Earlier this year we launched part of the Coffee Break Spanish course for Kindle as a pilot. We’re delighted to announce that the Coffee Break Spanish and Coffee Break French courses will be available in full on Kindle on 15th August 2012. We’ve produced Kindle versions of all the lesson guides and each course is being made available in sixteen volumes with five lessons per volume. Each volume will cost just $4.99 USD (currently £3.11 in the UK Kindle Store and €3.50 in the EU stores). As an introductory offer the first volume will be just $2.99 USD (£1.86 / €2.60).
Please visit Radio Lingua at amazon.com, amazon.co.uk or amazon.de to find out more about our Kindle editions currently available. The full series will be released on 15th August. It is worth pointing out that due to the limitations of the Kindle, these ebooks do not include embedded audio clips: they are Kindle versions of the lesson guides which you can use to read the notes which accompany each lesson. There is also the possibility of using the Kindle Experimental software to listen to the audio file on your device while reading the book. This is explained in greater detail in each Kindle book.
Update: 15th August
We had hoped that everything would go according to plan with this but unfortunately Amazon are holding up the process. All the books are ready to be activated but we are just waiting on confirmation from Amazon that the final steps have been completed. We’ll update you again as soon as we have news from Amazon.
