Written by a content subject teacher and an EFL teacher this unique title is aimed at students studying in English. The clearly written content and integrated language work will make it perfect as a companion guide for any secondary students with English as an additional language.

`"This is truly one of its kind. I am so glad to finally see resources that cater for EAL students that are relevant to GCSE content. My students find that this is easy to follow and very clearly written. I would definitely recommend this book for GSCE students. All science topics are covered (Biology, Chemistry and physics) and it is very simple to understand. A brilliant study companion!"' Via, Science Teacher
