Frequently Asked Questions

Do you stock learning material for foreign languages? Yes, we do. We have a great range of in-stock titles to help you learn your target language effectively – textbooks, self-teaching courses with audio material, pronunciation CDs, verbwheels, grammar books, verb conjugation books, dictionaries, learner’s readers, dual-language books, phrasebooks, all you can think of! If we don’t have the title you're looking for, we would be happy to order it for you if it is in print and available.

Can you order titles from overseas? Yes – we regularly order from publishers all over the world.

What about books in English? Do you stock them? Yes, we have a select range of books in English, both junior and adult titles, in fiction and non-fiction. Of SPECIAL note is that we can order titles in English from publishers in Australia, the UK, the USA, and more. That means we can order quite obscure titles for you that no one else in Australia can obtain.

Does that mean you can obtain hard-to-find titles? Yes – because we order from publishers all over the world, we offer an unparalleled search-and-order facility for BOOKS, AUDIOBOOKS, and more. Whereas many bookshops in Australia confine their database information to local publishers, we deal with a much wider range – so check with us! We might be able to help with that elusive title for which you’ve been looking.

Can you find books based on SUBJECT and recommend something for me? Yes, we can help you if you’re looking for something based on subject, but aren’t sure where to start. We’ll provide the information (usually by email), and yours is the final choice.

Do you stock ESL material? While we don’t specialise in ESL material, we’'re happy to order any title that you would like to request, including ESL titles.

Can you send my order interstate or overseas? Yes, we’re happy to provide mail-order service to anywhere in the world. Postage charges (including insurance if you request it) are available on request.

Do you provide language teaching? We don’t give classes, but will be happy to suggest self-teaching material that can give you the help you need, or call by to our shop to view our language notice board, where we maintain some language teacher information.

If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
