Brush Up on Your Foreign Lanuage Skittles!

Brush Up on Your Foreign Lanuage Skittles!

Annenberg Media, the makers behind many foreign lanuage "tele-courses" that you may have seen in high school or college, offer many of those foreign language videos online streaming for FREE. That includes the entire courses for Destinos (Spanish), Fokus Deutsch (German), and French in Action! They also have videos from their series on Teaching Foreign languages there, also free.

These are the same programs that they still play on PBS stations, but all in one place, ready to stream just for you. The workbooks and texts are as costly as ever, but it is still a good way to brush up on your skills.

The link says you are required to sign up to view the VOD, but I've been able to play it without registering...

By the way, does anyone still have their workbooks from Destinos? Used or otherwise? I used to have it and the workbook for the second series Nuevos Destinos but I recycled them some time ago; my husband is trying to learn Spanish and I'm working on finally being brave enough to speak it, so having something to work with would be immensely helpful. The two workbooks that go with the series would be over $100 American, something that's just not in my budget.
