What a fantastic resource! I LIKE EVERYTHING! This is the most exciting product on the market for AQA A Level Spanish that I have seen in 10 years! Apart from the ‘Getting to Know Guides’ every teacher should treat their students to this very useful, informative and progressive resource. The activities are engaging, educational and formatted brilliantly. It starts with vocab, grammar and builds into practice exercises, translation and then to independent activities requiring speaking and creative writing etc. All aspects of grammar are incorporated. Excellent idioms ‘ponerse la piel de gallina etc. Excellent stop and think questions ‘escalofrío which is super for differentiation. This is a superb, well devised, progressive, stretching and highly appropriate resource for A Level Spanish. It will really help my teaching of the challenging topics like racism and immigration. Students will be able to access the higher grades with these manageable activities by native speakers using current and topical language. – J Parker, Asst. Director of Languages & Peer Reviewer

It covers the A Level topics in a young person friendly and accessible way. Presenting a series of podcasts destigmatises listening comprehension by presenting what are essentially listening comprehension exercises in a less threatening way. This resource integrates, comprehension, grammar and translation skills. It would be a good focus for a topic-specific lesson and also could be used for independent learning given transcripts and answers are provided. – G Fagan, HoD and Peer Reviewer
