I will buy it as soon as it becomes available and will tell my other Spanish colleagues to do so too.I love the fact that the resources are organised by topic so that you can just find a worksheet on what you are currently teaching rather than having to go through sample exam papers looking for resources which is very time consuming.

As a department with a limited budget this really appeals to me.’ – G Smith, Head of Spanish and Independent Reviewer

“I like the way that it spans the entire course and is designed for continuous assessment. Rather than just use these as end of topic tests you can also create short end of lesson tests. I really like the way that the last question is synoptic and spans the entire course… This is really useful is setting up students for the high mark questions in the specification. I also really like the extension questions to challenge more able students but also that the shorter answer questions are appropriate for those less able students and help to scaffold their assessment and revision.” – C.
