  • These books are excellent. The reading matter and the images are thoroughly international, and the questions are naturally engaging, so they are good for any curriculum. Every student is bound to find something to like and to identify with. The grammar practice is easy for students to follow, and it has super vocabulary building exercises. It's a great resource for native speakers as well as EAL students. - Gilly Halfpenny, Vienna International School, Austria
  • It lends the MYP English Programme a degree of structure without losing any of the flexibility to bring in your own ideas. - Andrew Macoustra, International School of the Hannover Region, Germany
  • I personally think it is exciting and brings alive the different parts of the world our students are drawn from. - Greg Ward, Turku International School, Finland
