I particularly enjoyed the range of activities for the students to complete (...) The variety keeps pupils (and Teachers!) interested and on their toes (...) a well thought-out piece of publishing!
This resource is very nice to help bridge the gap between GCSE and A level. A lot of students do not like reading in German and this resource will change that. Great!

This is a very useful resource as it exposes students to the vocabulary and grammar elements from the 2016 exam specs. The story-line is very gripping and will keep students engaged and wanting to read more. The exercises are varied and pitched at the right level, so it will encourage students to work independently and give them confidence.
