What do teachers have to say about this resource? (8539)
'A very good, up-to-date resource. The range of exercises and level of language are excellent for A level students. The students are stretched in all the skills; the TV and film excerpts are challenging, but the range of subject matter should be of real interest to all. The resource will demand high-level language skills, as well as a lot of individual thought and commitment. The range of tasks is well suited to this level – an interesting mixture, which should stretch the student.' R Mays, Retired Head of German and Independent Reviewer
‘It is a brilliant resource covering a variety of skills for different exam boards and it would be worth the investment for both experienced teachers who know lots about the background of the political life in Germany and for teachers who perhaps are not as interested in politics but obviously have to teach the topic.’ L Dunato-Davis, German Teacher, Examiner and Ind. Reviewer.
