Learn Spanish with Luis y Sofía is a story-based approach to teaching Spanish at Key Stage 2. It comprises of two stages: Part 1 for Years 3–4 (7–9 year olds) and Part 2 for Years 5–6 (9–11 year olds). As well as a collection of story / reading books, specially written entirely in Spanish, this scheme will provide you with a wealth of creative teaching ideas to ensure complete coverage of the Foreign Language Programmes of Study in the September 2014 National Curriculum.
Each of the 28 units (14 per stage) is based around a story featuring a young brother and sister (Luis & Sofía), their friends and their family. The stories are topic-based and introduce vocabulary and language structures relating to the topic, through simple Spanish sentences.
