What do teachers say about this resource? (6276)

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.

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.
