Mucho cinema to speak of
In the first year of learning Spanish, the teacher needs to include some easy and interesting materials in the lessons. One of the best means of support in learning is the web page https://www.profedeele.es/ where students can practice new vocabulary and grammar.
Also, all students were quite enthusiastic about watching Spanish movies, which truly is a good way to dive into a new foreign language. One of the most interesting lessons for them was when they watched the movie “Tres metros sobre el cielo” (Three Steps Above Heaven), which is very popular in Spain; the teenagers said that they had learnt a lot of new words by watching it. Students had many positive comments, not only about the movie, but also about the accessibility and melodiousness of Spanish.
Savremena’s students enjoy friendly competitions and find apps such as Kahoot! and Socrative a solid source of motivation, which is quite handy when it comes to revising the previously covered units. Sometimes grammar can be “boring” for students, but with technology and these applications, this was not an issue.
