A2 Level Spanish

Scheme of Work
This Scheme of Work for GCE Spanish A2 (Year 13) is based on 30 teaching weeks, with the remaining time to be used for examination techniques and tips, revision, practice, and the A2 examinations.
Exemplar activities given throughout are indicative only. Teachers should bear in mind the need to ensure that students not only gain knowledge and understanding but also that they develop the ability to evaluate and to express opinions in spoken and written form. Activities might include the following: Surveys; debates; reviews; reports; blogs; posters; brochures; grids; letters; emails; essay introductions; essay conclusions; full essays; and dialogues. Students should be given constant practice in the art of translation, with particular reference to translating from English into Spanish.
The following scheme of work introduces students to both a significant period in Spanish history as well as Literature and the Arts in preparation for them writing about one of the four aspects of the Research based essay element of Unit 4. The year is also then divided into the study of a chosen work of Literature (this could be a film or novel) and contemporary issues which could be areas for development in either Unit 3 or Unit 4. Students are given the choice to research their own topic for Unit 4 if they so wish.

Throughout Term 1 of Year 13, teachers should work with students on the following:

• Revision of structures and vocabulary learned at AS

• Further development of grammar, syntax and lexis at an advanced level

• Selection of topics for presentation in Unit 3 and for research in Unit 4

• Ongoing development of the skills of analysis and argument

• Practice in writing discursive and creative essays

• Practice in translating from and to the target language, with special emphasis on the latter

• Continuing to build up a bank of useful phrases and idioms

• Ongoing development of the skills of analysis and argument

• Encourage and insist on the use of the target language in class (with the possible exception of grammar classes)

APPENDIX – Exam questions to date
Translation – Specimen
When I was young I used to spend the summer holidays with my family here in England. I didn´t enjoy them. I got bored quickly and the weather was often cold. If we´d been better off we could at least have gone to a country with a warmer climate. Since I got a job everything has changed. Three months ago I flew to Peru with some friends and we went up the mountains to Cuzco, the old Inca capital. What a wonderful experience! I intend to return whenever I can.
Translation – June 2010
I shall never forget my first experience of work in Spain. I had just finished my exams when I received a letter from my uncle who has lived in Spain for five years. He was inviting me to spend the summer with him. If I had been given permission to leave three weeks earlier, I would have been able to take a cheap flight. However, I travelled by coach and then spent five weeks working in my uncle’s business. I hope it may be possible to return next year.
Translation – June 2011
When I was young I’d often dream of travelling to faraway countries. Last year my dream became reality since I have just spent nine months working at a school in South America. I could not have imagined the poverty and suffering that I met. I had only been working a few weeks when I realised that these children were the fortunate ones, rescued from the streets. When I have finished my studies I hope to go back and see the friends I knew.
