‘Fantastic resource! Staged really well to help students understand what is required of them and it gives them good practice in the skills. I’m sure students will feel more confident after doing some of the tasks and teachers will feel better equipped to mark the summaries as the mark scheme is really clear with good suggestions of what to accept and not accept.’ – S Lemmetyinen, MFL Teacher and Independent Reviewer
‘I feel this resource is extremely valuable, as it gives students vital practice of key skills for their exam. As the texts mirror the specification so closely, this resource will enable crucial practice. The texts are appropriate in their difficulty and topics and complement the AQA specification very well. I really like the structure of the resource, which enables you to work on a skill in lesson and then set the exam style activity as homework or vice versa. The guidance is so clear, that it could also be used completely for independent study. I particularly like the focus on paraphrasing and using synonyms, as many of my students struggle with this in an exam.’ – H Oberg, Head of German and Ind. Reviewer
