Your site is very good. I often surf for ESL material with disappointing results. I'm happy to find useful and practical lessons and activities. Peter, Canada

"Informative and Chatty Offering". "Altogether this is a delightful and very useful little book." "Max Vocab is a delightful and entertaining journey through the origins and development of some of the more interesting words in English, told with humour and insight. From the origin of the word ‘work’ to idioms involving 'trousers’, this is a fun and easily digested volume, with lively illustrations throughout."
