Spanish Programmatic Course Vol. 1 for iPhone and iPad

Learn Spanish the proven way—just like a diplomat!

Educational app developer Selectsoft is pleased to announce the release of the first Audio-Forum® language learning apps for iPhone and iPad. Audio-Forum is one of the most trusted names in premium foreign language learning, beginning as an audio-recording production house for the Foreign Service Institute and then becoming the first publisher of FSI foreign language courses for the general public. Now, with the release of the Spanish Programmatic Course Vol. 1 app and the upcoming release of additional levels, the quality full-course content of Audio-Forum's foreign language titles is available at last in a fully mobile form.

Spanish Programmatic Course Vol. 1 by Audio-Forum covers the content of the original FSI course, and additional cultural information, grammatical explanations and drills. The program is carefully designed to help new learners memorize and practice each lesson to encourage a complete mastery of the material. The text provides support to the audio by providing explanations of points of grammar and usage. However, with an emphasis on the audio content, users of the app will find it easy to review lessons on-the-go.

With the Spanish Programmatic app, users can learn Spanish in as little as 25 minutes a day. Unlike other foreign language course materials, Audio-Forum's language programs are specifically designed for self-instructional use without the aid of a teacher. The app is a full-course PDF audio-book, allowing users to listen to the audio with or without the text, quickly navigate to lessons from the table of contents, and bookmark specific pages. The audio/text method has been developed with U.S. State Department's Foreign Service Institute authors and instructors specifically for diplomats, and is a proven way to achieve fluency.
