Whether your child is has been sent work to do at home, or is following a school time-table with their class teachers, I can offer expert 1-2-1 support and guidance and reassure students and parents that this time can be productive and rewarding. I am uploading a daily “work or art” for Key Stage 2 and 3 children to colour in and research the artist which will eventually create a beautiful Spanish or French (or both!) art gallery. I will post links to interactive language practice sites and my own resources which include my GCSE Spanish vocabulary Quizlet folders for Key Stage 4.

Here is the link to my AQA Spanish Quizlet folder.

Another great source for online language practice is Languages on Line.

  • Profesora Irvine Goes Global!

From my small home office in Bolton I will be teaching students of all ages and abilities as well as experienced teaching professionals in one of the world’s top international schools. My smiling face will be beamed into homes and classrooms in all these locations: Bolton, Bradford, Sheffield, Shropshire, Rawtenstall, Bermuda, Brighton, Chorley, Cumbria, Merseyside, London and Hong Kong!

My students and clients are a delight and I am confident that I am preparing them to be skilled and curious learners of language and culture. Thank you to everyone who has supported me.

  • Message to all

    It’s devastating news about the cancellation of all GCSE and A Level exams this year. I totally understand the need to close schools and colleges but these children have worked so hard and will not get the rewards they deserve. The wonderful children that I’ve been working with individually are all over-performing on their predicted and mock grades and I genuinely hope that this will be reflected in the final grade that they are rewarded.
    I’ll be continuing my Spanish & French lessons via Skype with my non-exam students, and adult learners, and am happy to provide continuity of education for those who find themselves at home without support and feedback.
    Take care everyone! 🇪🇸🇫🇷

     
  • GCSE Conferences

    keynote multipleI spent a day last week with 230 Year 10 and 11 girls at Bentley Wood High School in Harrow. A whole day of Spanish is a challenge for anyone and these girls were really involved and enthusiastic.

    The afternoon started with a questions and answers session and it was really encouraging to learn that the girls are thinking positively about their language options for the future and enjoying their Spanish.

    The day ran smoothly thanks to the support of a great team of Spanish teachers and the school technician! 

    I am available for in-school Spanish A Level and GCSE conferences and teacher workshops through https://www.keynoteeducational.co.uk/
