Simple, let us have comments and feedback on our resources!

One of our customers responded …

‘We already use this book at school and it is brilliant! I would recommend it to any Primary school who offers French!’ (Foreign Language Teacher at an Independent School in London which has been awarded ‘School of the Week’ by School House Magazine.)

In return we sent a 20% discount code for use on our website as a thank you.

How easy is that?
