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.

Topical Articles for Gifted & Talented

Available for GCSE French, German and Spanish

15 interesting, up-to-date articles, many linked to target-language culture, e.g. video games, birthday parties and sports; famous people, festivals and monuments. A range of texts from 150 to 400 words long, including postcards, forum posts, interviews and reports.

A series of activities accompanies each text to ensure students get the most out of what they read: ‘find the vocab’ and comprehension questions, linked grammar exercises and writing tasks. Plus extension questions for either writing or speaking in the target language.

  • Great as ready-made cover or homework
  • Ideal for extension and independent learning
  • Answers included
One of the best resources I have seen in ages... It matches the topics well but students won't feel like they are doing exam practice S Jones, German Teacher & Independent Reviewer
I like the way in which it encourages students not only to understand the text to answer questions, but also as a way of expanding their own vocabulary by noting down new words and phrases which they have learnt. K Joel, French Teacher & Independent Reviewer

What do teachers have to say about this resource? (4426)
"Good preparation and training for dealing with unfamiliar and difficult vocabulary... Excellent preparation for Higher Reading exam." E Green, Head of French and ZigZag Customer
"Helps the students to become more independent learners...An ideal resource for them to use independently...Starts to prepare higher ability candidates for AS level...Interesting, relevant and up to date articles that interest and motivate the pupils to work independently...I would purchase this as extension activities to push my more able students." C Woodward, French Teacher & Independent Reviewer
"I really like the activities where the students are asked to pick out good words or phrase they could use in the future in a CA." E Sinot, Head of French & Independent Reviewer
"A very interesting and useful resource which gets better and better as it goes on! Combining receptive and productive skills in the same resource is excellent...I like the way in which it encourages students not only to understand the text to answer questions, but also as a way of expanding their own vocabulary by noting down new words and phrases which they have learnt...It provides students with a useful model of language learning - they are being encouraged to see reading as a way to improve their own speaking and writing rather than just answering questions to get marks. Many of the grammatical structures which I would routinely suggest to higher level students as ways of improving their work come up in the texts." K Joel, Head of MFL & Independent Reviewer
What do teachers have to say about this resource? (4501)
"The language used has an authentic and up to date feel to it and the resource as a whole gives G & T pupils additional meat to get their teeth in to...offering stretch to more-able pupils without going over the same old ground." J Grimley, German Teacher & Independent Reviewer
"One of the best resources I have seen in ages"S Jones, Teacher and Independent Reviewer
What do teachers have to say about this resource? (5545)
'This is an outstanding resource that will most certainly enhance the learning of Gifted and Talented pupils. The resource goes far beyond the GCSE vocabulary and already prepares pupils for AS or A Level . The texts are challenging and will certainly get high-achieving pupils thinking - most resources for GCSE are far too easy. The exercises enable pupils to understand the texts and expose them to some very useful language. I would definitely used this resource in my own lessons to take pupils to the next level.'F Reichmann, German Teacher and Independent Reviewer
"I think this resource is absolutely fantastic and would be a life saver for any teacher trying to cater for G&T students in a mixed ability class! I love the up-to-date nature of each of the texts, section 3 for each article is brilliant and really tackles the higher level structures for GCSE and I particularly like the fact that the articles offer a range of text types, e.g. letter, chatroom conversation etc." S Byrne, MFL Teacher and Independent Reviewer
"This is a great resource with a wide range of reading materials and topics. The exercises are varied and interesting, with appropriate extension tasks." S Bridge, MFL Teacher and Independent Reviewer
What do teachers have to say about this resource? (5288)
"Altogether, a very good resource for higher level students at GCSE."
"I particularly like this resource due to the fact that each text is written from a teenager's point of view. All in all a very good resource to promote independent learning." S Mallo Juarez, Spanish Teacher and Independent Reviewer
