Revised 3rd Edition
Lexicarry offers a fun, active, conversational approach to language learning. With this book you can learn any language the active way using one of the Lexicarry word lists and/or someone who knows the language.
The book has full-color drawings illustrating functional language and vocabulary situational and topical contexts. This amounts to over 4500 everyday words and expressions. The pictures make conversation and interactive learning easy.
Unlike standard “picture dictionaries,” Lexicarry stimulates talk, lots of talk, while students build their speaking skills and learn vocabulary.
Students learn by discussing the objects, places, and activities in the drawings, working together in pairs, as a class, or with native speakers. The illustrations are not labeled, and this naturally challenges and excites the students’ imaginations and helps them retain the language. The brilliant colors and often humorous drawings add to the fun of working with Lexicarry.
A great variety of learning activities are explained in detail in two new guides. The first, “The Introduction for the Student” is a simple “How to learn with Lexicarry,” a brief and practical learner’s guide. It appears in the book and, for free, here on Lexicarry.com.
The other guide given in “Materials for the Teacher” here on this website includes easy-to-follow “How to” suggestions for all sorts of teachers, a sharing pool of bright ideas and experiences from other teachers, and links to related professional sites.
