What do teachers have to say about this resource? (6551)
'Much needed structured support for students who struggle with listening skills. It concentrates on developing the skills needed rather than vocabulary practice as in all text books. Very clear recordings.' Debra Marks, Tutor and ZigZag Education Customer

'Fantastic – a lot to go through so very useful for extension. Why spend hours creating resources when it has been done [for you].' M Eames, Head of Languages and ZigZag Education Customer
'Very Clear, easy to use, well structured, different way to approach reading practice. It looks at skills for reading rather than just focussing on vocabulary. it is a timesaver for me, knowing the resources are challenging, but achievable.'

"I loved this resource. Honestly, I had certain reservations as there is a lot out there that claims to target foundation level students but they often just omit very high-grade vocabulary in vocabulary lists or don’t cover the subjunctive! This was very carefully tailored for foundation students." S Sweeney, Heach of MFL and Independent Reviewer
"This is a very good resource which I feel will appeal to many teachers. Students are well-supported throughout and there is no doubt that they will improve on many aspects of the target language thanks to this well thought out resource. I personally enjoyed it and I know my students will enjoy it too." S Dumond, French Teacher and Independent Reviewer
"A fantastic resource. It allows for differentiated teaching through the activities it provides (example answers / mark schemes) and also allows pupils to develop a real understanding and awareness of grammar needed - something that is sometimes forgotten in the rush and panic of an exam environment." K Seazell, Head of MFL and Independent Reviewer
"This resource matches the specification well, and covers all required aspects of the syllabus in more than sufficient depth for students to be able to write at length in the target language in the writing exam." B Phillips, Head of MFL and Independent Reviewer
