  • 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.

A note from the author: "I've been using the worksheets myself in my teaching this term with a GCSE group whose listening was quite weak at the start of the year and I've been amazed at how successful the worksheets have been... Some students have made 4 GCSE grades of progress over the term. Win win!"
