Summer Review!


Join my newsela class and practice reading leveled Spanish articles this summer! Browse through the levels until you find the right fit!

Here’s a summer reading club that you can join!

Here’s another website with lots of good reading resources!



Use to practice the material presented.

Move slowly through the chapters, doing the Practice Activities and listening to the Listening Activities. Remember that the Repaso del Capitulo is the vocabulary that you had to memorize. You’ll also want to do the Reading Skills and Puzzles. When you feel confident, you can do the Test Preparation activities.

SPAN 6 – jak 0001
INT SPAN – jbk 0001
ADV SPAN – jdk 0001

These codes take you to the home page for each textbook. From there, navigate to the current chapter for the relevant practice activities.

If you feel like you need more explanation of grammar than what’s offered on the “Repaso del Capitulo,” a quick Google search of the topic will offer lots of resources.

I recommend and for easy to understand explanations.

Here is the link to the BBC’s 22 episode Spanish learning program, Mi Vida Loca. Work your way through the episodes to practice!


The web site Quizlet has more vocabulary resources than you’ll know what to do with. Search by topic or even by Realidades chapters to practice and improve your vocab over the summer!

To convince an MS Spanish Club to choose a trip to your country.  As such, your speech should be comprehensible, engaging and natural-sounding.  Your trip should be fun, interesting and feasible.  It needs to combine fun activities, cultural activities and a bit of learning (history, language study, etc).  The students have 2 weeks to travel door-to-door.
