The PoppieS Foundation 1-2-3 Pack will become available gradually once you enrol in the Course. Normally, once you have finished the Introductory Course, you get access to Foundation 1; the week after to Foundation 2, and finally, the week after to Foundation 3.

They can be done individually or in Combination and are what we consider the "Foundations" to prepare well for the Competitive Exam.

We recommend that you combine the 3 courses if you are preparing for Profesores Secundarias and the first 2 (Exam Part 1A & B) if you are preparing for EOI.

PoppieS' Foundation Courses


The first of the
full PoppieS Foundation 1-2-3 Pack, it combines with the other 2 in a seamless fashion. 
PoppieS Foundation 1 consists of 6 Modules where we focus on improving our essay-writing skills. We cover 25-26 topic contents dealing with Methodology, Language Learning Theories and Communicative Competences from the current 1993 list.
There are workbooks and assignments to help you understand the contents better and practise essay writing. Also, some video presentations of key contents. 
  • You can do the 3 courses separately, but we strongly recommend you do the full pack.
  •  If you are preparing Escuelas, you can do PoppieS Foundation 1+2 until further notice.

PoppieS' Foundation Courses


This is the second of the full Poppies Foundation 1-2-3 Pack and combines seamlessly with Foundation 1 & 3 (Topics & Syllabus).

PoppieS Foundation 2 also consists of 6 modules where we practise various listening activities, text analysis of different types —and connected to the topics and to aspects of the syllabus— and translations.  

To design the activities in this course we take into account past exam papers from various Autonomous Regions, the contents of the topics covered in PF1 and aspects we deem useful for PF3.

Besides, the course contains

    • Several quizzes to practice lexis, semantics and structural conversion.
    • 6 quizzes to help you with rhetorical and Stylistic issues which may come up in this part of the exam and includes various mock exams from past years. 
  • You can do this course separately, but we strongly recommend you do the full pack.
  •  If you are preparing Escuelas, you can do PoppieS Foundation 1+2 until further notice.

PoppieS' Foundation Courses


This is the third course of the POPPIES Foundation 1-2-3.

PoppieS Foundation 3 consists of 6 Modules, updated for the academic years 2021-2023, that seamlessly combine with the other two courses making up the full Foundation 1-2-3 Pack. Needless to say, it takes into account current legislation.

 We start with the key element in our syllabus, regardless of legislation: our students and their needs. 

Then, we move from how to structure our syllabi and units, through key documents & Competences, setting objectives & ELO, distributing the contents into the units that make up our syllabus, preparing the oral presentation, etc. in line with the assessment criteria and descriptors. 

We also look into some teaching ideas, the use of ICTs, how the syllabus combines with the topics in PF1, and tips and approaches to cater for all our students' needs.  To do this course you will also need our book Inglés Programación Didáctica- MAD Even though it was drafted taking RD 1105/2014 as its basis, Syllabus design in English, when done properly, can easily adapt to changes. The book covers some essential issues which, regardless of legislation, should be borne in mind for our teaching plan. 

You need to order it directly or get it from a bookshop, including Casa del Libro.

PoppieS' Foundation Courses


This is the third course of the POPPIES Foundation 1-2-3 SPECIALLY DESIGNED 4 EEOOII.

PoppieS Foundation 3-4 EOI  is a course which guides you through the design of your teaching plan and its units. This is still in Pilot Mode, so there will be changes as the course progresses.

 In principle, it consists of 6 Modules, updated for the academic years 2021-2023, that seamlessly combine with the other two courses making up the full Foundation 1-2-3 Pack. Needless to say, it takes into account current education legislation and, although it aims to cater for all Autonomous Regions, it currently focuses on Madrid and Galicia to start with.

As we draft the syllabus and design the units we practise giving the oral presentation of our rationale and units, etc. in line with the assessment criteria and descriptors. 

We also look into some teaching ideas, the use of ICTs, how the syllabus combines with the topics in PF1 & BBI, and tips and approaches to cater for all our students' needs.
