*This is one of a series of posts about some of my favourite story books for Primary Language Learning* Following on from some ideas for Spanish books using colours, the books in this post look at numbers 1-10.

I’ve just come across this short video about the Spanish language via Pinterest. It explains how Spanish came to be, condensing 2000 years into 3 minutes and shows why Spanish is such an important world language. Well worth a watch, whether as a tool for promotion or persuasion or out of interest.

The Adidas advertisement featuring the Spanish ‘selección’ have the message El pasado no cuenta – Todo vuelve a empezar. The past doesn’t count. It’s all starting again. Which it is! And then they made another, with a similar message, but pointing out that La Furia Roja actually won in their away kit at the World […]
Another nod to Neil Jones today for introducing me to the lovely Pimpollos, Peru’s answer to the Hoobs. Cheery, friendly and with ‘karaoke subtitles’, I think a very useful series. On his blog, Neil has posted materials for using their song Las verduras. Great stuff! There are many more videos by Los Pimpollos and here […]
