About Express Publishing
Express Publishing is a wholly independent publishing house dedicated to producing quality ELT materials. Founded in 1988, the company has enjoyed steady, rapid growth and currently has a list of over 2,000 titles, with sales in over 80 countries worldwide. Uniquely among leading publishers, we view ELT not as one department of a larger concern, but as the single focus of our operations.

Range of Publications
Express Publishing’s publications cater for both adult learners and children, at a full range of levels, in US English as well as UK English. Publications for children include specialised courses and other material for very young learners, teenage beginners and so on.

Express Publishing’s course books are typically complemented by an audio CD for class work, a student’s CD for self-access study, a workbook with grammar, a teacher’s book and a test booklet.

In addition, our list includes: courses and test books for exam preparation and practice; a variety of supplementary material (grammar, skills development, etc); a wide range of readers; CDs, DVDs, videos; and innovative, award-winning multimedia material.

Customer Satisfaction
Express publications are notable for commanding brand loyalty from teachers and educational administrators, whose satisfaction with one or more of our titles lead them to adopt several others from our list.

The trust they show in the Express imprint is largely due to the consistent, distinctive nature of our publications, which are all characterised by clear, dependable methodology, systematic integration of tasks, and attractive visual presentation. We were among the first ELT publishers to adopt full colour for all our course books, and this is still our standard practice. Another popular feature of our publications is the fact that they are each accompanied by a comprehensive teacher’s guide with step-by-step lesson plans, detailed teaching suggestions and a wealth of additional resources.

Thinking Globally, Acting Locally
Express Publishing is one of the world´s leading publishers of ELT materials, with sales in six continents. Our worldwide distribution network utilises the local expertise of well over 100 on-the-spot representatives and experienced ELT consultants.

This not only offers customers immediate service and support, but also provides invaluable feedback which increases our awareness of the real needs of learners and teachers in each region. In several countries, Express produces special editions to meet local requirements, and we also work in collaboration with local publishers and local authors to produce customised material for specific purposes.
