A 13 pages booklet to help higher ability GCSE students to work independently and and to include a wider variety of structures in their written work.
There are two sections in the booklet:
Section 1 focuses on tenses, and it includes a summary of how to conjugate the present tense, the preterite, the imperfect, the future simple and the conditional, as well as verb tables for AR, ER and IR verbs in those tenses, including tables for six irregular verbs (ser, tener, estar, ir, poder and haber). This is followed by a explanation on how to conjugate and use a further four tenses: the present perfect, the present continuous, the pluperfect and the conditional perfect.
Section 2 focuses on other structures that will help the students include variety and complexity:
- lo + adjectives
- comparatives and superlatives
- conditionals ('si' clauses)
- the infinitive
- the present subjunctive
- object pronouns
- other useful structures
Finally, the booklet includes a "check list" or a guide of the kind of structures that the students would be expected to include in work that is graded 4-5, 6-7 or 8-9.
