What do teachers have to say about this resource? (3800)
Every MFL dept should have a copy of this. — L White, Head of MFL at Moorside High and ZigZag Customer
"This is a fabulous resource with really useful sample tasks and an excellent step by step guide to gaining the top grades at GCSE... an extremely valuable resource, the teacher can choose how much help to give pupils during stage one of preparation. The resource matches the AQA syllabus completely and every one of the sample questions could be used as a real assessment task. It will save teachers a great deal of preparation."M Bennett, HoD and Independent Reviewer
"The resource is well-suited to the demands of the new controlled speaking assessments and I feel that the variety of tasks reflect situations that are appealing and more useful to students than previous style of role-play scenarios."S Darnell, MFL Teacher and Independent Reviewer
What do teachers have to say about this resource? (3889)
Perfect! Every MFL Dept should have a copy. Writing is a huge part of the exam today and is one of the few elements that we as teachers still have some control over. &mdash L&mbsp;White, Head of MFL at Moorside High and ZigZag Customer
"I feel that the resource can be used on different levels: to give teachers some ready-made assessments, to show students what they need to do for a grade C and for a higher grade, to help student familiarise themselves with the mark scheme (they could mark some of the typical answers). As a result this enhances learning. In addition, the key expressions given to students for the planning stage are also useful for the other skills."C Dissel, French Teacher and Independent Reviewer
"This is an essential accompaniment to the AQA course. There are clear pointers on how to improve students' grades and useful guidelines for teachers...This is certainly a great timesaver and a brilliantly organised resource that will be a huge benefit to those of us teaching the new syllabus." — M Bennett, Head of MFL at Cokethorpe School and Independent Reviewer
