Great resource! Wonderful layout! It is divided into chapters and well structured. Available to print as an A5 booklet to read, there are also recordings of each chapter at both a ‘slow’ and ‘regular’ speed for tailored listening practice for both Lower ability and higher ability students. As soon as this becomes available I will be purchasing a copy!
What do teachers say about this resource? (9986)
I liked the way in which the resource communicates the real enthusiasm that the two girls have for using the foreign language in a variety of situations. The whole resource sends out the message that using foreign languages is a life-enhancer rather than a laborious and unnecessary process. The resource invites its readers to dip into the cultures of Germany, Austria and Switzerland. New specifications are now emphasising the importance of appreciating the cultural contexts of language learning, rather than learning a country’s language in splendid isolation. There are regular references to the lifestyles of the three German-speaking countries, both in the narrative and in the information boxes that accompany the chapters.
I think this resource is fantastic for independent study as well as holiday prep.
