"Well done, a very well structured and put together resource!!! The tasks are typical of exams in terms of format so students know what to expect and can build on their skills. I really like how the resource incorporates specific vocabulary and some nice idioms (estan por las nubes). I find it incredibly useful that there is room for both peer and self assessment." -- R Bravo, Head of Spanish, Examiner and Ind. Reviewer
