GCSE (intermediate) interactive revision links 2013

In England and Wales, when those blessed controlled assessments are over, you can focus totally on comprehension and vocabulary building for the remaining exams. Here is a handy list of some good interactive revision links for this level. These links are also good for intermediate exams in Scotland, Ireland and other English-speaking countries. You could copy and paste this to print off for students.

I do recommend the free print-off from frenchteacher.net (see Reading link below). I designed it for pupils working at the grade A-C level at GCSE. Good for individual work and students like the booklet format.

The URL for the BBC learning Zone is very long, so I have posted that as a link.

By the way, a decent app for students to download would be the Cramit one which is pretty good for vocabulary, but frankly, the mobile offerings are generally not up to much. For listening, you could suggest Coffee Break French from Radio Lingua Network.
