The booklet is divided into three sections: Part 1: role plays. This section contains 59 role plays (at both foundation and higher level) and cover all three themes of the AQA specification ( Theme 1 Identity and culture, Theme 2 Local, regional, international and global areas of interest and Theme 3 Current and future education and work).

New Spanish A Level: Paper 3 (speaking) discussion cards (Themes 1, 2, 3 and 4).

New Spanish A Level: Paper 3 (speaking) discussion cards (Themes 1, 2, 3 and 4).

This booklet contains 72 speaking cards based on Theme 1, Theme 2, Theme 3 and Theme 4 of the new Spanish A Level course (Aspects of Hispanic society, Artistic culture in the Hispanic world, Multiculturalism in the Hispanic World and Aspects of political life in the Hispanic world). The cards contain (quite a lot) of factual information about the theme (a lot more than the sample cards from AQA) and three questions, the first one always being “How do you react to the information on this card?” or similar). The aim of presenting the cards like this is to provide the students with a lot of ideas on what to say about the theme, as well as making them more aware that they always have to discuss the information printed on the card (AO2 and AO4). There are eighteen cards for each theme (six cards for each sub theme), and each section is followed by a minimum of 20 questions to encourage the students to explore and discuss the topic further. The booklet ends with a list of vocabulary useful for the speaking test, and it also includes an overview of the A Level course, of Paper 3 and of the assessment criteria.

New Spanish A Level: Fact file

New Spanish A Level: Fact file

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.

Getting to know my tutor group  / my class - Back to school / Induction day activity (Ice breaker)

Getting to know my tutor group / my class - Back to school / Induction day activity (Ice breaker)

A quick activity to use on the first session with a new tutor group (ideally with a group in which students don’t know each other previously). Students wander around the classroom finding people who meet a series of requirements (e.g. “Find three people who hate Justin Bieber” or “Find one person who has more pets than you”). If used with a vertical tutor group you can instruct students to not talk to other students in the same year group. And with a year 7 class they can be told to avoid people in their year group.

New Spanish GCSE - Grammar booklets (Cuadernos de gramática)

This resource contains two different versions of my grammar booklet. The content of both booklets is basically the same, but while the full version is 62 pages long, the reduced version is more printing-budget friendly, with 37pages. Both versions of the booklet contain a very comprehensive summary of the grammar required to succeed in the new GCSE course and numerous activities for the students. Each booklet is divided in three sections, one for each theme of the new GCSE, and withing each of those there are two parts, one dedicated to verbs and one dedicated to all the other lexical categories. Each entry of the booklet focuses on one aspect of grammar, with a brief explanation of how to use the structure that is being covered, the rules and exceptions that need to be taken into account, and a variety of examples. This is always followed by an “Ahora practica” section with activities for the students to complete. Whenever possible, the examples and activities match the theme that the specific structure has been included under (e.g., the majority of examples and activities used to study the present tense will be related to the topics from theme 1 - relationships, technology, leisure and festivals).

This booklet contains a detailed overview of the key vocabulary for the new Spanish GCSE. While it is not an exhaustive list, it contains a lot of vocabulary items organised according to each of the themes and topics of the new course and their lexical category. The booklet starts with an overview of the course and the different themes and topics. This is followed with a section of exam rubrics in Spanish, taken from the AQA specification and from the 2018 exams (all four skills, at foundation and higher level). The next section includes general vocabulary: asking questions, comparisons, quantifiers, conjunctions, connectives, negatives and prepositions. The final section includes a page of key vocabulary for each of the topics (therefore four pages per theme) of the course. Each page contains on average ten key nouns, ten key verbs and ten key adjectives on the topic, followed by a blank page for students to add their own vocabulary. I have uploaded two versions of the booklet: the first version only contains the Spanish words, without the English translation, and it can be used for starter or plenary activities in the lesson. The other one is the full version of the booklet, with the English translation.

Each part has two sections, one devoted to verbs and the other one to other lexical categories. Both books contain a lot of examples and activities for the students. This version of the booklet takes into account that printing budget can be tight, so I have re formated the original, 62-page booklet, and taken out a few examples, so it is now 37 pages (the last three being verb tables that can be printed separately), but it still contains detailed explanations of a variety of grammatical structures, a lot of examples and a lot of activities.
