Very comprehensive coverage. Authentic listening materials. Lots of GCSE practice for students. C Humphries, German Teacher & Independent Reviewer
Brilliant learning structure to support and engage students who find listening a challenge:
- Extensive pre-listening activities prepare students and build their confidence
- Monologue listening activity provides a chance to ‘tune in’
- Dialogue listening activity practises listening skills in a natural context
- Post-listening writing or speaking activities consolidate learning and build on the topic, ensuring students feel well-prepared to tackle it in future.
Written by an experienced teacher who is also a native speaker, the activities are designed for use in class, cutting teacher preparation time and giving valuable listening support. Native speaker recordings build students’ pronunciation skills.
Excellent tool for teachers of German. A wide range of vocabulary, grammar points, questioning and task types. Will also provide students with a wealth of knowledge about the culture of Germany. S Bremner, MFL Teacher & Independent Reviewer
