On the whole, I think that it is a great resource as it provides lots of opportunity to boost students´ Spanish language acquisition and comprehension skills through the use of lots of motivating, relevant and engaging videos. The resource also gives students plenty of chances to practice their grammar and their vocabulary of the several Spanish A level topics and also to enhance their cultural knowledge of Spanish speaking countries and their people by means of A level topics. In general I like the fact that the resource mirrors very well the main topics for the first year of the A level Spanish, such as the monarchy in Spain or the actual situation of the equalitarian marriage in Chile.
Apart from the topics, I like the variety of tasks included, such as listening and comprehension exercises and translations, which will be very beneficial to students as this could boost their confidence when tackling the listening and reading exam questions. – J Ermina, MFL Teacher, Examiner & Peer Reviewer
