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.

Spanish Vocabulary Lists for the AQA topics of Family, Cyber, Idols, Heritage and Identity

Spanish Vocabulary Lists for the AQA topics of Family, Cyber, Idols, Heritage and Identity

Find attached the pdf and word files for the 3 first units that I have made for my students. It includes lots of vocabulary for every unit! The aim is that first students try to fill in as much as possible and then they use the dictionaries in class and work in groups to add the translation. Or you can set it for homework. We use the lists almost every lesson and they do some minutes of silent revision of the column we are currently learning, practice testing and then I test them using the miniwhiteboards. At the end of the lesson I test them again using the miniwhiteboards. They also have the Memrise courses for every column.
