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.

Getting to Know... Eric-Emmanuel Schmitt

Ready-to-use research tasks, worksheets, background information and practice exam questions. Students will be fully clued-up on three of Schmitt’s short stories (Odette Toulemonde, Le plus beau livre du monde and Le faux) in preparation for the speaking and writing exams. The logical structure provides the perfect balance between independent and class work.

Matches requirements for:
AQA Cultural Topics
  • For each short story:
    • a ‘before’ section introducing the context and key ideas
    • a detailed walk-through of the text
  • Special analysis section draws the three texts together, helping students to interpret the stories and make links between them.
  • Activities include: comprehension questions, translation, grammar and language. By studying grammar and vocabulary in the context of the novel, students develop language skills directly relevant to the exam.
    • Exam-style essay and oral questions provide perfect exam preparation.
