'The content of the pack, as we might expect from these authors, is comprehensive and appealing. There is a good range of texts for analysis and purposeful supporting video clips. The approach taken is to methodically work through aspects of the Language Framework, allowing students to explore both conceptual and illustrative detail as they go. There is a very useful glossary that will be a boon to A Level teachers and students alike. Transcripts and original texts abound and contextualising information is given in clear, student friendly language. 
Teachers I have spoken to who have used this resource praise its methodical approach and inspiring choice of texts. Our centre has found it particularly useful for supporting individual students outside of class. Once it is set up on the intranet it proves to be a very effective means of supporting independent learning.'
