Star Wars: Battlefront [PC Code - Origin]
Star Wars: Battlefront [PC Code - Origin]
Price: £16.66

1.0 out of 5 stars Excellent potential, awfully executed., 4 Jun. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Awful.
It looks great and the sounds are absolutely amazing. But there is no proper singleplayer and the matchmaking is terrible. It takes so long to get a game, you could go and kill a cow, wait for it to cure and then go have a steak.

A massive massive massive massive let down.

5.0 out of 5 stars Why reinvent the wheel yourself? A useful compendium for all, 4 Jan. 2016

Chockablock full of life-saving techniques, strategies, and activities for any teacher.

As a trainee I've already used a few of the activities and they have been exceptionally well received by students and observers alike.

4.0 out of 5 stars Reasonable, 4 Jan. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
For the price I wasn't expecting much. They fit comfortably, with the ear loops being rubbery for comfort - my last pair of sports 'phones had plastic loops which weren't particularly comfortable.

The only downside is the sound quality - tinny with basically no bass.

4.0 out of 5 stars Slightly large but good value, 4 Jan. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I was a bit wary buying a pair of running shoes from a brand that I did not recognise. However, these shoes seem fine.

They are slightly larger than expected, however I run with orthotic insoles, so this was not a problem for me - it might be for other people though.

The sole is thicker than my Karrimor's, and the fabric is thinner. However I have no problem jogging or running on the treadmill in these - I bought them for indoor use only.

Logitech K480 Multi Device Bluetooth Keyboard for PC, Smartphone and Tablet (QWERTY) - Black

5.0 out of 5 stars Well worth the investment, 4 Jan. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This keyboard is great.

While the device is heavy and expensive compared to other bluetooth keyboards, the device links excellently to multiple devices and the selector dial is really useful - the slot/stand is big enough to hold a 10.1 inch tablet landscape, or it portrait with a phone - useful for having multiple screens. (Especially considering that Android does not have complete multi-window functionality - yet.)

The keys are good to type on, travelling just the right amount - which is nice considering the price. I also own an Anker keyboard which cost far less - the typing experience is not as nice.

Well worth the money.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good but not perfect., 4 Jan. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The case itself is slightly larger than my Moto G. However, it fits fine, and it is possible to use the touch screen on the device through the case.

The key holder is tight enough to hold a key without being uncomfortable, and the strap itself is not uncomfortable, although it can be a bit tight and leave little indents on the skin - larger users beware!

No instructions, but it is pretty self explanatory how to use the product.

Good for the price.


The Excellent 11: Qualitites Teachers and Parents Use to Motivate, Inspire, and Educate Children
The Excellent 11: Qualitites Teachers and Parents Use to Motivate, Inspire, and Educate Children
by Ron Clark
Edition: Paperback
Price: £9.11

5.0 out of 5 stars Fab stuff, 4 Jan. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It was a random Facebook advert that introduced me to Ron Clark and the Ron Clark Academy. I don't usually click on adverts but the school looked amazing.

Cue lots of research into Ron Clark and his teaching.

This book is fabulous. Ron Clark's writing is both inspirational and useful at the same time. His anecdotes serve to drive the information, rather than forming the book's entirety.

1.0 out of 5 stars Damaging for teachers, 4 Jan. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I thought this would be an entertaining book, with humorous stories. Instead it reads as though Mr. Chalk is incredibly disillusioned as a teacher, and hates kids. The terms he uses to describes them start of as humorous, then become grating, then just annoying and make him appear bitter.

This book does more to damage the reputation of teachers than to show the general public what teachers have to deal with on a daily basis, and how they manage behaviour.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good quality build, 10 April 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
No instructions for fitting!

EDIT:

Following a cycle crash where another person rode into me (it was unavoidable, I had stopped and they weren't looking and rode directly into the front of the bike), I've purchased another.

Even though others have commented on the build quality, I've had no problems with either basket. Despite taking a head on collision, my first basket merely crumpled - all the solder joints stayed soldered.

4.0 out of 5 stars Entertaining, 8 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Barry O'Leary provides an entertaining insight into the world of TEFL. Obviously this is just one guy's experience, but what an experience he had!

This isn't a book on how to teach English, but a telling of what one man got up to on his travels.

It does stall a little in places, but on the whole it's fairly fast paced and gripping.
