TP Publications

TP Publications was founded by Tony Penston to provide interesting and affordable books which would answer specific needs in the ELT (English Language Teaching) sector. TP Books are ‘Learner-centred’, which means we consider the reader at all times, not just during the writing stage but also for layout and visuals. For example, all tasks must be challenging but enjoyable, few paragraphs may be split across pages, and where a visual would help understanding it must be used.
