Now you can download Foreign Service Institute Mandarin Chinese course to your MP3 player or computer. Multilingualbooks.com announced today the release of new language-learning products for the iPod and other portable digital music players which make learning the important Mandarin Chinese language easier than ever.
The "On The Go" series features high-quality language-learning products in digital format, available either ready to load onto your own player or preloaded onto iPods. The "On The Go" series is currently available for Mandarin Chinese, Spanish, French, Arabic and many other languages. All of the courses in this series were digitally remastered for better sound clarity and come with the text of the course in PDF format.
"Never before could you carry an entire language course in your pocket. This is an exciting and underutilized application for these popular devices," says Multilingualbooks founder Ken Tomkins.
The Mandarin Chinese Foreign Service course is the latest offering in this exciting series. The entire course includes over 1,000 pages of text and 70 hours of audio. Normally this extensive course sells for $899, but with the efficiencies of the digital format, language learners are now able to buy the entire course for only $399, or level one for only $95.
Multilingualbooks has chosen the iPod for the preloaded device of the "On The Go" line. The iPod features 30 GB of storage, a 2.5-inch (diagonal) color display and up to 20 hours of rechargeable battery life. The device is small and lightweight at 4.8 ounces and 4.1 x 2.4 x .43 inches. "We think our customers will be very happy with the iPod. It's easy to use and sounds great," says Tomkins.
Founded in 1995 as one of the first online outlets for language materials, Multilingualbooks.com is a leading publisher and retailer of language-learning products.
