with these words then the exam will be incredibly easy, since these are the only words that they will use in the exam. In this bundle, I have printed a pack with pictures, a pack in which you fold down the middle and a pack which you print double sided. The different packs are all exactly the same words, just choose the one which will help the words stick in your mind.

French and Spanish GCSE Essentials Booklets with interactive lessons

French and Spanish GCSE Essentials Booklets with interactive lessons

This bundle contains the comprehensive essentials booklets I created with exercises to practise revision. Having studied many years' worth of listening and reading exams in French and Spanish, it was apparent that common language kept appearing. These booklets contain the non-negotiable vocabulary all students really need. I have added in some interactive lessons as well that can be used to recap the basics. These can be uploaded on a VLE for students to practise their pronunciation at home.
