What do teachers say about this resource? (9981)

The resource gives students the opportunity to practice exam style texts at a similar level of challenge on the topics that appear in the exam. Resources in this format and at this level of challenge are difficult to come by, making this a very valuable tool for teachers. The vocabulary used is at a very advanced level and gives pupils the opportunity to expand their comprehension skills and range of vocabulary. Overall it is a very well prepared resource which meets the need for A-Level students and teachers for more reading resources and will be of great value to teachers and students.

What do teachers say about this resource? (8486)

I really enjoyed reading the texts; they’re very illuminating about specific aspects of German-speaking culture and have clearly been written by a native speaker. It’s interesting and fun whilst also being mapped to the AS topics.
