This is a series of posters to show the problems of Google Translate. It gives strange and sometimes funny examples of when Google Translate hasn’t worked well.
This should discourage students from using machine translations or online translations, and instead use websites such as Collins Dictionary or WordReference.
KS3 and KS4 Spanish extension worksheets. It covers irregular present, preterite and immediate future / near future tenses. There are a range of activities to keep stretch students further. It would work well for Gifted and Talented students in KS3, and any students in KS4 for more practice.
The activities are structured to help students Recognise, Reconstruct and Recreate the language. The fourth worksheet includes an area to Review what has been learned across the four sheets.
This is planned to be a series of 20 worksheets in total.
I made a quick poster to describe what should be used in writing for Spanish. This could also be adapted for French. It uses the acronym TROPICS - Tenses, Reasons, Opinions, People, Intensifiers, Connectives, Sentence Starters.
Could be used for classroom displays or perhaps to just present to the class.
This is a Spanish lesson aimed at KS3 to teach some food basics. It has a quiz, a game and a dialogue. At the end it has translations.
It has been made with animations and can be edited. You can add in whatever materials you would like that you’d use in your lesson (this is just a basic lesson to be added to)
I have created an updated version of a blockbusters template to use in various lessons for French, Spanish or MFL in general.
All you need to do is type what you want in the faint orange hexagons, then click and drag to select all of the green hexagons. Then drag them over the top of the orange hexagons, so students will have to tell you the letter they want first and then be able to answer the question.
Clicking on the white bar will turn the hexagon white, and the blue one will turn it blue.
This is a poster of when to use the Spanish verb ESTAR, using the acronym PLACE - Position, Location, Action, Condition, Emotion.
I have also included a poster of when to use the Spanish verb SER, using the acronym DOCTOR - Description, Origin, Character, Time, Occupation, Relation.
This can be used alongside GCSE curricula, AQA or Edexcel, for explaining when to use ser and estar. It includes a description of when they’re used, a link to a Kahoot and a quiz. It also has a plenary activity to write a description of a famous person.
During covid times, I’ve created a list of tasks for students to attempt that do not involve a computer. The poster attached is aimed at KS3, but could also be used for KS4. It’s an A4 poster that you can send home to give some ideas.
