Hooray! This project is fully funded

Hello, I am a high school Spanish teacher at a failing school in Manhattan where I teach beginner and intermediate level Spanish classes. Most of my students are very poor minorities and come from extreme circumstances and poverty. Despite the many difficulties in their lives, most of the students have definite plans for their future and realize the importance of learning another language to better their lives and enrich their employment opportunities. When I first started my job, I had no Spanish text books and had to come up with all of my own materials. This was quite a challenge because I didn't have access to the funds for quality products. Eventually, I was lucky enough to have some books funded for my class. With these books, I would love to have the accompanying CDs that go along with the text book to enrich the lessons. In each chapter of the Avancemos 1 Book, there is a plethora of dialogues and conversations that my students need to hear. I believe that it is really important for the students to hear other speakers of Spanish besides their teacher. I think that these listening activities would really spice up my Spanish class and make my students even more interested in bettering their Spanish. I know they would be very enthusiastic to hear these CDs. Thank you very much for your consideration.
