We are pleased to announced that companion websites for Al-Kitaab third edition, Comme on dit, C’est ce qu’on dit, Panorama, and Gramática, 3e are available for full use by independent learners beginning July 1, 2021, and the Rodnaya rech’ companion website will be fully available by August 1, 2021 (a sample chapter can be viewed here). All companion websites for Georgetown University Press textbooks can be used either independently or in a class with an instructor.

Do all Georgetown University Press textbooks have companion websites?

No. The following books have companion websites: Alif Baa, 3e; Al-Kitaab Part One, 3e; Al-Kitaab Part Two, 3e; Comme on dit; C’est ce qu’on dit; Panorama; Rodnaya rech’; and Gramática para la composición, 3e.

I bought a textbook and have not yet started using it for independent study. I noticed it does not include companion website access. What do I do? 

If you want to start using the standalone textbook now, you may purchase access to the new Lingco companion website directly through the companion website platform as soon as it becomes available on July 1, 2021. To do so, log in or create an account on Lingco and follow the prompts. If you do not anticipate using the companion website until after August 1, 2021, we encourage you to preorder the new textbook (which has a new ISBN), which includes companion website access and will be available on August 1, 2021.

Purchasing the standalone textbook and the companion website access separately will be the same price as ordering the bundled textbook + website (i.e., the version with the new ISBN) when they become available on August 1, 2021. Please note that the content of the textbooks will not change; the only difference is that companion website access is included in the purchase of the new textbook, and there is a slightly different cover (which mentions the website).

Will I be able to use all of the companion websites’ functionality as an independent learner?

Companion websites include hundreds of activities, many of which provide automated feedback and/or sample answers. Some activities, however, may require manual grading by an instructor. In these cases, while independent learners can complete the activities, feedback is not be given on them because there is no instructor to review them.
