Any day now, ProLingua Associates
will launch a new site, Lexicarry.com to accompany
their revised, color version of the classic "Lexicarry" text, first published in black and
white in 1984. In the new book, Patrick R. Moran has chosen vibrant colors to add
refreshing depth to a famous book which ESL teachers have sworn by for years.
The new site, Lexicarry.com, will eventually provide learners and teachers with
vocabulary lists in multiple languages to accompany the new color Lexicarry book.
In one review of the black and white Lexicarry, Greg Thompson, of SIL
International (sil.org) called it
"the best single all in one language learning resource that we have
Lexicarry is much more than a vocabulary-building
resource. The first portion of the book contains comic-style
story strips, normally three frames per story, and bubbles
with the words missing. The stories illustrate a number of
basic language functions and communication situations.
You can find more information about the new Lexicarry
and other books available for ordering online
at the ProLingua Associates site. To get more information or
to order by e-mail, you can send a note to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Or call the PLA hotline, 800-366-4775.
Also, there are free online samples from other
Pro Lingua textbooks, at http://www.prolinguaassociates.com/Pages/freearch.html.
