Hi we have introduced short course GCSE languages this year at my school and we are already wondering, just one week in, how we will cover the course sufficiently in one hour a week. Classes are all mixed ability with no possibility of setting, some classes have 17-20 students of whom some are complete beginners and some are relatively advanced and should, in all honesty, have chosen the full course GCSE. I just wondered if anyone on here has experience of the short course or has started it this year and how they are planning to cover the work load. Is one hour a week comparable with others teaching the short course? Any advice would be gratefully received! Thank you!
