What do teachers say about this resource? (9538)

A well-structured resource. The areas chosen to focus on are well chosen as the key areas that are needed to gain an A/A* at A Level. Would be very useful to higher ability pupils on the whole. Excellent listening activities in the style of exams and at an appropriate level of challenge which mirror what they face in the real exam.

What do teachers say about this resource? (9529)

It offers sound advice on how to improve the level of both spoken and written language along with good pointers to exam techniques. I like that it is targeted on improving performance in general as well as in exams and it does face most language issues full on in a bold fashion where some resources are sometimes apologetic about dealing squarely with sometimes difficult issues.
