GCSE Bitesize - Spanish

Cambridge IGCSE Spanish - Foreign Language (0530) This syllabus is designed for learners who are learning Spanish as a foreign language. The aim is to develop an ability to use the language effectively for practical communication. The course is based on the linked language skills of listening, reading, speaking and writing, and these are built on as learners progress through their studies. The syllabus also aims to offer insights into the culture and civilisation of countries where the language is spoken, thus encouraging positive attitudes towards language learning and towards speakers of foreign languages. Notice for UK schools: Only the 2015 syllabus is approved by Ofqual and funded in state schools. You can download one or more question papers for a previous session.

Radio Podcastellano Fundación del Español Urgente Smigin Is a Foreign Language Tool That Doesn’t Make You Sound Like A Tourist If you’ve ever tried to learn a foreign language, you probably know that most existing methods focus on aspects of the language that aren’t very helpful in everyday life. For example, newcomers to a language are often first taught the names of animals or colors, words that aren’t normally applicable to the common traveler. Smigin aims to fix this problem with its app that allows travelers to build and hear common phrases spoken by a native speaker. Smigin today released a total overhaul which for the first time introduces a monetization strategy for the year-old company. The cafe section will be free in all languages, and users can pay $4.99 to unlock all additional categories for a specific language. One thing unique about Smigin is that users can only create phrases incorporating the infinitive form of verbs. For example, you can use the app to say “I have to eat” or “I need to eat”, but not phrases like “she is eating right now”.
