French GCSE 9 - 1 Specifications - Theme 2 – Topic 4 – Travel & Tourism.

(5)
Easily adaptable for home learning. This a sample of the resource packs that I have created for the GCSE New Specifications for each topic area within each theme. This sample contains many of the slides from the original PowerPoint and aims to give you an insight into these resources so you can ‘try before you buy’. In this PowerPoint there are still 51 slides, but this is quite a lot less than the payable resource and the listening section as well as parts of reading and speaking sections have been omitted. Also in the original resources there are always answers and a whole range of worksheets to go with the PowerPoint. I hope it’s useful.
