I received this email from Cafe Lango which has taken on the remaining inventory of Audio Forum after the latter closed down last year.

Greetings!

Cafe Lango's best sale of 2010 is extended:
33% off everything and anything through January 31, 2011 with your exclusive discount code LEGACY.

Make 2011 the year you learn or improve another language with original format AudioForum language courses, like the classic full-length FSI courses. Since 1972, it's everything you need to learn a new language or improve your ability -- faster than you ever thought possible. Browse your options at right.

It is a New Year, and what a great time for a new language! Order now while these courses last and benefit from exclusive limited-time savings!



Due to popular demand, we are extending this exceptional offer. We understand that some people are happy to order using the internet, they just don't want to learn ONLY on a computer! These original format high-resolution courses on audio CD with the original .wav files may only be around for a limited time. There are even some cassette versions available for the courses you choose.
Sincerely,

Customer Service
Cafe Lango

PS: Remember: all our products are backed by our No-Risk Money-Back Guarantee.


Save 33% instantly! Use discount code LEGACY at checkout. You may use multiple times, and share with friends & family & colleagues, while supplies last, during the term of this offer. Offer Expires 1/31/11


While this discount is nowhere near the deeper discount offered by Audio Forum when it was liquidating last year, 33% off may not be too shabby for some people. A quick look at Cafe Lango's inventory suggests that Modern Russian Vols. 1 & 2 (normally $295 for each of 1 & 2), Finnish for Foreigners 1 & 2 (normally $225 for part 1, $95 for part 2), and Beginning Japanese Vols. 1 & 2 ($225 for vol. 1, $275 for vol. 2) among several other large "old-school" courses are available.

For the record, I am only passing this along to anyone on this forum looking for old-school courses (especially "Modern Russian"). I am not interested in the current promotion since I got what I wanted when Audio Forum was offering courses at 50% off or more.

$225 for Finnish for Foreigners vol. 1... surely it was never that expensive?

That's the regular price for a complete set of vol. 1 (i.e. textbook, workbook, drill book, 10 CDs/cassettes with all dialogues, readings and drills). Café Lango/Audio Forum, WorldLanguages.com and Amazon all use that price as the regular one for a brand-new set. You can sometimes find either the textbook or workbook sold for less (~ $30 US or 30 Euros), but you usually pay through the nose for audio separately.

In any case I got quite lucky and got vols. 1 & 2 when Audio Forum had a promotion of 50% off. In hindsight I should have waited until the liquidation sale when everything was going at 65% off.

This site looks good but sadly there are very few materials for Indian and South Asian languages. Nothing for Tamil, Kannada, Telugu, Marathi, Gujarati, Nepali, Sanskrit, Burmese... there is that Sinhala course which I already have...
