AQA Spanish IRP Topic Help!!

Does anyone know if you can focus your IRP topic on South America rather than Spain - I was thinking of looking at the Chicano movement but am not sure if this is allowed
Yes you can talk about South America as long as they're a Spanish speaking country you're good- I'd recommend asking your teacher just to double check.

If you need any more help with your IRP I'd be more than happy to offer some assistance- I did my IRP on the Islamic Golden Age in Spain :smile:

Hey is the Spanish IRP supposed to be two presentations (one on your summary and one more in depth one) or just one

So the initial presentation is two minutes- think of it as a brief introduction into your IRP

You'll then have ten minutes to discuss what you've researched for your IRP with your teacher who will ask you a range of questions- you can prepare for this because before you sit the exam you'll have to fill in a form for the IRP with a list of 9 topics max of things you would like to talk about.

I'll attach this exact form below so you can see exactly what I'm talking about: https://filestore.aqa.org.uk/admin/crf_pdf/AQA-MFL-A-CRF-22.PDF
Hope this helps :smile:

Yes.
It was 2 years ago now but I used about 6-7 different sources.

Mainly just running it through my teachers and classmates. Also timing myself to make sure I didn't go over the limit

sorry i'm hardly on here anymore, hence the late reply

for el arte i talked about islamic influence in art, so architecture mainly through la mezquita-catedral de cordoba. the use of geometric shapes and how it's a main feature in islamic art. the mezquita-catedral de cordoba is called as such because after the end of islamic rule in the 15th century (i think??), christian influence came in and they converted half of the original mosque into a cathedral. they really liked the orignal architecture and didn't want to completely remove it. just thought it was interesting.

for la lengua i mainly talked about arabic influence into the spanish language, a lot of words are borrowed from arabic such as azucar (sugar), aceite (oil) etc

i'll try and see if i can find the presentaiton i used but it was 2 years ago now so idk if i still have it.
hi, sorry for the late reply.

ngl my sources were a bit dubious but i used wikipedia to find sources that they used (in spanish ofc) and then when i had to submit my irp for aqa, i listed 3-4 main sources as website links. i don't remember needing to do any other citations
