Based on the highly successful intensive weekend courses run by the Language Immersion Institute at New Paltz, New York, this new series offers highenergy communicative audio programs that help learners acquire a rapid proficiency in the language of their choice. Focusing on the ability to hold realworld conversations, the program's engaging story line - told through dialogues that follow a group of friends who travel abroad - prepares students for such practical communication topics as greetings and introductions, farewells, talking about themselves, understanding directions, going shopping, using time and dates, and many other situations commonly encountered by travelers. The clear, uncluttered course book also provides extensive cultural guidelines, while three lively audio CDs engage the learner's vocal participation. Henry Urbanski series editor, is a distinguished service professor at SUNY, New Paltz, and the founder and director of the Language Immersion Institute, which has taught more than 36,000 professionals, businesspeople, travelers, teachers, and students over the past 20 years.
