Dear list member,

I'm looking for the Tate Oral English Series. I'd be grateful if you have any 
information on how I can buy it. It was written by Gloria Tate and George 
Pittman, and published by the South Pacific Commision (I think).

Actually, I'm looking for any program for teaching English, German or French 
orally to children 3-6 years old. I mean without the alphabet.

Dear linguists,

I don't know if this topic has already studied. If I am making questions 
which have already been answered, please let me know and point me the 
I am an Italian student who intends to conduct a research on the 
diffusion of English, as an international language.
I would read dfifferent point of view from American or European books or 
articles.( I am specially interested in the presence and influence in my 
mother tongue of a so great number of Anglo-American words).
Thanks in advance
Yours sincerely
Marilena Di Stasi
