“First Resort is a brilliant resource. I love the new updated illustrations. This has literally saved me hours and hours of lesson preparation.” Tutor 

“A very good resource for teaching English to beginners. The illustrations are bright and clear and there are a variety of methods adopted, such as matching games, writing the word next to the correct picture, labelling a diagram. The students learn about a range of topics and especially enjoy the matching games!”  Tutor
