La nueva tecnología en la clase de español…

We’re pleased that the devices ordered through Freedom Tech to aid teaching and learning in and beyond the classroom have now arrived. For those students and parents who have taken delivery of a device – and find themselves with time on their hands in the next two weeks – you may wish to visit the following websites that use emerging technologies to teach Spanish:

FREE BBC Languages site

FREE Spanish lessons online

Learn Spanish for FREE

FREE Spanish resources

There are many more out there, some are free, and some have Apps for language learning on the go….

All our Y7s have been given the task of researching a Spanish-speaking country and then recording and presenting at least five key facts about their chosen country. These could include:

  • population size
  • unit of currency
  • famous Spanish-speakers born there (e.g Shakira is Cuban)
  • national flag
  • famous national dishes (e.g. Mexico = nachos, enchiladas, fajitas)


Results of research to be brought on the prompt cards (provided) to the next lesson (Admiral = 12/07/17 and Skipper = 13/07/16)
