CORTELE

Hello folks! Hope you are all having a magical Christmas and a lovely winter break.

My entry today is about using short films ‘cortos’ in Spanish / ELE lessons wherever you are in the world. Do you already use this tool as part of your teaching practice?  Would you like to give it a go and see if your students enjoy it and benefit from it?

This blog called CORTELE has lots of short films and clips you can embed and play in your Spanish lesson.  They are classified by levels so you can choose the best one for the right audience. For further guidance, underneath each clip you have a brief summary with the contents, skills and even a proposed lesson plan with activities to complete prior  to, during and after watching the film.

Here is one of the lovely film called ALMA (2009) created by the talented Rodrigo Blaas. Enjoy!

Mid-term assessment tasks

Hi folks,

It’s been a while since I last posted on this blog, my apologies! It has been a really intense first term back to school.

Today, I would like to share with you some assessment tasks great to use with your classes as a mid term task which will help you assess their progress between one assessment round and the next. While it is handy to just have a template and adapt to every year group focusing on the topics and grammar you have covered that term, I also recommend not to assess the same skill at a time with all your classes as you will drown with marking.  I would suggest that you do it on different weeks if you decide to assess ie. writing with all your classes and marking will be more manageable.

The template of the tasks was kindly shared by Neil Jones on his blog https://neiljones.org/
