Pre-order Items

Pre-order resources will either have a single dispatch date or a date range. Where there is a date range:
  • The earlier date is the best-case scenario – the date by which we aim to dispatch the resource to you, if the resource sails through quality and similar checks.
  • The later date is given to indicate the latest date by which you should expect the resource to be dispatched.

These dispatch dates may occasionally be moved back, in which case we will notify you. Conversely, publications are often delivered earlier than the dates shown.

For more information, and to see the full list of pre-order items for your subject, see the Future Publication Dates

Each 180–500 word text is accompanied by a list of tricky vocab with English translations and is followed by a page of exercises:
  • Comprehension questions in French and English
  • Grammar exercises linked to the topic
  • Sentences to translate, selected from the text
  • ‘Thinking’ Questions – great preparation for oral or written exams

“Very useful in that it covers a variety of contemporary topics (all in one place!)… It will save you HOURS of time creating texts and questions.” Elizabeth Welburn, French teacher, independent reviewer

“Good variety of exercises, good exam practice… The ‘Thinking Questions’ are good preparation for the oral and written exams… I think this is a very well prepared, useful resource.” Gillian Clegg, Languages teacher, independent reviewer

“I particularly like the variation in exercises which frequently revisit the basics of grammar but using adult content – this is not going to make students feel patronised... Ideal for homework tasks or class revision.” Carol Walles, Languages teacher, independent reviewer
