Hi Éric,

FSI POLISH FAST
Thank you very much for uploading the FSI Polish FAST audio. If there are problems with the files, let me know and I will resend them. Also, the credit for this project should be shared with NEUMANC, as it was during his request for the old Linguaphone Polish audio that we began a discussion of the FSI Polish FAST audio and its availability on the FSI-Languages database.

FSI JAPANESE FAST
I have located a source for the FSI Japanese FAST audio and will contact you when I receive it, perhaps in about two weeks.

GRACIE MILLE!
Thanks, once again, for all the admirable work that you've done on the FSI-Languages database. Frankly, I think that you should charge a small, one-time, user fee for lifetime access to the files. Mais là, ça c'est une autre histoire!

UPDATE ON THE FSI JAPANESE FAST AUDIO FILES:

I received the "FSI Japanese" files today that I had ordered on EBay. Unfortunately, they are an exact copy of the files that are presently posted on the FSI-Language-Courses website. So, they do not include the audio for the FSI Japanese FAST course, after all.   I imagine that the "reseller" simply downloaded them from the FSI database and posted an advertisement on EBay. I'm disappointed, but not all that surprised, as we've seen this type of "scam" in the past.

There is another "reseller" on EBay that has an offer for "FSI Japanese". They, too, are offering an exact copy of the files that are presently posted on the FSI-Language-Courses website. In addition, they include a copy of the "FSI Japanese Basic Course" in their package. However, if you open the link, further down the page, they display the cover of "Beginning Japanese, Part 1 and 2" by Elenor Harz Jorden. The textbooks are still for sale on the Yale University website as well as on Amazon, EBay, and elsewhere, which suggests to me that they are not in the public domain. Here's the LINK to offer on EBay which, interestingly enough, seems to include the audio files to the "Beginning Japanese" course:

FSI Basic Japanese (sic)

You win some, you lose some.

However, these textbooks (i.e. the Jorden ones) are "available" on ERIC - though the PDF is pending restoration, so
that kind of sounds to me like they are public domain. Audio-lingual Japanese courses are like gold dust, so could
be worth tracking down!
