This summer, we’ve made loads of updates to thisislanguage.com, to make it better than ever for you and your students. Here’s the low-down:

 

German Grammar

The German grammar section is now ready to go! It includes teacher-written explanations of all of the grammar points set out in the new GCSE specifications, accompanied by comprehensive, interactive activities to develop and test students’ receptive and productive skills.

New videos

We’ve been to France, Germany, Spain and Colombia to bring you videos on all the topics required for the new GCSE. We have added over 680 new videos (not to mention some 2500 exercises!) on topics such as homelessness, volunteering and social issues, ready for your classes!
