We've had our first week of Spanish. It's not so bad. We don't appear to be too far behind. Well, I am not too far behind, Jeff appears to be well ahead of what we are working on. Our instructor is young with an quirky sense of humor that promises to keep class interesting. The packet of required reading material which included, text books, lab manual, work book, and answer key was $200 at the bookstore. That's almost as much as it costs to take the class. So I just spent some time hunting down the pieces and we have the all the books coming separately to us from various places around the US for a total of $52.33 and that's with shipping. It makes me wonder how many student buy at full price. I guess there must be suckers out there.
