Skills for First Certificate: Reading - Student's Book

2.0 out of 5 stars Expected more, 23 July 2011
Be careful when purchasing this book!

I did and it is only a student's workbook and needs to be used in conjunction with the Skills For First Certificate Reading TEXTBOOK!

Without it, you will not be able to complete the majority of the exercises!


Grammar and Vocabulary for First Certificate: With Key

4.0 out of 5 stars CEFR B2 level grammar, 23 July 2011
An excellent resource for pupils trying to achieve the B2 level of the Common European Framework of Reference for language! It is set up in a way that gives an overview of the grammar point at the beginning of a chapter, it then sends the pupil to an exercise to practise that part, before moving the level up to the next stage.

One downside is that there are sometimes a lot of examples given to a certain grammar point that the pupil gets lost in the detail.

I would recommend this book whole-heartedly, however, only to be used alongside classroom explanation.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent, 23 July 2011
As an extra help when teaching Shakespeare: the main reason for purchasing this edition!

It is extremely well put together, with clear context placement at the beginning to a breakdown scene by scene of the event, its consequences and of course language analysis and explanations. The themes are also extremely well explained!

An asset to either studying Shakespeare's "A Midsummer Night's Dream" or in our case as teacher's notes!


Secret of the Caves (Hardy Boys Mysteries)
Secret of the Caves (Hardy Boys Mysteries)
by Franklin W. Dixon
Edition: Hardcover
Price: £7.99

3.0 out of 5 stars great for the class library, 23 July 2011
We purchased a large range of teenage books for our class library here in the Netherlands. This was one of the titles.

The story is predictable and for 12-14 year olds extremely enjoyable as our pupils proved. They were able to read the book with limited difficulty and that's even with English as a second language.

I do realise now that the story is rather dated as it is in the years of little technology and half of the action would probably not have happened in today's world of high-tech mobile technology. Nevertheless enjoyable for the boys in the class to read!

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic resource, 14 Jun. 2010
As a native speaker teacher, this is the only dictionary that students need in the upper forms for learning English as a second language.

Clearly laid out and easy to use with a fantastic CD-rom to help with pronunciation...what more do you need?

4.0 out of 5 stars Interesting and worthwhile, 1 Feb. 2010
Really made for teachers of English, however, not as colourful or as easy to use as other examples.

Worth it though!


The Lost Symbol (Robert Langdon)
The Lost Symbol (Robert Langdon)
by Dan Brown
Edition: Hardcover

4.0 out of 5 stars The Lost Symbol, 29 Dec. 2009
Langdon returns in another quick, easy-to-read, American thriller based around the world of symbols...this time, it has everything to do with the Masons and America's founding and set-up through the masonary brothers.

Very similar in plot to the well-read and documented Angels and Demons and the Davinci code, you can easily see the parallels in all his writing and it is as though he uses the same framework to build his plot around in each book.

For anyone who has visited Washington DC before, an absolute "must" to read and look and study all the sites and sounds of the marvellous city. I think that I'll have to pay another visit and see all the paintings and places one more time and check out the timings which he uses! It all happens too fast...

Worth a read for entertainment's sake but not for fact nor history!

3.0 out of 5 stars The missing link between series 1 and 2, 29 Dec. 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Benidorm - The Special [DVD] (DVD)
We watched series one, missed the special and then watched series 2, but kept thinking that we had missed a certain part of the whole saga!

It wasn't as good as series two but for the detail and reasons why certain events happen in series 2, this was definitely worth it!

Great acting but some really corny story lines, which took away from the cliffhanger at the end of series one!

Why this wasn't placed in the Series two compilation DVD, I don't know as this one hour long special is all that is on the DVD with a loaded commentary too. A pity and a waste of money for one episode but an absolute must to link both series together.

4.0 out of 5 stars Typical Grisham!, 29 Dec. 2009
This review is from: The Associate (Paperback)
An excellent page-turner and enjoyable story, however, a classic Grisham in all its plot, build-up, cliffhangers and sudden changes and chance meetings! The ending leaves me rather dissatisfied and it feels at least for me to be unfinished!
