This is one of the best KS3 resources I have seen in years – and I am a teacher, resource author and review so I have seen a lot! I like the range of activities the sequencing of them, the conscious focus on grammar with very short but very targeted activities, and the use of interesting conversational structures such as ‘como yo’ which illustrate the communicative aspect of language learning. – R Bravo, Head of Spanish & Peer Reviewer

This material is excellent and inspirational. I find this resource very appropriately written for its year group (KS3). I feel that there are many resources for GCSE and A-Level but there aren’t enough for KS3 so in my view this is a much needed resource which included a variety of topics, exercises and it is well designed. The fact that this is a podcast and it offers the listening opportunities as well as the reading practice makes it likeable and versatile. It gives so much cultural information and is so related to GCSE topics and real life events. From these points of view this resource is fantastic. – C Ortega Del Blanco, Head of Spanish & Peer Reviewer
