What families are saying:

"In Classical Conversations, Essentials is the bridge between two worlds. It invites students to cross from the art of grammar to experience the art of the dialectic with questions and rich conversations. The Essentials of the English Language Guide (EEL) is our support tower that anchors the cables and provides balance and beauty." —Jaime Kovanda
