I loved it. It's as if it were written by the exam board itself. The author is clearly very familiar with the specification, and has worked hard to find or create texts that are relevant to the topics required for the exam and mirror the style of exam questions that are found, especially the summary question which is a new style of question which is less easy to find practice on.

I thought this resource is fantastic for exam practice and ticked all the boxes as far as level, exam technique, vocabulary and content are concerned. This is perfect for practice just before the exam or as an end of topic assessment. It will save a lot of time looking for appropriate texts touching on those topics and aspects of French culture and society. Another good point is that the exercise [types] are identical to those of the new AS specification sample exam papers.

Very useful, clear to use and a time saver... The texts are at the right level of difficulty and questions mirror exam-type questions. Excellent practice for the forthcoming exam. It will save you time trolling through the internet for relevant and interesting [content].

[Would you purchase this resource?] Yes, absolutely. A very good resource; exercises match the style of the sample assessment material on the AQA website and I like the variety of topics.

L Jaillet, Teacher and Peer Reviewer

Very good. Great texts on various subjects that develop students thinking and understanding of French differently.

A Guichard, Tutor and Customer

Great practice paper with differentiation possible. Very well structured and very useful for independent learning. Mirrors perfectly the new spec.
