"All our pupils have thoroughly enjoyed using the program, we have noticed positive by-products of using the CD-ROM, extra reading lessons, pure excitement when groups of 2 or 3 children work together, novel ways of understanding the plot, characters and themes, and feelings of achievement. Pupils tell me they don’t forget the acts and scenes when they work on the CD-ROM." Head of English, Farringdon Community School, Newcastle
"A very useful resource. The variety of activities and the impressive production values are obvious. I like the idea of challenging students against the clock!"
