Some GCSE SPANISH translation resources...

The resources in this post were created based on texts taken from old GCSE Spanish papers, and which featured in a booklet uploaded to the Secondary MFL Matters Facebook group by Kate Jones. Here they are presented in the same order that they appear in Kate's booklet.

Here's a link to the full article, from which an extract was taken for the resources below: http://www.bbc.co.uk/mundo/noticias/2014/12/141210_trending_selfie_2014_gtg

Here are those 11 pdfs (in no particular order):

La crisis y el consumo navideño en España


The pdfs below were printed from this resource on textivate: www.textivate.com/menu-rhhjn1

The resource in the above link contains about 30 interactive exercises all based on the one text.

The text is about the effect of the crisis on consumers in Spain, and it was taken from this article on the Eroski Consumer website - revista.consumer.es/web/es/20131201/economia_domestica/77602.php - which goes on to give consumers ideas for spending less at Christmas.

The worksheets below were printed using Google Chrome's 'save as pdf' feature (via the 'Print worksheet' button on the textivate screens.) This blog post talks more about worksheet printing on textivate.
