Modern Languages: Site Licenses

Digital site licenses for MP3 downloads and site use

The audio for all the Foundations languages courses is available digitally for download from our website in MP3 file format. There is a charge for this facility. Click here to find out more and to purchase. Our digital licence allows distribution of the audio to students in the following ways:
Simplest form:
Once you have downloaded the MP3 files, you can make them available to your students through your own intranet system, and you can allow students (within your institution who have a copy of the associated book) to download the MP3 files from your own site. For Spanish 2 and Italian 2 you can also convert the files to CD-compatible format and burn CDs for your students (such CDs must not be sold for profit and must bear the title of the book, the author and the copyright line from the book). The conversion process from MP3 file to CD is simple using freely available software such as that at: http://www.apple.com/itunes/

If there are difficulties:
If there are still access problems for your students, you can offer to students (within your institution who have a copy of the associated book) access to our site too using the same password (which you are sent on purchasing the licence). They can then download the MP3 files themselves for their own use either in MP3 format or to make their own CDs (such CDs must not be sold for profit and must bear the title of the book, the author and the copyright line from the book). The conversion process from MP3 file to CD is simple using freely available software such as that at: http://www.apple.com/itunes/ Students will be very familiar with such technology.

Cassette site licenses for Spanish 2 and Italian 2

Included in the price of the cassettes that accompany each of the courses is a site licence. We are happy for institutions to copy tapes to loan out to students, or to use as class sets, and we make no charge for permission to do this. In order to protect the authors’ contributions, we do ask that you ‘register’ with us. You will find a tear-off slip on the insert card of cassette one. In order to validate your licence you must complete and return this to us. We will then send you an official licence(s) for your records. 

We do not allow digitalisation by institutions of the cassettes (see above for digital versions). 

Restrictions: Licensees may duplicate Foundations Languages cassettes for use by teachers and students belonging to their institution who have a copy of the workbook. Duplicate cassettes may not be sold for profit. Cassette cases must include the title and copyright notice carried on the original.
