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.

Learning Spanish The Fun Way! Bundle

Learning Spanish The Fun Way! Bundle

Are you learning Spanish? Are you looking for a fun way to learn Spanish? I have developed a way to learn different languages based on my experience as an ESL teacher. This pack has 57 different settings for students to talk about in Spanish. The worksheets themselves are in English and the students do need to translate the places and objects they see into Spanish. At the end of the session, the students can play a fun game of word bingo to show they have mastered that day's vocabulary. Try it, it is a lot of fun for everyone!

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.
