What do teachers say about this resource? (7392)

'A student mastering the content in this resource would have a strong foundation for A Level Language. It reviews content from GCSE and by explicitly referring to known concepts, builds towards the new - it delivers on its promise!' A Baiden, Teacher and Independent Reviewer

'It explicitly covers all aspects of the terminology that students will have encountered at GCSE but builds upon this knowledge to ensure continuity with progressively challenging activities. It will greatly assist students in the transition phase from GCSE to A Level.' - L Loxton, Independent Reviewer

'What a great idea... This resource is an excellent way of developing linguistic analysis at the end of GCSE and the texts provided would also be useful unseens at GCSE level for revision, as well as extending the higher ability.' - P Town, Teacher and Independent Reviewer
