Learning lots of sentences for a speaking or writing test Sometimes people struggle to prepare and revise for a speaking or writing test because they don’t know how to learn lots of sentences or they don’t even try in the first place. This class is going to give you ideas for how to ace your speaking and writing tests. It is all about the preparation…….
Imagine you have been asked to put together a 30 second presentation about yourself. What would you do? First of all you would need to plan out what you wanted to say of course. You would do this by thinking about what Spanish you know already (rather than all the words you don’t know). You would use your vocabulary booklet, your exercise booklet and any other resources from your teacher. These would help you to plan what you want to say. Then you would need to start committing it to memory. To be at the stage where you can say a one minute presentation off by heart you need to put in time to learn it and this needs to be an active process. Learning doesn’t just happen like that. You are in charge on this one. You need to use the strategies that we have discussed so far. Then you need to make a cue card with notes of the what you want to say and the order you will say it in. More on this later….
Imagine this is the text you have prepared and are now at the stage of learning it, what are you going to do? Me llamo Juan y soy español. Vivo en Madrid, en España. Tengo 11 años y mi cumpleaños es el 5 de mayo. Tengo un hermano que se llama Carlos tiene 7 años. Tengo los ojos verdes y el pelo negro. Me gusta el rugby y el baloncesto. Odio ir de compras. Es aburrido.
1. First you need to make sure you know WHAT you are learning. Write what it means in English. Try to write just below the Spanish. This is also important to do so that you can ask friends/parents to help you learn. Me llamo Juan y soy español. Vivo en Madrid, en España. Tengo 11 años y mi cumpleaños es el 5 de mayo. Tengo un hermano que se llama Carlos tiene 7 años. Tengo los ojos verdes y el pelo negro. Me gusta el rugby y el baloncesto. Odio ir de compras. Es aburrido.
2. Now you are going to rewrite your text in Spanish but with just the first and last letter of each word. Me l---o J---n y s-y e------l. V--o en M-----d, en E-----a. T---o 11 a--s y mi c----s es el 5 de m--o. T---o un h-----o q-e se l----a C----s t----e 7 a--s. T---o l-s o--s v----s y el p--o n---o. Me g---a el r---y y el b----o. O--o ir de c----s. Es a------o.
3. Now you could do the ‘odds and evens’ activity again. Me _____ Juan _ soy ______. Vivo ___ Madrid, ___ España. _____ 11 _____ y __ cumpleaños __ el __ de _____. Tengo __ hermano ___ se _____ Carlos. _____ tiene __ años. ______ los ___ verdes _ el ____ negro. __ gusta __ rugby _ el _____. Odio __ de _______. Es _______.
4. Now try just having your English text in front of you to see if you can remember the Spanish. My name is Juan and I am Spanish. I live in Madrid, in Spain. I am 11 years old and my birthday is the 5 th May. I have a brother who is called Carlos is 7 years old. I have green eyes and black hair. I like rugby and basketball. I hate going shopping. It is boring
How do I know that I know it? By now you might be at the stage where you feel confident you know the Spanish. What does that mean in real terms? You should feel happy with the following : ü I can look at my English version of what I want to say and do not struggle to remember the Spanish. üI know how to pronounce the words üI know how to spell the words üI know if there any words/phrases that are slightly ‘unusual’ to me (for example: I am 11 years old is literally translated into ‘I have 11 years’ in Spanish. ) If you are aware you are more likely to remember it more accurately. If you cannot confidently say that you have achieved the above you need to go back and spend some more time on the learning stages. That is not a problem and you are not stupid! We all need different lengths of time.
