‘I thought it was very different to anything I have seen before for GCSE French. I liked the cultural and historical element, and think a lot of classes would really enjoy studying this. I genuinely enjoyed reading the texts; the story was very engaging! I was impressed by the level of exploitation of each text – there are so many different activities at a variety of levels.’ – I Coleman, French Teacher and Examiner and Independent Reviewer
