“Being able to understand an entire story of 15 chapters would give students a sense of achievement and this resource could be a useful means of improving comprehension skills by identifying topic-specific vocabulary used in different contexts. There is a good variety of grammar and structures, which could be exploited further to improve students’ speaking and writing skills – in particular the range of past tenses used which could serve as useful models for students to remember when they should use preterite/imperfect/perfect tenses.” –D Rafferty, Teacher & Peer Reviewer

“This is a good, well-thought-out resource which can be used in a variety of ways depending on the ability level of the class. I liked the fact that it uses storytelling as a form of learning new vocabulary and that it is divided into the GCSE topics so clearly. It familiarises students with authentic texts and translation activities, as well as [providing] obvious reading and listening opportunities.” – M Cosgrove, Teacher & Peer Reviewer
