Topical Podcasts for AS and A Level

Fabulous... I cannot wait to use this! R Bravo, Spanish Teacher & Independent Reviewer

Up-to-the-minute podcasts covering current events and contentious issues in target-language countries. Spoken by native speakers and accompanied by relevant activities, these contemporary recordings mix authentic cultural exposure with valuable language practice:

AS With built-in differentiation – podcasts are signposted as easy, medium or hard
A Level With extension ‘debate’ tasks – get students talking about a variety of thought-provoking issues
  • 12–13 topical podcasts provide a modern and engaging platform for listening practice – with interviews, reports, radio programmes, reviews, opinions and more!
  • Closely linked to topics from the 2016 AS and A Level specifications – the perfect companion to your teaching! Students learn relevant vocabulary and useful structures.
  • Vocabulary, comprehension, speaking and writing tasks help students get the most out of the podcasts
  • Use as whole-class listening exercises or upload to students’ MP3 players for independent study
  • Full transcripts double up as extra support or additional reading practice
  • Answers included for easy self-, peer- or teacher assessment

The perfect way to develop students’ skills for AO4 (cultural knowledge) and AO3 (quality of language) – both relevant to new AS and A Level exams!
