As well we have been working on some grammar that is helping us been even better at this foreign language: how to use and conjugate the irregular present of verbs, the differences between ser/estar in Spanish…

We are currently carrying on a project to learn the parts of a house and the furniture we can find in each room:

And we will be reviewing content on the following weeks. We will keep you posted!

In SAL 4th and 5th Grade we are learning the past tenses in Spanish!

First, we compared objects that we use now and how they were in past.For example, mobile phones:




Now, we are creating a folder with regular and irregular verbs and also we are having fun by playing the game LA OCA because they are  using the new verbs and the new tenses!


¿Qué me gusta? ¿Qué no me gusta?

Written by Maria Angeles Salvat. Posted in Kindergarten SAL

In SAL Kinder and 1st Grade we studied food and activities we liked and we don’t like.

First, we created a puppet with the structure Me gusta (I like…) and No me gusta (I don’t like). Then, we introduced activities that we can do in our free time. With the puppet they have to decide with activity they like and which one don’t.

After that, through a song we reviewed the food and the structure Me gusta and No me gusta.

Finally, in groups they create a poster with the things they like and they don’t like.


Interactive Museum: Our Heroes

Written by Núria Araguas. Posted in 4th-5th Grade Advanced SAL, 4th-5th Grade Beginner SAL, 4th-5th Grade Intermediate SAL, SAL

Last Friday was a really special day for our 4th and 5th grade SAL students: their interactive museum about personal super heroes was inaugurated! After all the hard work they have put into this project, they were really happy to present it to their classroom peers and families. They have completed a long process before this special opening. First, they have chosen someone, who they admired  or was meaningful in their lives. Then they have started writing about these characters explaining about their physical appearance, their lives, their personalities … After having written this text, they have practiced their oral skills in front of the class. Since the final objective of the project was to create an interactive museum, we have recorded their presentations and have designed a portrait about their heroes. Once that has been done, they have created a logo that, with the aid of an app called ” Aurasma “, would trigger the video they have linked to the portrait.

They were really excited to present their museum to our visitors, thank you so much for coming!

Augmented reality in Spanish classes!

Written by Anna Teixido Sole. Posted in 4th Grade, 4th-5th Grade Intermediate SAL, 5th Grade, SAL

SAL students have been elaborating their master pieces for their own museum!

We have been working on the parts of the body and physical descriptions by learning some vocabulary and grammar structures we have to use when doing so. For this project, we have been using augmented reality by using an application called “Aurasma”. To elaborate our project, we have picked a person we consider to be our hero and we have written about him in terms of physical appearance. We have also make a portrait of that person and proved that we are truly artists! Finally, we have record ourselves talking about that person and created our own logo so that when we place an iPad in front of it, you can see the recording.

We are very excited to share the result with all of you so be aware for news coming your way related to the museum “opening”!

On the following weeks, we will be working on irregular and reflexive verbs, we will go through the use of imperative and will also learn about the use of pronouns in Spanish. In terms of vocabulary, we will talk about clothes, the parts of a house and habits.
