Lexicarry: Pictures for Learning Languages


"Lexicarry is the best single all in one language learning resource that we have come across." Greg Thompson: Summer Institute of Linguistics International. Review


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.


The sections of Lexicarry are:
* Functions - expressions and phrases used in everyday life shown in dramatic contexts
* Sequences of actions
* Related actions
* Operations
* Topics - vocabulary items related to one theme
* Places - both scenes/rooms and the things we find and do there
* Proverbs and Sayings - a dynamic way of sharing both language and cultural insights
The English Word List is in the back of the book, while Word Lists for eleven other languages are available for download on the Lexicarry website.

Due to the size and detail of the drawings, any printing should be done in color for best results.
