Elena Benito-Ruiz, creator of the E|FL 2.0 Blog, writes a most enthusiastic review of the Real English® Web Lessons and videos

About com Kenneth Beare of ESL About com gives Real English a rare 5 stars out of 5, noting "This ambitious project guides beginners, intermediates, and more advanced students through a functional and grammatical learning experience..."

The Language Learning & Technology Review: "The inclusion of different accents and "real" people also contributes to the authenticity of the program by reflecting the current state of English as an international lingua franca. Indeed, this kind of input is extremely rare in existing ESL materials, granting Real English a unique strength... there is no doubt that Real English has achieved excellence."

EFL Web Review by Mark Ellison Taylor
"Changing accents and the good humour of both interviewer and interviewee ensure that the sequences are always engaging. Even teachers will find it entertaining. The Marzio School's Real English videos are, without question, extremely useful resources for any EFL teacher's bag of tricks".

Dr. Elizabeth Hanson-Smith


Excerpt from an article written for ESL Magazine by Elizabeth Hanson-Smith, Ph.D., Computers for Education:

"The Real English product is fascinating – to the extent that even native speakers enjoy listening and watching... Here are people speaking ingenuously about themselves... You just can't stop watching, even when people in the street are reciting the alphabet! Real English has all the apparatus for grammar practice a teacher could possibly want... beyond a shadow of a doubt, this is one of the best new products to come out on CD, videocassette, & online since all of National Geographic."

Parlez-vous français? When we published the Real English CD-ROMs, they did not go unnoticed by the French press. France's favorite pay-TV channel, Canal Plus, also wrote a stunning review. Canal
