What do teachers say about this resource? (6192)

Saves hours of work for teachers and provides valuable practice for students, improving their reading skills and vocabulary. It is also linked very clearly to the new GCSE topics which I really like!

Developing effective reading skills is incredibly important at GCSE and this seems to be overlooked by major textbooks who seem to focus more on speaking and writing tasks. I think the difficulty level of the resource is pretty spot on. I liked the variety of the comprehension tasks for each text. Including translation tasks is essential for the new GCSE specs and these were done well. The topics covered were both relevant and interesting.
