I am glad to be sharing more information with you all. I just wanted to pop in and tell you where you can find the exact materials used by the US Government to train their language career personnel. You can use your imagination to figure out what that means. Well here they are. They are a very full list of Foreign Service Institute (FSI) language courses.
These same materials have been repackaged and sold countless times and I see them in many bookstores repackaged as "original" material. I was trained by the Government myself using both the Korean and Thai courses from this list. They look so familiar when I look at them. They are a goldmine and they are yours. Have fun guys! Next I'll have some information about using mnemonics to help you learn vocab effortlessly.
