For Independent Learners

Companion websites for all Al-Kitaab Third Edition textbooks are now available for full use by independent learners. All companion websites for Georgetown University Press textbooks can be used either independently or in a class with an instructor.

Students and independent learners receive 18 months of access that begins after a free 14-day grace period.

I bought a textbook that does not include companion website access. What do I do? 

If you have already purchased the standalone textbook and are unable to return it, you may purchase access to the new companion website separately. For more information, see the Product Guide.

I have a companion website access code. How do I redeem it?

To redeem your Lingco code, click here to set up an account or log in to Lingco. When prompted, select “Student,” and enter “Lingco Independent Learners” as your school. Next, enter the course code(s) that correspond to the textbook(s) you’re using:

Alif Baa: ec098d5
Al-Kitaab Part One: cfc7ed7
Al-Kitaab Part Two: 8abd268

Once you’ve entered the course code, you will be able to access the 14-day grace period of the course. To enter your unique access code and gain access beyond the 14-day grace period, click on the banner at the top of the Lingco course that says “Pay for [your textbook name]”.

If you ordered the textbook(s) with website, the unique access code will be found in the front of your book. If you purchased the website separately from the textbook, please use the code delivered to you via email from Hopkins Fulfillment Service or on your print scratch-off card.

Will I be able to use all of the companion websites’ functionality as an independent learner?

Yes. The companion websites include hundreds of activities, many of which provide automated feedback and/or sample answers. Some activities, however, may require manual grading by an instructor. In these cases, while independent learners can complete the activities, no instructor will provide any feedback on these activities.
