What do teachers say about Oxford's english resources?

“The texts we have used have been fantastic… and the teacher resources are very handy. There are many 'extras' that complement our course and are invaluable when extending or supporting students… this works well and is handy for homework as they no longer need to carry heavy books home. Students can pace their learning and teachers can assign work at relevant levels for individual students.”
