We have used all three of Galore Park French books. We found the books had the perfect balance of grammar and vocabulary. I am a great believer that grammar is the most crucial element of learning a new language and that vocabulary is easily gathered from exposure. Grammar requires well-thought out teaching and Galore Park is wonderfully logical with plenty of practice and review. In short, I am very glad we used Galore Park French. I am certain there is nothing to match it out there. It is balanced, easy to use for the self-educator and well-thought through.

We are absolutely loving both Book 1 and 2 in this series, so much so that I would like to twist the Headmaster’s arm to let me buy it for the lower sets. We initially thought it might be too hard for them but it is so accessible it is amazing.

***** Galore Park does it again!
I have examined Nigel Pearce's book from cover to cover. Here, at last, is an uncomplicated textbook of the highest calibre. It contains the best principles of formal language teaching and vast quantities of chaff have been sorted from the limited amount of wheat contained within contemporary educational thinking. Mr. Pearce has given the pendulum of linguistic learning a massive prod back to the ordered structure that is essential in the learning of any language and his book is exactly what so many of us been waiting for.

It is a refreshing change to find a French book that contains assessible reading material, excellent grammatical content and up-to-date cultural information, all with very lively illustrations too!

Galore Park have done it again. Their latest French textbook, written by Nigel Pearce, Head of MFL at Summer Fields School in Oxford, has all the hallmarks that we have come to expect from this leading publishing house. Pick the book up and it feels solid and reliable; examine it and you know immediately that â€˜il fait exactement ce quâ€™il dit sur la boiteâ€™.
Quite how Galore Park manage to maintain the quality of their textbooks in an educational environment that demands ever less of its pupils is something of mystery: the fact that they do is perhaps all the evidence one needs that parents, pupils and teachers alike have had enough of contemporary methodology. This, their latest offering is sure to be greeted with alacrity by all those charged with teaching French in the modern wilderness.
