It provides good language for the students to use, there is a wealth of exercises for use as revision or in class and it also provides a useful set of notes for revision purposes.M  Birtchnell, Head of German and Independent Reviewer
"I am very impressed with this resource. It is far more pupil friendly than other resources I have found and used to teach this film in the past. It is very concise, to the point and relevant throughout. It contains a wealth of useful ideas and points for further development and elaboration." L Pedelty, Head of MFL and Independent Reviewer
Wonderful. It is a very detailed resource, very much tailored to the needs of the 6th form pupil and teacher. L  Whalley, Teacher and Independent Reviewer
I especially liked the focus on independent learning, which is something that I am always extremely keen to promote in my students... I was also really impressed by the specimen essays. I ask my students to work closely with the mark scheme and this would provide a perfect chance to peer assess and to allow them to see exactly what the examiner is looking for. G Bennett, Teacher and Independent Reviewer
Absolutely enhances learning through the range of activities and styles of texts. Good mixture of interviews, biographies, critics as well as focus on grammar.S Davidson, Teacher and Independent Reviewer
