Well, they went out of print and Peter and Karen have licensed them back from Oxford University Press and published them themselves. I thought I’d talk to Peter to find out more. Our conversation wound up being rather like an ad for the videos. No, Peter did not pay me to make this. Ha! His videos just sound like a good deal to me.
And it raises the question of whether we can expect more teaching materials to come down in price in this rapidly changing ELT marketplace – especially if they are delivered electronically. Do any of your students have a digital course book for learning English yet? And would you like them to?
