  • My class is a group of legal secretaries and a lawyer in the UAE. They absolutely love learning English from these stories! The vocal is all relevant to their jobs and it's motivating. The vocabulary is recycled and they are learning so much. In addition, the listening initially was a challenge but after a few lessons they are getting the hang. Fabulous! thank you!

  • Hi Christina,
    Wonderful! That's great to hear. And good news - the final part of The Second Stain will be published next week. Keep an eye out for our next Sherlock story, A Scandal in Bohemia, which will be published from June.
