School routine For this unit the main skill I focused on was the speaking. As a first task, I wanted the students to gain the confidence they needed to produce language by stressing on the skill they fear most on the easiest topic to enhance the positivity towards languages and the forward thinking they needed in order to carry out the course and to see the importance of languages in the world of today.
Vocabulary I use the following slides to introduce/ remind the students of the vocabulary I then do a lot of repetition activities Then I make students practise the vocabulary in pairs Finally I use the slide show to test students’ memory and correct the pronunciation
The time I used ‘Bob the clock’ (as the students called it) to remind them of the way telling the time works. I stressed on the ‘y’ and ‘menos’ factor. I showed them the common error of: -Confusion between ‘cuatro’ and ‘cuarto’ -Similarity between ‘cuarto’ in Spanish and ‘quarter to’ in English
12 6 93 1 2 4 57 8 10 11 Son las…… y media ¿Qué hora es?
A few more words This Clock worksheet was created for pupils to revise the vocabulary they learnt in previous years. I used the slide on the interactive white board with the ‘Active studio2’ program for students to fill in their answers as we go along.
12 6 93 1 2 4 57 8 10 11 Son las … y media ¿Qué hora es? y cuarto y cinco y diez y veinte y veinticinco menos veinticinco menos veinte menos cuarto menos diez menos cinco
Writing A worksheet to practise the writing skill
Listening I made the students practise their listening skill by getting them used to the pronunciation of words by getting help from the Spanish assistant
Listening Listening exercise: 1)La chica se llama….La chica se llama…. 2)El colegio es…El colegio es… 3)Es un colegio…Es un colegio… 4)Las clases empiezan…Las clases empiezan… 5)Hay…clasesHay…clases 6)Ana prefiere…Ana prefiere…
Speaking As the students are to practise their questions prior to the exams, the Spanish assistant recorded their 6 questions and answers using a microphone and the program called Audacity, and I downloaded the recording on their MP3 player, so that they could listen to it at any time, which keeping their ‘street cred’ intact.
