Continental Bookshop


We are a real shop, and obviously the most hands-on approach to purchasing is to drop by and browse through what’s in stock. Our extensive in-stock range offers you unparalleled choice in language learning material (books, audio CDs, a specialised selection of CD-roms and DVDs), reading or activity material in foreign languages, as well as English language fiction and non-fiction (junior and adult titles). Our friendly and knowledgeable staff includes experts in foreign language learning, familiar with a good variety of material and learning methods so that you can get the best advice.

If you’re not in Melbourne, enjoy looking through our on-line title information (or phone us if you can’t see what you’re looking for). You can send your order to us securely - just fill in an order form with your desired titles. We are not merely a virtual shop - we are a real shop, with stock sold to in-store customers as well as to online customers. We always notify you which titles in your order can be supplied immediately from stock, and which titles will be placed on order for you, to be notifed upon arrival.

We’re happy to take orders over the phone - you can check in-stock availability with us as well prior to placing your order.

You can choose to have your order mailed out to you anywhere in Australia or overseas. Email us or phone us to be informed of total postage cost.

We accept payment by credit card, cheque or money order, or cash.

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