What kind of books and tapes do they produce?
Home > Guide > FAQ > Programs > Books & Tapes

Both of these Institutes make books and tapes, some of which excellent, based on audio lingual principles. The problem is that there's absolutely no coherence whatsoever between the programs and even within sometimes. The most popular programs are re mastered and sold commercially, but if you have to buy direct you can be disappointed at the mere look of your course. But don't be fooled, within those xerox copies of typewritten pages from the 60's with no illustrations nor colors lie treasuries for dedicated language learners. In extra, you get the privilege of some insight into the interests of some american diplomats in the 60's : "Quién llamó a la policía? - Yo, señor. Los manifestantes están rodeando el edificio" (FSI Spanish, programmatic course volume II).
