  • 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? (6478)
'The resource guides both the teacher and the student through the book in a structured and methodical way, using a variety of question styles and presentation methods. I feel students of all abilities would benefit from using this resource as it offers a thorough analysis and gives much background information. There are also frequent opportunities for students to think creatively about their own response to the work, expressing and justifying opinions, as well as suggestions for independent research.' S Webster, MFL Teacher and Independent Reviewer
'The resource probably provides more than is needed to get a top grade at A Level French. It is the best "Getting to know" I have read and reviewed to date, better than many other similar study aids on the market. I wish I had had such a resource when I taught "Un sac de billes".' C Gaumet-Ducros, French Teacher and Examiner and Ind. Reviewer
