V Will, HoD and Customer

15 interesting, up-to-date articles, many linked to target-language culture, e.g. video games, birthday parties and sports; famous people, festivals and monuments. A range of texts from 150 to 350 words long, including postcards, forum posts, interviews and reports. A series of activities accompanies each text to ensure students get the most out of what they read: ‘find the vocab’ and comprehension questions, linked grammar exercises and writing tasks. Plus extension questions in the target language, and an opportunity to set targets to use newly learnt words and phrases in their own writing.

One of the best resources I have seen in ages

S Jones, Teacher and Peer Reviewer

A very useful resource to prepare pupils for the more challenging reading questions on the GCSE paper. Its real-life context is more meaningful and engaging than texts written specifically for textbook activities.
