Symtalk is a visual language learning methodology that delivers astonishing results immediately! Symtalk uses a picture system, each picture represents a word in the target language. What makes Symtalk unique is that the pictures represent all parts of speech. Pictures are introduced and practiced in the context of a complete sentence. Students will learn vocabulary and grammar in context and have fun interpreting the self-explanatory pictures.

Symbol Cards are at the core of the Symtalk method. Students use self-explanatory symbols in the place of words to create meaningful sentences. The Symbol Cards represent all parts of speech: subjects, nouns, adverbs, prepositions, and more. The Symbol Cards are introduced in a meaningful sentence structure which allows students to interpret the meaning immediately while grammar is implicitly learned. The cards are available in two formats, as a durable magnetic card or digital images to use on any interactive whiteboard.
Student Workbooks (also available as eBooks) reinforce vocabulary through writing and paired communication activities. The vocabulary is recycled throughout the book and among levels, resulting in mastery of the core vocabulary.
Teacher's Edition Workbook (also available as eBooks) includes the pages of the student workbooks with margin notes that include: teaching tips, additional activities, and suggested assessment. Download a sample chapter.
Games foster communication proficiency and listening skills in a meaningful context. Students communicate in pairs, small groups, or as a class, using the board games.
