Spanish A2 Student Handbook and Grammar Booklet

Spanish A2 Student Handbook and Grammar Booklet

Over the last couple of months, I have been adapting the student & grammar booklet that I use in A2 and this is the version I have adapted to TES. I complement this booklet with some other sheets that other teachers have shared over the years. If you leave a comment with your email address I can send you the other stuff I complement it with.I have tried to merge into one booklet the grammar & translation sheets I use with my students. They find this booklet useful and I am sure the new A2 students will like it too!It comes with hundreds of translation exercises and some A2 grammar like perfect subjunctive tenses, if clauses, passives and verbs that are followed by a preposition. I also added the AQA mark schemes and some essay titles for La casa de Bernarda Alba and El Laberinto del Fauno. I Included idioms and many more things! This booklet is 87 pages so you can imgine all the stuff I have added :) Please leave some feedback :) Would like to know what other teachers think of it! So leave some feedback please :)

A2 Speaking cards

A2 Speaking cards

A simple set of 54 speaking cards on the topics of:ENVIRONMENT >Pollution >Energy >Protecting the planetTHE MULTICULTURAL SOCIETY >Immigration >Integration >RacismCONTEMPORARY SOCIAL ISSUES >Wealth and poverty >Law and order >IT Just print and play!To be honest I love these cards simply because they are so easy to store (can easily fit into the palm of your hand) and the students can take them with them as either homework or practice. Somehow students are keener to work on a small card rather than the normal A4 format for some reason. I guess it looks like less hard work when it's really the same :) .

Spanish Lesson Plan - Language through Music - Song: Ella y El by Ricardo Arjona

Spanish Lesson Plan - Language through Music - Song: Ella y El by Ricardo Arjona

The idea of Language Through Music is to learn Spanish by looking at modern popular hits from the Latin American music world. Songs are chosen following a specific criteria. They will generally cover topics of historical/social/political interest tackling issues affecting modern Latin American society, thereby creating opportunity for discussion and practice of oral skills. Furthermore it this gives the teacher the possibility interlink a wider ranger of activities within the same lesson/set of lesson. Some songs may be chosen due to a particularly interesting use of language and/or presence of particular expressions that are worth looking at in detail. Due to copyright reasons I cannot include the original audio file with the material, however all of the songs will be widely available on the net/Youtube/iTunes and I will provide a working link.The use of realia such modern songs in the learning process will give the student more of a feel of real-world application of his language skills as well as an enriching cultural experience in itself.Spanish lesson plan for up to 3 hours.In depth analysis of the song "Ella y El" by the popular Guatemalan songwriter Ricardo Arjona.This song touches a number of topics but the main one regards the Cuban Embargo and Cuba's social/political history during the last 50 years.Includes:- Full Lyrics text of the song- Comprehension questions relating to the content of the text- 2 pages of exercises aimed at developing a deeper understanding of the expressions and metaphors used in the song.- Reading comprehension text "La Historia del Bloqueo en Cuba"- Set of questions related to the text.- A Mind map outlining important points for a class discussion on the topic.Youtube link for the song:https://youtu.be/K6PXwxi4eJIANSWER SHEET is not included cause many questions are discussion based however if you require answer guidelines I will be happy to provide you with a free copy.
