In case, like me, you are trying to set work for students remotely (we use Google Classroom), here are some ideas for a one off A level Spanish lesson on the reguetón star, Bad Bunny.
3. Read the interview + answer all the questions (worksheet attached).
Here are some resources on the Spanish A level topic of women in the workplace. The resources reflect the type of exercises students have to do in the AQA A level reading. If you click on the feminicidio.net heading you will be taken to the website as a prelude to the reading comprehension based on an interview with the founder of the website. You can also find an A level discussion card on the topic at the spanishandumbrellas website – click here.

With the Spanish Year 12s I am trying to develop summary skills. We have done a lot of work on synonyms and rewording + most recently this was in relation to eSports and online fraud. The resources I made are attached. I showed just part of the video and paused as I repeated what had been said. After the summary we worked on a gap fill (an exercise type used in the AQA exam) + I wanted to draw their attention to how certain expressions like “Al + infinitive” are often used. This should all make sense when you look at the resources. Hope they are of use + any comments would be welcome. I’m never sure whether people use the resources!

Just a quick post to share a listening comprehension task I made for my Year 12 Spanish group. We are using Google Classroom, so I was able to share the video with them that way. They found it quite challenging, but at the same time it is good for them to hear authentic Spanish.

Attached is a booklet listing all vocabulary for both EdExcel and AQA GCSE. This version is for Higher Level GCSE. It’s an immense thing, but we have copied it and asked students to keep it at home for revision / independent learning.

I am teaching the film VOLVER as part of the A level Spanish course. There are some great resources and I have relied on the ZigZag booklet as well as the Hodder Education book esp. as I had never taught this before. Attached are some resources I put together on the use of the colour red in the film. A number of the slides are adapted from other resources shared on blogs, etc. Thanks to all those people who share + do not charge money! The PowerPoint starts with a recap from my previous lesson on the theme of death, etc. The videos are adapted from ones I found on YouTube. They required a bit of editing down to make them useable. Hope the resources are of some use.
POWERPOINT: VOLVER EL ROJO WORKSHEETS: EL COLOR ROJO Almodóvar
I have been updating my resources in order to teach the topic of monarchy and dictatorship as part of the A level Spanish course. In doing so I came across a great worksheet on www.spectrumspanish.com titled Franco y el bikini. I was unaware of this story and the short film made a few years ago. I have added this into the attached PowerPoint with some background videos although you will have to go to the spectrumspanish website and buy the worksheet yourself. It’s worth it! Hopefully the other activities on the PowerPoint are self-explanatory although I’m going to work on improving the look of the presentation over the summer.
