Reviews

I absolutely think Galore Park books are the best out there for languages. I have found nothing better and will not look for better. I have found it in these books. Thank you for offering rigorous and enjoyable material. A Home Schooler, USA We just completed our first week of Galore Park French and we LOVE it! I am so pleased and so excited about these books. I had purchased another program previously but was very disappointed in many areas - audio CD poorly done, lack of grammar instruction, too slow pace. My children are almost 11 and 8 and a half and Galore Park French is just perfect for them. The audio CD is fabulous. You get to hear actual French conversations done with multiple speakers - great for training the ear. The programme is a terrific mix of grammar instruction and conversation. Not to mention the fantastic layout. It is truly exactly what I was looking for. My children have been practising their French all week and keep asking me if it is time for French class. What high praise! Angelina, Louisiana, USA We love the format and the conversational elements. The pace seems perfect for the target age group as well. The biggest endorsement is the fact that my kids actually like it. Karen Nolan A book to lay the foundations of the French language, giving attention to grammatical rigour without sacrificing reader appeal.
