AQA A Level Spanish - Topics and Ideas - Year 2 only

This features ideas and key examples of information that’s relevant and useful for both the speaking and writing exams. It’s perfect for revision or teaching as it presents the ideas and examples from the Hispanic world that go above and beyond what can be found in the textbook in an accessible and easy-to-read way. I have found it very useful, as have my classmates and my teacher!

AQA A Level Spanish Topic Summaries and Ideas - Years 1&2

AQA A Level Spanish Topic Summaries and Ideas - Years 1&2

These powerpoints were made by me during my A Level Spanish studies; they summarise key facts, figures and discussion points relating to each of the topics and sub-themes which will help when it comes to studying and revising for the speaking exam, as well as vocabulary for the written exams. They include all of the year one and year two topics, as well as useful vocab that’s either listed or used within each slide. It’s set out in an easy-to-use order to avoid confusion and has extra information (e.g. examples of events in the Spanish-speaking world which are relevant to each sub-theme and can be very impressive in the exam) and is handy for finding what you’re looking for. My teacher will be using these to support her next class, I am sure it will be very helpful!

New Spec - Social Issues - Spanish AQA GCSE Vocab Flicker - Great Revision Resource!

New Spec - Social Issues - Spanish AQA GCSE Vocab Flicker - Great Revision Resource!

GCSE Social Issues - A self-flicking Powerpoint Presentation which has taken the vocabulary from the New AQA Spanish Specification. Great Revision tool which has the translation on the notes to support with the wording AQA use in the Specification, but also if a non-Spanish specialist is running key interventions for revision. It starts and stops with ‘S’ and to come out of it you need to press ‘esc.’ Vocabulary is collated into Foundation and Higher so it can be paused easily for different abilities.
