Getting to Know... Un Secret

Suitable for:
  • AQA AS & A Level
  • WJEC A Level
Very thorough and well written. F Ashbourne, French Teacher and Independent Reviewer

Ready-to-use research tasks, worksheets, background information and practice exam questions ensure full understanding of Phillipe Grimbert’s prizewinning, autobiographical novel Un Secret. Students will get to know the book inside out and be fully prepared for the AS and A Level writing exams.

Written specifically for the 2016 specifications, the logical structure offers the perfect balance between guided classwork and independent research:

  • Before: Introductory tasks to prepare students – with specific focus on social and historical contexts and the nature of autobiographical writing.
  • During: Comprehensive chapter-by-chapter work-through to ensure thorough understanding. Students will consolidate their knowledge of the narrative through vocabulary, comprehension, translation, speaking and writing exercises.
    • Includes dedicated section on analysis of structure, characters and themes.
  • After: Useful essay phrases, exam-style practice questions, sample essays and marking activities to help students refine exam technique!
An excellent resource (...) Enhances learning in many different ways. Although it is very focused towards the A-level exam, I also feel that it allows students to appreciate the work in an enjoyable way, and to share their thoughts and opinions on the book. J Ermina, MFL Teacher and Examiner and Independent Reviewer
