Linguapress was founded in 1980, as an independent EFL publisher. Now essentially on-line, its principal mission is to make available to all, at no cost, an ever-growing collection of high quality English language teaching and learning resources. Linguapress recently returned to its original mission as a print publisher, and now also publishes a small selection of books.
Linguapress welcomes new content and classroom resource proposals from writers and teachers.
