Worksheets and a few Powerpoint presentations for Modern Languages. Mainly Spanish at the moment and mainly Key Stages 3-4, but one or two Key Stage 5 too. Unfortunately I can only make available a few of my resources at the moment because of copyright problems regarding pictures. I hope my resources are useful to you. I spend quite a lot of time making them and would like to save other busy teachers time preparing resources - so you can get on with teaching.

This is an audiovisual activity for the Immigration sub-topic (AQA A-Level Spanish). It contains a series of questions or gap-fill sentences related to a 2017 Youtube video about immigration from Mexico to the U.S. (I slowed the video down to 0.75 speed for the first listen, then played it at normal speed. This seemed to work well.) Please check the accompanying video (not produced by me) is still available before downloading the worksheet: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TiNHOEm_kHg

KS5 Spanish: Useful Phrases for Speaking Exam (and essays)

KS5 Spanish: Useful Phrases for Speaking Exam (and essays)

There are a few 'useful essay phrases' resources out there online but I put together this one because: 1) I was mainly looking for useful phrases pupils could make use of in the (new AQA) speaking exam when talking about the various topics 2) Existing resources seemed more geared towards structuring an essay 3) ...and many contained many pages of often quite convoluted essay phrases students were fairly unlikely to remember or find an opportunity to use. Yes, virtually all of these phrases would be perfectly suitable in written work too but I have tried to compile a relatively brief (just over 2.5 pages) list of what seem to me the most handy expressions that could be plausibly used when speaking. I have gathered the ones which take the subjunctive in a separate box at the beginning of the document. Easily editable. And there is a box at the end for students to add further phrases.

A-Level Spanish: Racism - SOS Racismo / Interview with SOS Racismo president

A-Level Spanish: Racism - SOS Racismo / Interview with SOS Racismo president

For the KS5 'Racismo' sub-topic. The double-sided worksheet contains two tasks: 1) An introductory gap-fill activity (text summarising what SOS Racismo is and does) 2) An audio-visual activity where students watch a video ( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bi1Xm0sqYr0 ) then answer the 11 accompanying questions. To complete task 2, pupils must watch a Youtube video of an interview with the president of SOS Racismo, who gives examples of racism, including his own experience, and some measures for combatting it. The video gives various other facts about racism in Spain. I would recommend that you reduce the speed of the video to 75% by selecting the Settings icon at the bottom of the video (not available on some tablet apps but visible on PCs), then clicking Speed > 0.75 PLEASE CHECK that the video is still available before downloading the worksheet: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bi1Xm0sqYr0 This sheet will probably take up most of the lesson by the time you have watched the video twice (pausing it to give students a chance to write), gone through the answers and discussed the issues raised. Alternatively, it could be set as a homework. (Images are public domain from openclipart.org unless otherwise credited)

A-Level Spanish: Racism / Conditional Tense

A-Level Spanish: Racism / Conditional Tense

Contains: 1) Worksheet with 20 sentences about combatting racism for students to translate into Spanish. Each requires a verb in the Conditional Tense, including some of the main verbs with irregular stems (and a couple of derivatives, e.g. intervenir). 2) Simple Powerpoint presentation where the sentences appear one by one, followed by the answer.
