The following topics are covered in the grinds:

  • Grammar
  • Reading Comprehensions (exam techniques & content)
  • Oral Exam Preparation topic by topic & Role-plays
  • Opinion Piece (structure, plans, vocabulary & sample essays)
  • Dialogue Construction (repetitive structures, vocabulary & tenses)
  • Diary Entry & Notes

Katie will dedicate significant time to preparing for the Leaving Cert Spanish Oral Examination. This preparation includes:

  • Free mock oral examinations during the year, one taking place before Christmas and one after. Students will receive a feedback sheet afterwards.
