  • My 10 year old student LOVES her baby animals top trumps, in all forms of the game. I highly recommend this for capturing the attention of kids and teaching them some fun vocab.
    (Unfortunately one of the words I have had to teach is "cheat!", but you can't win them all... well, not unless you bend the rules!)

  • Great for motivation; fantastic content. Am I parochial in wishing that the map of my beloved New Zealand in Lesson 3 was more accurate? the 2011 Rugby World Cup final was not played in mid-ocean but in Auckland, our largest city.
