Hi friends, Hi colleagues!!!
Can you say me how do you write in ENGLISH the structure of a class? I mean in Spanish are:
Inicio de la clase,
desarrollo de la clase y
final de la clase. 
Thank you very much for your answer.

End of Class

I don īt think we have "official" terms. I agree with paola about Beginning of the class and End of the class. I don īt think I would use "development of the class", though. That īs just a translation of "desarrollo".  I would probably say "the class session" or "the class proper".

  I will say, warm up, follow up and close up. The three parts of the class. Hope is useful!!!

I īm with Bruce in that we donīt really have any official names for the different portions of a class.  I usually use the same terms as for writing an essay or giving a speech:
Main point I
Main point II

Edit: the main points together could also be called "the body"

Starter, main part of the lesson, plenary.

I agree with Cunliffe. In UK teacher training, we are taught to do starter, main, plenary. The "main" is composed of several stages (exposition, practice, reinforcement, independent work, etc.) but you can just call it "main" on a lesson plan then sub-divide it into bullet points. You may have mini-plenaries as part of the main session to check that everyone has understood before you move on.

..And there are those wags who say to the class: Now that you īve had your starter and your main course, letīs see what I can whip up for your dessert. ī

Here, we have preparing the task, carrying the task and reflecting on what has been learned/transfer or learning.
