El Imperativo

Hay una buena explicación del imperativo aquí.  – spanishdict.com imperative review.

Puedes practicar un poco más aquí – Ejercicios del imperativo. 

Recuerda! la mejor forma de aprender los tiempos verbales en español es por la practica.

Leaving Certificate HL – The Opinion Piece

Sample Opinion Pieces & Notes.

I’ve attached a link to Google Drives with some sample Opinion Pieces that I’ve collected over the years for you to have a look at. I would not recommend learning them off as you don’t know if they’ll necessarily apply to the question your given. Rather look at the structure of the pieces, the vocab and phrases they use, take some ideas from them and write some sample plans.

Remember that when writing an opinion piece once you make your content relevant to the title you should be ok. It’s up to you to make it fit.

You’ll also find some vocabulary and hint sheets on what constitutes a good Opinion Piece though you have most of these already.

The following links will help you to revise for the Listening and Reading Comprehensions, The Grammar (verbs and tenses, prepositions etc.)

 

Listening Revision

1. Be Sure to listen at least once every day or two, even if it’s only for 5 minutes. Keep your ear tuned into Spanish.

2. Make use of ‘Vamos a Escuchar’, there are loads of exercises in there that we haven’t done yet.

Grammar Revision

For grammar you want to focus on the Present tense (regulars, irregulars, stem-changers, reflexives), the Past Tenses (Preterito Indefinido and the Imperfect) and the Future Tenses (Ir a + inf and the Simple Future).

Also DO NOT IGNORE the Tener Expressions.

http://www.spanishdict.com/grammar – Great for reviews and it has loads of practice quizzes under each topic.

http://www.studyspanish.com/tutorial.htm – Again very good for reviews and also has a few free practice quizzes.

http://www.trinity.edu/mstroud/grammar/ – Less reviews and more exercises here, browse the Verb Forms section in particular.
