GREAT COURSES

Those do sound great! Where do you take them?

The Great Courses is part of The Teaching Company, an online retail site
http://www.thegreatcourses.com/
You can either download a course, which is slightly less expensive, or you can order DVDs with the download also included which is what I do.

The courses are pretty expensive, but they regularly have huge sales so that a course which can normally be over $200 is $69. If you start using them, never pay full price. Be patient and the price will come down at least temporarily. And once you order, you can receive a catalog. Lauren & I tear out the pages of the courses we want and then wait for the right price before ordering.

Also, the course range from 6-30 minute to 24-30 minutes to 36-30 minute episodes, naturally with a corresponding range in price. If you find something interesting, check the reviews. In this case, they really are helpful.

Hope that helps.
