‘Overall I liked the concept behind this resource. It provides a good general overview of the region and incorporates a range of cross-curricular opportunities which could be exploited further through links to other departments. There was a diverse range of cultural information which should appeal to a range of interests within a class e.g. History, Food, Film & Sport. There was a good variety of linguistic activities and also the opportunity for further independent research. With a fairly high ability class there would not be much need for further planning at all as everything is provided! I think that this resource provides linguistic challenge as preparation for the demands of the GCSE courses but more importantly it also enables students to develop their knowledge and understanding of a region of France. They will also need this understanding and cultural context for their GCSE and A Level studies so it’s important to introduce this to language learners as early as possible. The new GCSE demands specific knowledge of France in terms of its Geography, History and Culture so this resource provides examples that students (many of whom will not have ever been to France) can understand and use successfully in their Speaking and Writing assessments’. – L Clark, Teacher of French at Treorchy Comprehensive school in South Wales 1997-2018 & Peer Reviewer

‘A great resource. The author has clearly done a lot of research about the region and the lessons are nicely sequenced and structured. The activities offer a great variety and all types of learning (VAK) are catered for. It is suitably differentiated for different abilities, with the perfect tense being used in the last lesson. I love the variety of activities and the fact that it would appeal to many learners. I also like the fact that it is a whole scheme of work containing 8 lessons and an assessment unit, which can be taught over several weeks. As a school teacher, I would definitely consider buying this resource (depending on price) as I believe the new GCSE curriculum places an increased focus on cultural awareness, which is often lacking in our students.’ – S Cooke, Teacher of French and Spanish at Cundall Manor School & Peer Reviewer

‘I think this resource is well put together. It’s a great resource to discuss culture with KS3 classes and get them interested. The range of topics covered is very good. The lesson plans provide a quick overview of what is discussed in each lesson and there is an assessment for the end of the project. I like the cultural aspects mixed with the vocabulary acquisition/comprehension questions. The homework suggestion is also a nice touch for busy teachers.’ – I Rodriguez, HoD & Peer Reviewer
