MARÍA LLENA ERES DE GRACIA - THREE A- LEVEL LANGUAGE TASKS

(1)
Three tasks relating to the great film María llena eres de gracia, a film that can be studied for the AQA A-level. These resources would work well immediately after an initial viewing of the film. One is a PowerPoint with sentences requiring students to translate into Spanish, another a Word document with a brief plot synopsis requiring translation into English. The final task is an activity requiring students to match sentence starters to the correct endings, relating to various events that take place in the film. Very nicely presented and with a great flow between activities.
