‘The reading texts have a very high level of challenge in terms of advanced vocabulary. The activities following each text focusing on consolidating the vocabulary with pupils are excellent, especially as they focus on the higher level vocabulary and are varied with each text, meaning they aren’t repetitive for pupils. The grammatical activities are of an excellent standard, focusing on the grammatical structures needed by pupils to gain marks in the higher bands of the linguistic complexity aspect of the mark schemes. Some translations very challenging, with some being even more at AS level (e.g. on Worksheet 2), which is a very good level of challenge for higher ability pupils and teachers can even point out to pupils that they are good preparation for A-Level. This is a very useful feature of these.’ – C Hennessy, HoD and Independent Reviewer

‘The layout is fantastic. It follows a logical order and has a variety of activities included, which tackle the requirements of the GCSE. The topics incldued are not necessarily specific to a certain exam board, which is fantastic as it can be therefore used by all exam centres. It has also given an insight into the cultural aspects that are not always covered in lessons, which is a real bonus. Articles and topics are kept up to date, and therefore relevant to students. The variety of tasks in itself will progress learning, but the thought process is what makes it more impressive, as it requires students to think logically about things and the difficulty in tasks becomes progressively harder as they work their way through.’ – S Durrant, Head of MFL and Independent Reviewer
