"The book has proved invaluable in one to one teaching, allowing me to focus on the student's problem areas. I have also used it with success in a group environment. There is sufficient material to provide meaningful practice of each sound with enough variety to keep students entertained." --A teacher from St. George International college, London.

"We were surprised by the large number of students who wanted to get rid of their accents." --Tim Matthew, Oxford House College, London
