It’s Raining Downloads!

Recent unscientific studies have shown that, while language courses may not grow on trees, they can fall from the sky.

Earlier this year, Multilingual Books gave away free language downloads to U.S. military personnel across the globe. This month we’re expanding the giveaway to include libraries. At least 20,000 free language courses, valued at $1,000,000, are on offer to libraries around the world.

The downloads offered include the comprehensive Foreign Service Institute language courses, the popular Linguaphone language courses, and the renowned Platiquemos Spanish course. To see a full list, click here. Each library is eligible for up to $1,000 in free downloads.

Sound like a good deal? It is.

So, if you’re a library, all you need to do is e-mail us at sales@multilingualbooks by June 30, 2012. Let us know who you are, where you’re planted, and why you think language products are the best thing since the invention of umbrellas.

(And if you’re not a library, but there is a special library in your life, send it a long-overdue fan e-mail and include a link to this post.)
