Who We Are

Pro Lingua Learning was formed in 2021 when Pro Lingua Associates and Language Arts Press joined forces – two like-minded and seasoned publishers who believe that fulfillment and “success” in our profession occur solely in the context of inspired teachers and learners. As teachers ourselves, we embrace our role in developing instructional materials that help create that success and inspiration – books and web-based applications that promote joy and interaction, that are relevant and engaging, and that are clear and scaffolded. We have spent our entire professional lives pursuing these ideals and values.

We are you. And we publish.
