What do teachers say about this resource? (7211)

This is an excellent resource and one that will be invaluable to teachers as they prepare to start teaching the new spec. I particularly liked the fact that every topic is covered as is every different question type - from "describe the photo" to extended writing.

C Brockenbrow, Teacher and Peer Reviewer

Well done, a brilliant resource which will save me hours in preparing articles and questions. Thanks for letting me review this resource! In general I would say that there are lots of stimulating activities based on modern articles which will interest students and on the whole, activities are pitched at the right level covering the new GCSE topics which they need to work on. Great for study in class or for homework or even as a revision pack pre-exam period.

What do teachers say about this resource? (9171)

EXCELLENT. I found it a very complete and detailed resource. From the point of view of an experienced native teacher of Spanish, I would love to use it in my class. The instructions are clear, it covers all the topics listed in the AQA GCSE Spanish Syllabus and the combination of topics on each worksheet is well-balanced. There are many worksheets to choose from which provides lots of practice, and they are designed in such a way as to reflect the real cards in the oral examination, thus the students are familiar with the format and it makes the examination a little less daunting for them. It is a very versatile resource in its use: it can be used for pupil-pupil or teacher-pupil interaction.

I Menendez-Fombona, Teacher and Peer Reviewer

Very thoughtfully designed and in line with the new syllabus. I would use it without hesitation.

I Shaw, Teacher and Peer Reviewer

The strength of this resource is most definitely its attention to detail – with all exam question types and topics being covered thoroughly at both higher and foundation tier. I like the idea of the marking grid available to students which can be monitored frequently to check on progress. I would definitely buy this resource for my school.

C Brockenbrow, Teacher and Peer Reviewer

Reduces teacher workload by placing the focus purely on the student. As there is a logical flow and it follows the same format, it would be easy for students to get on with the learning straight away. Great resource, I bet it will be very popular, so well done!

J Ermina, Teacher and Peer Reviewer

What do teachers say about this resource? (6594)

I think this is an excellent resource that every teacher will want to have! A very well thought-out resource with lots of different listening activities catering for all capacities: from foundation to Gifted and Talented, plus it complies with the new specification, as it includes for example literary texts.

J Ermina, Teacher, Examiner and Peer Reviewer

Excellent resource as it allows us to test the students for each topic that we study as we do not follow the textbook order. It has got Higher/Foundation activities, which allows us to differentiate with in the lesson. You can write on it, highlight it and properly use it. It will help us to prepare students for the tests.

J Contreras Ramis, Teacher and Customer

If AQA produced this themselves the materials couldn't be more exam-focussed. I will buy it as soon as it becomes available and will tell my other Spanish colleagues to do so too. I love the fact that the resources are organised by topic, so that you can just find a worksheet on what you are currently teaching, rather than having to go through sample exam papers looking for resources, which is very time consuming. I also really like the fact that the activities are differentiated which means that the pack is great for all students (foundation and higher) unlike many of the resources which I have seen so far. As a department with a limited budget, this really appeals to me.

G Smith, HoD and Peer Reviewer

It is great! It is a very useful resource covering all areas of the listening exam. I feel that it has really taken on board the new specification, with the new types of questions and new requirements in terms of target language.

F Marriott, HoD and Peer Reviewer

Very clear and well differentiated practice for an area of curriculum that is often insufficiently covered in textbooks.

D Marks, Teacher and Customer

What do teachers say about this resource? (6555)

Excellent coverage of the new specification. It is clearly laid out and very easy to access to practice particular areas of the specification. It integrates coverage with differentiated practice.

D Marks, Teacher and Customer

I think this resource is very useful and enriching. It's very organised and well-focused.

L Grazia, Spanish Teacher and Independent Reviewer

I think this is an excellent resource that every teacher will want to have! The differentiated aspect of the resource is a great idea. (...) There is also a clear progression of difficulty which the students can be talked through as they are developing their own linguistic skills during the course.

N Booth, HoD and Peer Reviewer

Very useful! Very clear instructions and tasks. The tasks match exam requirements. There is a range of exercises which are differentiated. One pack for the class only is needed!

M Watts, HoD and Customer

This gives well needed practice for all students no matter what their level. I love the extension exercises in section 5 for the G&T students, with for example literarature texts, like the one on El Lazarillo de Tormes on page 7 and the Higher tier exercises too. The foundation students worksheets are geared well to Foundation level both in easy and medium foundation and the Higher ones push the Higher candidates considerably while the G and T prepare them for AS as the new specification will feature literature too.
