GCSE English RevisionPod

English Revision Made Easy

About


AboutAbout
GCSE English RevisionPod was started in London in 2018. Mr Gallie and Mr Forster— two passionate and experienced English teachers—decided their students needed revision lessons that they could carry around in their pockets. In each episode, they take you through how to write an essay in response to a particular GCSE style question. There is also a completely free handout which details the structure of the argument, the analysis and the key vocabulary used.

Almost a year later, the podcast has been downloaded over 100,000 times and the inbox was flooded on results day with listeners who were thrilled with their results.

If you have a text you would like us to cover, you can contact us on Twitter or email us: englishrevisionpod@gmail.com
