Flashcards - OCR GCSE Spanish: Vocabulary List - Entertainment

I have put every word in the vocabulary list that OCR publishes onto flashcards. This pack is just on the topic of Entertainment, 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.

La influencia de los ídolos: Estrellas de televisión y cine (focuses on Dani Rovira)

This is a resource I created for my Year 12 Spanish group. It is based on pages 76-77 of the AQA A Level text book (unit 4: influencia de los idolos), though does not include many of the activities from those pages. The resources could be used as revision or as an introduction to the sub-topic 'estrellas de televisión y de cine'. These resources include a section on connectives to go with page 77 of the text book.The resources include:1. Starter activity on vocabulary to describe film categories 2. Video clip showing Dani Rovira discussing politics. It is advised only to play the clip from 6.14-7.05. He speaks at with a strong Andalusian accent, but there is vocabulary available under the gap-filling activity. The link to the video is: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=swYOsZ_WrEE 3. Reading comprehension based on the text on page 76 and this should be used to trigger a discussion on controversial celebrities.4. Gap filling activity on connectives5. Photo card practice, including suggested phrases
