Elena Salas Ramirez will discuss the new GCSE Spanish exam, most specifically the Edexcel one, and will also discuss the other exam boards and their requirements for achieving each grade. She will cover the four skills with a focus on the speaking exam requirements.
Prior to the presentation, attendees are welcome to join the committee for lunch (at their own expense) at the Wig & Mitre.
Elena Salas Ramirez
Elena qualified as a teacher and translator in Granada, Spain, and has been working as a linguist in the UK since 2006, when she joined a Lincolnshire school as a language assistant. She was then promoted to classroom teacher and two years later took a break from mainstream education to run her own translation and tuition business. Amongst her assignments, we can highlight her collaboration as a development editor for the BBC talk Spanish series latest volume “Talking the Talk” and working with the City of York Council to deliver life-long adult education. At present, she is a Spanish teacher at Dixons Trinity Academy in Bradford and runs her business on a part-time basis only. She is also an examiner for Edexcel for the new Spanish GCSE specification, on which she will be giving a talk.
