Excellent! The aim of this book is to ensure the sound knowledge of grammar and syntax, which must be the foundation of all successful language study, and this book achieves this aim with just the right level of information. Very good in-depth sections on grammar are complemented by focused exercises which back-up the explanations. Using this book, pupils will acquire increased confidence and the ability to handle the language in a flexible manner. Yvette Redgwell, Hill House School An elegant combination of the best of traditional language education with an accessible and friendly style. Vibrantly illustrated and resoundingly popular with pupils, these books provide a solidly academic and rigorous approach. Jane Bassett, Eaton Square School, London 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
