A fun Spanish course in three levels for children aged 8-11 (CEFR levels A1-A2.1). The course aims to introduce children to Hispanic culture and to develop the four key skills through fun activities, comicbook stories, rhymes and a straightforward communicative approach. The course also offers cross-curricular content to diversify the lessons and to complement the broader curriculum.
Appealing characters present the language within a familiar context so that children are given the opportunity to use it in real-life situations right from the very beginning. Many activities are based on simple dialogues that children can memorize and re-use in other aspects of their daily life. The pronunciation sections present and practise particular sounds of the Spanish language via simple rhymes, again ideal for memorization. Each unit also presents a page of short informative texts related to an intercultural or interdisciplinary topic (CLIL / AICLE). Topics include: daily life around the world, safety, health and well-being, food and nutrition, animals and the natural world. This allows the children to enrich their vocabulary and widen their general knowledge, while review and self-evaluation sections provide the children with valuable information regarding their progress and helps them to identify and correct any learning difficulties.
Each level provides material for up to 90 lessons of between 45 and 60 minutes. The teacher's resources provide guidelines for extending or reducing the lessons as well as a DVD - The Story Musical - for each level of the course. This contains everything you need to stage a play for each level (Hansel & Gretel, Peter Pan, and the Jungle Book): scripts, musical accompaniments, stage scenery to project onto a screen or a wall, plus lots of video tutorials to help you create costumes, learn choreography and make stage props!
