Well pitched and provides ample, differentiated opportunities for students to practice their dictation skills at A Level... The inclusion of audio files for the dictation exercises is of great benefit as it allows the teacher to be of more use than just playing the examples! I also like the difficulty markings for each question... The value [in this resource] is the differentiated approach to teaching dictation skills and students being able to progress independently with audio tracks and answers provided. This provides a skills-based focus for students to improve their marks for this part of the paper.
