'The grammatical descriptions are very clear and up-to-date, reflecting a profound knowledge of the language and of its study, and of the art of language pedagogy. The course is one more fine example giving the lie to the deep-roots academic tendency to look down on anything which might be tainted with association with "teaching materials".' – Forum for Modern Language
