What do teachers have to say about this resource? (2494)
"It's enhanced the SoW we had and is easy for non-language specialists to use. It's classroom ready." K Greaves, English Teacher and Satisfied Customer
"Excellent! Provides clear advice on the subtle nature of grouping and matches the AQA B spec perfectly. It is well worth the money." C Foreman, Head of English and Satisfied Customer
'Overall, I found this resource to be fabulous. It covers more than I expected it would, offers detailed information and is precisely targeted towards the specification/examination. I am sure it will improve exam results wherever it is used!' A Harwood, English HoD, Independent Reviewer
'I liked the way the topics were covered with frameworks highlighted... I liked the way Theorists also were connected to Frameworks. Matches the new AQA B Language specification well as all aspects are covered. The Frameworks are explained as well as basic grammar reminders which students forget. It goes through requirements for the examination and gives essay examples which is brilliant.' S Fallon, English Teacher, Independent Reviewer
'A really good resource to elicit discussion and make students think about language in a completely different light. I like the way that the theorists' views are broken down into more simplistic ideas such as politeness, dominance etc. I also really liked the breakdown of how to approach the analysis of texts; either transcripts or articles etc. the detailed breakdown of sentence structure and grammar is really useful and the continuous quotations about the assumptions regarding gender are a great way to encourage the students to be more tentative in their responses.' S Lewis, English HoD, Independent Reviewer

"Staff in the department were very impressed with this resource. It is detailed and the worksheets can be used instantly. Perfect for experienced and new language teachers." K Greaves, English Teacher and Satisfied Customer
'Very good... a comprehensive overview [of CLA]. This resource would make me confident that students had more than just the basics to carry out a good investigation [of the topic]. The tasks at the end are most useful, as are the revision questions.'A Baiden, English Language Teacher, Independent Reviewer
'A really comprehensive resource. What is most useful is the way it is organised. Often texts on child acquisition are full of information and theorists but this pulls everything together well. the summary boxes are very user friendly and comparisons between the theorists and theories can be made and applied. The different interpretations of the stages by different theorists was good because it makes the students appreciate the vague and varied approach to an impure science: there are so many variables involved in the acquisition of language and this serves to remind the students (and the teacher) to be tentative in approaching a child language transcript.'S Lewis, English HoD, Independent Reviewer
'A good resource that will help teachers to feel confident that they have covered everything for this unit. A very useful resource, well worth having and ...pitched perfectly.'R Lodge, English HoD, Independent Reviewer
What do teachers have to say about this resource? (2823)
"Matches the specification perfectly - students and staff find it easy to use and you can use it in the classroom straightaway." K Greaves, English Teacher and Satisfied Customer
'I particularly thought the work on commentaries was valuable. There isn't much currently available and this is very helpful... Well presented, useful and accessible resource, offering help for both student and teacher. I like it very much and would definitely use it.' P Brind, English Language Teacher and Independent Reviewer
What do teachers have to say about this resource? (2462)
"The resource is very detailed and includes all of the required content. The students can also develop this further by conducting their own research." K Greaves, English Teacher and Satisfied Customer
'I particularly like this resource because it covers necessary elements of the specification without being unduly complex but also goes into sufficient detail to stimulate the brightest students.' S Alsop, Teacher and ZigZag Customer
'I thought the resource was very detailed. I particulaly liked the sections on phonetics and dialect - I thought it was clear and concise in its details. I also liked how excerpts had been taken from key theorists in the fields to give detailed information.' C Barker, English Teacher, Independent Reviewer
'Fantastic. The quality of the notes on the different areas of Language Change are really impressive and the exercises for students are extremely useful. I particularly like the lists of theorists and the summary of their findings. It is extremely helpful to have these in one place rather than researching over a number of different texts.' A Harwood, English HoD, Independent Reviewer
'It is very comprehensive and provides excellent self-accessment materials as well as lesson materials. Students will find the tasks engaging, manageable and developmental.' A Baiden, English Langauge Teacher, Independent Reviewer
What do teachers have to say about this resource? (2495)
'Very useful for both the preparation towards the investigation and the actual writing of one. The pupil planning sheets were excellent and will help pupils focus on areas of language that they can work on. A good resource.'R Loh, English Language Teacher, Independent Reviewer
'I thought it was excellent - a good balance of input and tasks. It gives clear guidance on the expectations of the coursework, as well as developing knowledge of frameworks. In fact, the section on things to look for within the frameworks is invaluable as often students really need a starting point to get them going. Well done on an excellent resource.'A Baiden, English Language Teacher, Independent Reviewer
