The Adventures of Tintin, Volumes 1 and 2 (English)
The Adventures of Tintin adapts one of the world's best-loved characters into a extremely faithful and entertaining animated television series. A Canadian production broadcast in the U.S. on HBO, the series vividly captures the intrepid reporter and his colorful friends (including his dog, Snowy, the blustery Captain Haddock, the brilliant but absent-minded Professor Calculus, and the detective twins Thompson and Thomson) as they travel the world on adventures that mix action, mystery, and humor. Vol 1. includes Destination Moon, Explorers on the Moon, Land of Black Gold, Flight 714, The Black Island, King Ottokar's Sceptre, The Seven Crystal Balls, Prisoners of the Sun, The Shooting Star, and The Broken Ear; Vol. 2 includes The Crab with the Golden Claws, Tintin in Tibet, The Calculus Affair, Cigars of the Pharoah, The Red Sea Sharks, The Secret of the Unicorn, Red Rackham's Treasure, The Castafiore Emerald, and Tintin and the Picaros. Includes both French and English language tracks as well as French and English subtitles.
"The animated series perfectly captures the look of the books (although The Broken Ear, the book of which had the roughest art, has been smoothed out to look like the rest of the series), and each 42-minute episode has enough time to re-create the books' character and wit, if not the exact layout and pacing....Tintin fans will love reliving these adventures, and newcomers have a wonderful discovery awaiting them." - David Horiuchi
Integrated English DVD Course
Many attempts have been made to produce a fully comprehensive English language home study course. Those courses were based on the misconception that by listening to audio cassettes, watching vidotapes or studying workbooks, people would learn English. These methods have achieved only limited success. Recognizing that the best way to learn any language is by speaking it, the Integrated English course was developed. This interactive video course creates a continuous back and forth dialog between student and the video that simultaneously teaches the student to understand, pronounce, read and write English. Integrated English has been university-tested on students of different educational levels, and has proven to be more effective than the individual teacher to student method. Integrated English is the ultimate teaching tool for anyone interested in properly learning English. This course is designed to help Spanish speaking students learn the English language. Includes 24 lessons on 8 DVDs, with 3 Spanish workbooks.
