'Amazing – this has every aspect that you need to support weaker students, split into 5 self-contained sections. It can be set as cover work, home/holiday work or to reinforce class work. It relates to new spec and is teacher-friendly for marking (peer+teacher). Buy it!' B Carter, Head of MFL and ZigZag Education Customer
T'his is a very useful resource which would be great in our MFL department trying to improve the outcomes of the notorious borderline classes for whom reading in an MFL can be such a challenge.' J Ignacio Ermina, MFL Teacher and Examiner and Independent Reviewer
'Very clear, practical and with great scaffolding (...) The wide variety of topics covered and key point such as cognates and false friends have been proven over the years to be key in consolidating a pass or even accessing the upper grades.' S Mallo Juarez, Spanish Teacher and Independent Reviewer
What do teachers have to say about this resource? (7863)
'I liked it as I think it is logical and on the whole easy for students to build up techniques to answer the questions successfully. Weaker students often find listening so difficult and just give up and I think that this resource goes some way to combatting this.' G Smith, Head of Spanish and Ind. Reviewer
'This resource presents a variety of stimuli for the students to practice for the AQA GCSE Listening paper, stressing out those words and sounds that could be difficult for the students. Overall the resource is appropriate and stimulating.' S Gonzalez, Teacher and Independent Reviewer
