Essay writing phrases for Spanish (GCSE & A level)

Essay writing phrases for Spanish (GCSE & A level)

Essay phrases for A level Spanish students. My students find it really useful and I always make them use six or seven of these sentences per essay. Also I would tell them which ones to use and then they will have to write the essay using the ones I have told them. The phrases are divided in different categories: connectors, opinions, phrases that require subjunctive, introducing an argument, developing an argument and concluding.
