Big Publisher / Small Publisher

While big publishers may do a great job sometimes… a lot of their products are begging for new ideas and material… and revision…
The big publishers who have secured their quasi monopoly status in the business… tend to lose it after some time… and end up a far cry from what is needed…

Some great English course books have come out in the past… i.e. Kernel One (general English), which remains unrivalled some 40 years later… or the revolutionary (at the time) International Express (PI), which has also influenced a considerable number of followers inhouse as much as outhouse… few and far between are the books that have achieved the same success… and results !
They are still available on #Amazon new and/or secondhand…

Smaller and younger publishers often venture in uncharted territories and come up with new and original ideas, which deserve more than they get…as was the case a decade ago with LTP… sadly gone today… which offered some of the best books ever ! Better than those of the bigger publishers…

Big is not always beautiful… and teachers should always be on the lookout for new books… rather than just buy the books brought to them…

There is a wealth of material besides the bigger productions… and a lot of them come free too !
Audiobooks, books, eBooks, games, podcasts, shows, videos, etc… the sky is the limit…
All those may stand-in for other material supports and approaches… or top them up to the best effect… and much better results ! See my other articles here…
