What do teachers say about this resource? (10069)

It is perfect as it covers all topics and major subtopics. I liked this resource and I find it very useful. It covers all topics of year 2, it contains more than one reading for each topic and it can be used for end of unit test

I have never found resources with ready made reading activities which can be used for end of term exams/ end of units tests ( they have marked questions with graded achieved)

This resources will help my students because we can use this as end of units tests, so they they can assess their progress and knowledge

This is an excellent resource as it can help with assessments and tests.
It has several reading for the same topics.
It can also be used as a starter in the lesson.
We can keep track of students progress.

I would definitely buy this pack.This is a great set of Reading Exam practice for A Level Year 2 Edexcel Italian specification. I love the fact that the author has included a variety of texts which perfectly match the new Italian A Level spec. Since there are currently no books/textbooks to teach the new Italian A-level spec, this resource pack bridges the gap.

What do teachers say about this resource? (8487)

I liked this resource very much and I think it is also very helpful in my lessons. I liked it because:
1) It covers all topics and major subtopics of year 1 programme
2) It contains several readings for the same theme
3) Format for Tests and Internal Exams

This will help my students as I will be using it as End of Units Test, so it will help tracking students progress and knowledge of the topic or theme. It also contains pictures to anticipate content of the reading text.

I have never found resources ready for tests and exams type activities. The format is ready for tests and End of Units or Term exams wtih clear answers sections and several readings for the same topic/ theme.

I would highly recommend this resource as it covers all topics and major sub topics of the year 1 programme.

Generally very impressed with the range, nature and quality of the texts […] and their accompanying questions, which require the selecting of four correct statements or six single multiple-choice options, followed by short, free format responses. I particularly like this resource because of its wide range of themes, which I found both relevant and stimulating and include practical, contemporary issues as well as cultural and historical aspects of Italian life and literary as well as factual works and surveys.

I am really impressed by this collection of texts. There are lots of opportunities to expand vocabulary with the help of the technical language. They offer the students a variety of structures and styles. I particularly like the authentic materials (my favourite is the text from Cuore, by De Amicis) and how the questions styles are very similar to what the students have to do in the Edexcel paper.
