Detail from an Ancient Greek kylix or wine cup, depicting scenes of education: on the left, a bearded man teaches a boy how to play a 'barbition', an instrument like a lyre; in the centre, a man unrolls a scroll, while a boy and another man look on.

Teachers’ feedback

Helped to extend knowledge and understanding and stimulate discussions…Absolutely great for speaking and listening…opportunities for success for all.

I thought this was an absolutely brilliant resource that captured imagination and interest.  We were really pleased that it helped us focus on speaking and listening skills, and so gives us a little bit of balance in an English curriculum which has a heavy emphasis on writing … I loved teaching it.
