AQA German GCSE Reading Workbook

AQA German GCSE Reading Workbook

Based on the model answers for my German Writing Workbook (https://www.tes.com/teaching-resource/aqa-german-gcse-writing-workbook-and-model-answers-11657241) this reading workbook contains 3 reading worksheets for every topic in the new AQA German GCSE syllabus plus answers for every task at the end of the document. Ideal for reading practice and assessments in Key Stage 4, revision and independent work for Year 11, or extension work for more able Key Stage 3 students. This can also be used for cover lessons with non-specialists as the tasks are straightforward and there are answers. As well as the Word document, I have included a PDF in case the fonts are not available on certain computers and the formatting therefore doesn't work properly on the Word doc. All questions and answers are my own, based on the new specification GCSE reading papers, and the photos are from royalty-free websites and it is all therefore photocopiable.
