help - learning Spanish over the school holidays to teach it in September!

Discussion in 'Modern foreign languages' started by Crista, Jul 16, 2011.

  1. Hello Everyone,
    I have Y7 & Y8 Spanish on my timetable for next year - not too bad however I don't know any Spanish!!
    Clearly my 6 week hols. are going to be spent learning this so I can actually teach it - my request is does anyone know of any decent Spanish resources that could help me other than the textbooks and workbooks the students will use?!
    No chance of being able to go to Spain for the summer...though I do have a smartphone so have already downloaded some apps....
    Thanks in advance
  2. Radiolingua 'Coffee Break Spanish' and 'Showtime Spanish' are well worth a look. http://radiolingua.com/shows/spanish/coffee-break-spanish/

    Also try mividaloca on the BBC languages site: http://www.bbc.co.uk/languages/spanish/mividaloca/

    Mucha suerte
  3. Out of interest why are you in this situation? Surely it would be better if these classes were taught a language that you do know than Spanish that you don't.
    I am not getting at you, just this situation. I have found myself having to teach German to beginners. I have an extremely rusty O Level in German, but my cultural understanding is zilch, having only ever spent about 3 days in Germany. My classes would have been so much better off being taught Spanish or French by me or German by a teacher who had proper subject knowledge.
