English Activation Pack Testimonials
Just what I needed
This is a great way to learn about phrasal verbs as well as idioms. I have been studying English for 10 years, but I have never had such a funny way to learn before. Thank you for your hard work Richard.
A good idea
It’s a very good idea. The whole pack looks nice and has a lot of information inside. I certainly learned some new vocabulary. I will buy some more packs soon. Thank you.
This is the fourth English Activation Pack I have bought and it really is the best yet. The conversation simulations are amazingly useful. I can see how different answers get different responses. I can also see how not to ask questions or make complaints. I can’t wait for the next pack.
Not able to tell you how happy I am with the inversion English Activation Pack. No sooner did I begin the quiz than I began to see a big improvement. I’m hoping to do the CPE in the Autumn, so this is just what I needed.
The 5Wh activation pack is very best. Thank you much for you help me with English. Now I ask questions well.
Being Italian, I always have problems with the h at the beginning of words. This silent letter activation packs is exactly what I needed. I only paid one euro but it is worth much more than I paid. Next time I will pay more because it’s worth every cent. You won’t regret it.
I can’t say enough about the do or make pack. It’s exactly what I’ve been looking for. I won’t make the same mistakes I used to.
I couldn’t have asked for more than this in the pick pack. I’m so pleased and I can’t wait for the next one. They are great!
