What do teachers say about this resource? (8389)

This resource effectively presents the requirements of the AQA A level oral examination, providing excellent examples of how to respond to the card through vocabulary and grammar exercises. It will also greatly assist the students in researching and presenting their IRP.

S Fleet, French Teacher and Peer Reviewer

Its logical progression through the different stages of the oral will give pupils / teachers a feeling of being in control, knowing that they understand what will happen in the exam and what they have to do to get a good grade. It therefore inspires confidence.

What do teachers say about this resource? (7397)

This resource gives students the tools to feel confident about approaching the speaking examination, giving them the language they need and lots of practice talking about the sub-topics. The translation exercises, which always use vocabulary from the sub-topics, also give them more practice in translation and in writing accurately for the other papers, so there is an educational value beyond the single skill of speaking.
