Message 2: Submission to Call List

Subject: Submission to Call List

Dear Instructor/Linguist,

I'm a student in Comparative Literature at Cornell University in
Ithaca, NY. Currently, I am working as a publishing intern with
Spoken Language Services, Inc.

I am writing because Spoken Language Services, Inc. is presently
seeking accomplished authors of new instructional materials in the
Less Commonly Taught Languages, as well as in the widely taught
languages such as French and Spanish. In particular, we are
interested in materials with an audio-visual or multimedia component.
Keeping course materials current with the latest language-learning
techniques and methodologies is one of our most important goals, and
as part of this effort, we are seeking accomplished authors of new
instructional materials.

In addition to our Spoken series, available in Arabic, Hausa, Malay,
Swahili, and Tagalog among others, we currently offer a series of
English as a Foreign Language, and will review materials geared toward
students learning English as well. Some of our EFL publications such
as English for Speakers of Spanish and English for Speakers of
Vietnamese, have been well received for their targeted approach toward
speakers of a specific language.

Materials submitted for review may be sent to the following address:

		Spoken Language Services, Inc.
		Publishing Department
		P.O. Box 783 
		Ithaca, NY 14851

More information is available upon request; please contact me by
telephone at (607)-256-0500 or by email with any questions.

Thank you for your time and consideration.
