    Our family loves Shurley English. The jingles are fun for the students and as their teacher I really like the way the lessons build upon one another. It allows them to completely digest one concept before adding another. The pace is great. This is our second year using this curriculum and though there are other all inclusive curriculums, I still elect to purchase my subjects separately so that I can make sure that my students are getting the absolute best I can I find. The first few chapters are essentially reviews of materials learned last year and then the chapters begin to add on to that material. I found this to be extremely helpful as I was somewhat nervous about what information may or may not have been retained by my student. He's done great and the jingles came back naturally (for both of us!). =)

    I ordered Shurley English after reading some of the reviews, and it came recommended by Cathy Duffy, as well. I think the program is comprehensive, and I like what is being taught, I just don't like how it is being taught. My daughter thinks the jingles are silly and she's refused to do them so we've no use for them. Also, the teaching scripts are mostly for oral instruction - so this course is more geared towards the auditory learner, and my daughter is more visual and hands-on. I've had to type up EVERY single lesson so my daughter can read them herself; she's an avid reader and understands the lessons better by seeing them rather than just hearing them. And, she better understands the practice sections by the time she gets to them when she can read her own lessons.

    Because I have to type up every lesson and all the teaching scripts, I find this curriculum just too time consuming for me as a parent, and for my child. My daughter dreads English now, so I'm switching to another Language Arts program that is less overwhelming for the both of us!

    This program does have a lot of great information in it, however, I wish they geared it a little more for independent study, and for all types of learners (auditory, visual, and hands-on), and gave the information in smaller bits so it's more easily digested. I excelled in English in school and want my daughter to love and appreciate it as well. Unfortunately, Shurley English is having the opposite affect.

    While I have not yet started using it in teaching, I did look it over and was pleased to see that it is easy to use like the previous levels. I am looking forward to starting on Monday.

    I believe Shurley English is a great program. I am able to help my 9 year old write better by discussing the parts of speech in his writing that he is learning in this course. I enjoyed the "bonus" of the states and capitals in level 2 but didn't feel it was necessary to repeat in level 3. I gave a four star rather than five because there are other unnecessary exercises as well but the foundation of the curriculum is great.
