As part of Cornerhouse’s ¡Viva! Spanish and Latin American Film Festival, we will be running two study mornings for Spanish school and college groups. Further information on the films will be published early 2015.


Spanish sessions will be led by Carmen Herrero, Head of Spanish at Manchester Metropolitan University and Ana Valbuena, Spanish Language Tutor at the Instituto Cervantes in Manchester.


Projector is a collaboration project between Routes into Languages NW and Cornerhouse Manchester. This is a year-round education programme, which uses film, moving image and contemporary art to enrich students’ learning and bring innovation to the classroom. Throughout the year we have a variety of MFL study sessions specially programmed to support GCSE students of French, German, Spanish and Urdu, all led by native language speakers.


Each of our study sessions use film as an exciting and accessible way to encourage students to use their language skills. Students will enjoy a specially selected film, screened in the target language with English subtitles. Sessions are supported by contextualising introductions, which provide information about the themes and characters of the film along with information about the film's director and place within film history and culture. Following the film, students complete language exercises based on the film using their new vocabulary.


Films are selected to complement GCSE specifications and provide excellent material for topic-based work and oral exam preparation.
