What do teachers have to say about this resource? (8279)
'Very detailed, lengthy and worthy resource. Both text contents and vocabulary are relevant to the level targeted and challenging enough. The grammatical points are explained clearly. I like the very clear and detailed marking schemes with "accept" and "decline".' C Shepherd, French Teacher and Independent Reviewer
'A very helpful and well thought out resource. The grammatical progression is perfect. The explanations, clear and simple, will appeal to a generation not enamoured with grammar! There is an excellent choice of exercises to prepare for the translations in the examination.' C Hicks, Examiner and Ind. Reviewer
'This resource enhances learning by exposing the learner to a wealth of good structures and vocabulary relevant to the various topics and helps them consider the real difficulties associated with translating from one language to another. It is very useful for pointing out to the learner that languages do the same job but differently. In this latter way, its educational value is high.’ A Betts, Teacher, Former HoD and Ind. Reviewer
