64 interesting texts to translate from English to French. The 16 topics follow the A Level WJEC topic list, so you can always find a text to match what students are working on.
Each text is accompanied by a series of 3 grammar exercises using the translation as its base. The teacher can choose from two separate methods:
- Use the text-based grammar tasks before translation to familiarise weaker learners with the language needed for the translation
- Use once the translation has been completed to give further language practice.
Each text also includes an example full translation broken down into 15 points. These can be used for the teacher’s reference or for students to self- or peer-mark.

- Nuclear energy

‘It is a thoughtful resource where students can engage actively in current sociocultural topics. It helps them enlarge their vocabulary, gain good understanding of grammar and facilitates teaching the process of translation.’ – V Calderon de la Barca, Proofreader, Writer and Independent Reviewer
‘It is what I have been trawling the Internet for for three years! A thorough and well planned resource which meets the needs of a busy teacher. It could answer a lot of A level teachers’ calls for help!’ – S Gibbons, MFL Teacher and Independent Reviewer
