About the CD's:
  • On each CD, I say all the sounds, words and sentences.

  • These CD s also feature dialogs, in which the student learns the part of one speaker and I am the other speaker on the CD.
  • On the CD s, I begin the conversation and space is given on the CD for the student to respond to my questions; thus, creating a dialog between the student and myself. Afterwards, the student and I exchange dialog parts. Hence, these CD s are interactive.
  • Each program number on the CD's can be programmed on any CD player to repeat as many times as the student desires.
