Organizations and Instructors with the Original Course Kit

Welcome back!

As you know, Spanish that Works™ was formerly sold as a course kit, reproducible on a per-copy license basis. 

Spanish that Works for You is a course text workbook with all the basic vocabulary and structures that are ESSENTIAL to Spanish (book, where, is, etc.).  The SPECIFIC vocabulary words (circulation desk, homework, driver's license, chicken soup) are on pull-out reference sheets.  The course text workbook may be purchased through and, or on short-run order through The Learning Light (volume discounts apply).  With the new technology and volume discount, the course text workbook may be printed and shipped to you for less expense and hassle than it will probably take you to make the copies. Then you only have to make copies of the supplemental handouts, flashcards, sentence builders, and optional CD.

Organizations and instructors who purchased the reproducible kit in the past may continue to pay the license fee (now reduced to $10 per copy, including the audio CD) or may switch to the new model.  

You do not need to re-purchase the supplemental handouts if you already own the kit; just request the updates and we will send them to you free of charge.

Depending on your situation, you may prefer to keep using the original model, or switch to the new one.  You can email us at or call toll free 1-866-391-8901 and we will help you figure out what will work best for you!
