A great foundation

“The English Experience Native Commissioner Resource is a very useful tool that serves as a great foundation for the kids. The plot and sub-plots are all neatly defined. It offers various interpretations of characters, events etc., which students can then either argue against or explore further.”

~ Sandy Woolard, St Mark’s
