New Spanish A Level: Fact file. Perfect for home learning.

(2)
This document includes a lot of factual information about Spain and other Spanish speaking countries, covering all the themes and sub themes of the new Spanish A level course (AQA specification). The 48-page file (I’ve uploaded a PDF and a Word version) includes three or more pages per sub theme with a lot of figures, statistics, data and examples relevant to that sub theme. Most of the information refers to Spain, as it is the country I know best, but other Spanish speaking countries are also referred to. I first started writing this resource in the weeks leading to the year 13 speaking exam with the objective of providing the students with a single document where they could find a lot of relevant information that they could refer to when discussing the topics in the first part of their exam. I believe that they found it very useful. The information here can also be easily adapted and used in other activities, such as reading activities or translations.
