Using hand gestures in your Spanish Leaving Cert Oral

One of my favourite things to do with my students is talk about hand gestures in Spanish. The Spaniards use them all the time. It doesn’t feel normal to us to use them, and even less so when we are nervous in the exam. However, it does pay off, and it is lovely to see students using them in class or in the exams. Obviously, these gestures are all common ones, and not in any way rude!

These two videos are great for picking up the gestures. The Spanish spoken is quite clear, they give you the meaning of the gesture in English, and they show you the gesture. ¡Qué disfrutéis!
