GCSE Revision Spanish Speaking Practice New AQA

GCSE Revision Spanish Speaking Practice New AQA

I created these resources for use with my own year 11s coming up to their speaking exams. I wanted to provide them with sample role plays, photos and general conversations so they could physically have the handouts in front of them containing the role play and photo, as well as instructions on the back so they could practice the whole speaking with their partner. The main idea was to facilitate a practice as close to the real thing as possible for my students AND provide them with exemplar answers and key vocab and verbs to help them improve their speaking answers before or after they had practiced with one another. The handouts include the following: FOUNDATION STUDENTS: The themes of the photo, role play and general conversation are: Family and relationships (role play) , Technology (Photo) and Where I live (Part 2, general conversation). HANDOUT 1: Foundation role play and photo for Student A on page 1, with page 2 containing the questions which A will ask their partner B. Clear instructions are there for each part of the speaking exam, together with the unpredicted questions. These will be different from the unpredicted questions which B will have on their handout. HANDOUT 2: Foundation role play and photo for Student B on page 1, with page 2 containing the questions which B will ask their partner A. Clear instructions are there for each part of the speaking exam, together with the unpredicted questions. These will be different from the unpredicted questions which A will have on their handout. HANDOUT 3: Sample answers for both A and B foundation students with key vocab provided. In my lessons, I got students to prepare their answers first (gave them 12 minutes) then got them to read through the sample answers and use these to improve their own answers. Then they practiced the speaking with their partners. HIGHER STUDENTS: The themes are as follows: Future / Marriage (role play) , Technology (Photo) and Where I live (Part 2, general conversation). HANDOUT 4: Higher role play and photo for Student A on page 1, with page 2 containing the questions which A will ask their partner B. Clear instructions are there for each part of the speaking exam, together with the unpredicted questions. These will be different from the unpredicted questions which B will have on their handout. HANDOUT 5: Higher role play and photo for Student B on page 1, with page 2 containing the questions which B will ask their partner A. Clear instructions are there for each part of the speaking exam, together with the unpredicted questions. These will be different from the unpredicted questions which A will have on their handout. HANDOUT 6: Sample answers for both A and B higher students with key vocab provided. You could do as suggested above for foundation students or use it as a reading / translation exercise.
