Overall I have to say that it is a great resource as it provides lots of opportunity to students, not only for preparing for the writing exam and its writing and translating questions, but also to practice their grammar and their vocabulary of each of the main GCSE topics. The resource mirrors very well the specific exam requirements for the writing element of the Edexcel GCSE Spanish. For example this can be seen in the great number of exam practice questions. It provides lots of opportunities for students to practice their exam and language skills in preparation for their GCSE exams – J Ermina, Teacher, Examiner & Peer Reviewer
