Readers' Reviews

With Drive, my work is easier, and the worksheets and audio recordings of articles are great. I love the stories – they’re all in the past tense, and this is really useful both for pupils in the last two years of primary school, and older students, too.
Michaela Bartova, Primary school and Lyceum, Jablonec nad Nisou, CR

We have been using Drive for four years. I’m pleased that it makes my job easier, and I can see significant progress in my students. Each month we all look forward to the new issue. But we enjoyed it the most when we prepared the photo-story for Drive ourselves.
Petr Medek, English teacher at School of Applied Arts, Zelezny Brod, CR

I like reading the interviews with people from different professions. Career choice is particularly important for students. Drive also helps us with preparation for school-leaving exams.
Petra Izdna, English teacher at Lyceum, Prague, CR

Thanks to drive, my students have learned to speak fluently about sports and travel, etc. Above all, they talk! Especially about topics which are controversial – things which you could only publish in a magazine – thanks 🙂
