The idea is simple. Students work in pairs and are given a sheet of paper with a topic at the top ie. Holidays and vocabulary from that topic below - this could be in English, the TL or a mixture both. Each pair have a different topic. Play some music (I highly recommend Kevin, Karla y LaBanda for Spanish. They do great covers of popular English songs - check out their YouTube channel). Students have to translate as many of the words as possible while the music is playing. When the music stops, they pass the sheet on to the next pair and gain another sheet with a different topic. It's a great way of identifying which topic areas they struggle on the most and it was nice to see my Year 11s so focused. The resources for this are at the end of this blog post, free to download.
