So I only have 4 periods of my Advanced Higher Spanish class each week, due to it taking place at another school. The rest of the class who are at that school use a 5th period on a Friday to work on their specialist study, but I'm never there due to having another class so I seriously have no idea what it's about.

I watched a Spanish film and have been given some Spanish and English articles about it. I get that we need to write a portfolio or like 1200-1500 words on it and compare the film and articles (I think?) but I have no idea what to compare about them.

If anyone else is doing this, I would appreciate it if I could see some sample essay questions or just something to get started and I have to do all of this by myself. I haven't done anything on it yet, only finding out recently that it was worth 15% of the grade. Thanks.

Hi there!

I was in the exact same situation before Christmas and let me tell you, it's a MASSIVE weight off your shoulders once it's done.
I suppose I'll only be able to properly help if we've studied the same film, but if not, I can give you the gist of what I did in my essay in terms of structure?

For my folio, I watched Pan's Labyrinth (El Laberinto del Fauno) by Guillermo Del Toro, and focused on the way that fantasy represents the Spanish Civil War...

Let me know if you're studying that too and we can talk about it!

Hi, i know I'm pretty late to this topic but does anyone have any examples of how they wrote their essay for this portfolio? I'm pretty confused as to what is expected! I'm not doing that film, I'm doing one called Mar Adentro but just help on the structure would be nice!! Thanks
