One for the whizz kids!

This GCSE Fast Track resource has been created to take highly capable languages students from scratch up to Higher tier level in 1 year, structured around just 35 tutor sessions. It covers the topics, vocabulary and grammar found in the AQA 2016 specification and beyond.

This comprehensive resource provides the core materials students will need, including helpful tips and recaps. Fun activities that get progressively more difficult engage and challenge students throughout!

A good resource for students working towards GCSE in 12 months, with or without a tutor. The material seems well researched and at a suitable level for the intended purpose.C Hicks, Examiner and Ind. Reviewer

I really liked the stages of learning, starting with the pre-learning tasks and then followed up with a consolidation homework. I also liked the suggestions for supporting websites and the tracker – allowing the pupil to take responsibility for their learning away from the lesson. The cultural element (at the start of the pack) sets the tone and places the learning into context – something especially relevant under the new GCSE format.K Seazell, Head of MFL and Ind. Reviewer
