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.

What do teachers have to say about this resource? (6276)
'I like the variety of structures and vocabulary presented by the chosen texts in this resource. I can imagine they would create great opportunities for teachers to ask students to explain grammatical constructions and even idioms during lessons as well as modelling.' M Hawkins, German Teacher and Independent Reviewer
'An excellent resource with very good, current texts geared towards the new GCSE specification and accompanied by new exercises such as the translations from and into English. Both Foundation and Higher tier worksheets are pitched at the right level and I quite like the fact that there is also a medium level which can be used by both tiers. Students have the opportunity to practise at their own level which encourages them to become independent learners.'J I Ermina, MFL Teacher and Examiner and Independent Reviewer
