Anybody know of a good website or books that cover modern foreign languages in key stage 3?
My dd is finding the spelling and grammar difficult. I need something for her where she can practice little and often.
Any ideas appreciated. Mainly spainish :)

Coincidentally we've just come back from my DS's Parents' Evening and his French teacher suggested a couple of websites, one of which is subscription only, but one of which is free:

www.languagesonline.org.uk (free)
www.atantot.com (subscription)

There's also a magazine Allons-y which has its own website.
I hope this helps.

Happy to help tiredmum. (Your moniker is how I feel :lol: ) It was such a coincidence that I'd literally just been given them! It was good for us too, because my son rushed onto the sites to check them out as I was writing about them. :)

A lot of schools subscribe to these websites and give the pupils the username and password. Our school uses both mentioned by ourmam as well as linguascope. Your DD should ask her school if they subscribe.

Thanks for that.
Have just had a look at linguascope it looks fun but also repetative enough for dd to learn from the games. Am going to ask the school if they subscribe. :)

Got dd's assessment grades today. She isn't doing as badly as i thought in the MFL's, spainish was a B/C but french was an A so am pleased. However, am going to make use of the sites mentioned, she seems keen to try. Thank you both for your help :)
