GCSE & A Level Lessons
Learn Spanish language & grammar for education
My experience as a student of foreign languages (French and English) has made me aware of the difficulty and stress that it provokes in the students, especially when they have to prepare for exams. But with professional help, everything becomes easier. Through entertaining activities, the students can enjoy the lessons while studying the language and its culture.
Exams are based on the four linguistic processes: speaking; writing; reading and listening. All these processes are adapted to current the specifications and assessment criteria of each school. I will target these four processes in my lessons:
During the preparation of this section, I expect the student to achieve confidence and fluency in his/her oral skills.
Firstly, I help the student to elaborate a question bank with all the questions that the examiner could use during the exam. Subsequently, I will help him/her understand and memorise all of these questions; trying, not just to recite the answers, but to understand what is being told in order to express themselves in a natural way. It will include and focus on the pronunciation and intonation of the Spanish language.
In this section, the students must demonstrate his/her writing and grammatical skills.
The student is shown how to make a plan in order to express all the ideas in a well-organised composition. I will encourage the student to use accurate grammatical structures with a wide vocabulary.
Reading and listening
It is very important that the reading and listening exam is carried out with speed as the student will have a limited time to make an answer. The student will need to practise this in order to achieve these skills.
My role as a teacher in this part of the exam is to give the student advice and tricks on how to manage their time and the speed of which they must answer. This is all with the intention that the student is able to face the exam with outstanding results.
The preparation for these exams will all be based on the students´ needs as well as on his/her weak points relating to the four processes.
Owing to my unforgettable experience living in the UK for 7 years, I am aware of the importance of knowing both the language and its culture. Therefore, my lessons are mainly based on the communicative method (socialising, travelling and living abroad) with the intention that the students are able to communicate (both orally and in writing) in any of the countries where Spanish is spoken.
- Are addressed to different levels, from beginners to advanced levels.
- Are tailored to the students´ needs and learning styles.
Every week I help my students improve their Spanish communication and make conversation with ease. Through my own methodology and my lesson structure, I see improvements in my students week after week.
In every lesson, I employ various activities and all kind of exercises that help students understand the language better and get them interact in all my classes. They learn the context in which Spanish is spoken and improve on topics such as:
- Pronunciation and pitch.
- Daily routines: restaurants; supermarkets; stations; hospitals; hotels, etc.
- Their vocabulary.
The comprehension and creation of basic and advanced sentences.
The lessons are one-hour long.
