Preguntas orales para Spanish Year 1 (AQA)_Bank of prompting questions and advice

Preguntas orales para Spanish Year 1 (AQA)_Bank of prompting questions and advice

¡Al fin acabé!I have finally finished putting together oral questions to practice for the speaking. This is a 26 pages booklet with a few hundred questions that students can use to practice but also to research some topic areas. First couple of pages also include info about the oral examination and some tips.And then, there is a bank of idioms that students can use with translations and examples of the idioms so that they can see how they would be used. They are all grouped per topic but can be used for lots of other topics.

En el restaurante: Menús de países hispanohablantes (Year 7)

En el restaurante: Menús de países hispanohablantes (Year 7)

This resource is a market place activity in which students have to work in groups in a carrousel style. Every group has the vocab sheet to gather vocab and create their own glossary plus a reading comprehension sheet to fill in whilst they have the menu. It is important that students divide the work up: some can look up the vocabulary whilst the others can answer the questions. Or, they could all spend some minutes looking up the words first and then answering the questions. You can use the stopwatch website and its timers so that students can see how much time they have left.The aim is that they read the menus and that they get to learn about other countries and their famous dishes whilst consolidating some of the Food vocab they learnt in previous lessons. There are menus for a Basque restaurant, a Catalan restaurant, a Mexican restaurant and the last one is a menu from Costa Rica. This activity takes up the whole hour (if you get every group to look at 2 menus) and I used it at the end of the Food Unit. You can also use the menus for Role Plays the next lesson. If your groups do 2 menus then you can get your students to talk to the rest about the food they learnt that people eat in those countries.I used this activity with a Y7 class and it worked very well. Students were engaged and they loved the role plays we did the following lesson. As a follow up activity you could ask them to design their own menus of other Spanish speaking countries. They could use the computers to do some research and then do their designs.

Speaking cards, general questions and situations La identidad regional (AQA)

Speaking cards, general questions and situations La identidad regional (AQA)

This is the 5th instalment of stimulus cards, questions and an exercise for improvisation in preparation for the AQA oral exam. **Please note there might be a problem seeing the preview. TES are aware of this and are trying to solve the issue.**The stimulus cards focus, amongst other subtopics, on the celebration of El Día E (Día del español); el "tapeo", regional stereotypes ("Ocho Apellidos Vascos");the waste of food in La Tomatina... This time I have put more emphasis on the students being critical and analytical, as they would have moved to the second part of the AS and they are more able to make comparisons, deductions, etc. The cards include the source so that they can not only be practiced in class but could be used for background reading prior to the preparation and practice.The general questions are self explanatory! Finally, I have included an exercise for improvisation where students have to say/write the opposite and can develop arguments as detailed as you ask them!I welcome any feedback on this resource or any of the series (they are all published in TES). Hopefully, they will make your life easier and your students will feel challenged, enjoy and learn with them. Hasta la próxima, Blanca

Perfect at Easter. Both Spanish and French. Borrowed a Spanish quiz on TES and adapted added rounds and made it Easter-like!! Starter: Information exchange, pupils have a card they have 3-4 mins to go around the room and exchange information. They ask questions and give the answers and if they don't know the answer they like the fact they can say I don't know!! Once a piece of info has been exchanged, whether that person knew the answer or not they should exchange dominoes and move on. Collect in dominoes and tell them to remember as much as they can.

Spanish AS 2016 - Questions to prepare for the speaking exam

Spanish AS 2016 - Questions to prepare for the speaking exam

This is a 17-pages workbook I have created for my Year 12 students this year according to the new exam and specification given by Edexcel. Having a look at the sample materials, I have realised the way they ask questions have changed a little bit. They are not asked their opinion on something irrelevant, it is always something to do with the Spanish or Latin American cultures. For example, they are not asked "Do you like music?" but "What do you think about Spanish music?". Following this I have created this booklet which includes questions on all topics and a brief explanation of the exam.

GCSE SPANISH - Customs and Festivals - COLOUR MATCH

GCSE SPANISH - Customs and Festivals - COLOUR MATCH

This is a colour match exercise to practise vocabulary from the AQA syllabus. Students find a pair which mean the same, in English and Spanish. They then colour them the same colour. If they run out of colours they could use stripes, spots etc. If you are short on time they could number the boxes instead of colouring them in. The second sheet is for students to fill in the words as they find them and then to use as a vocab list. This is useful for a starter, a cover lesson or a homework
