Learn to Speak German version 8.0

I purchased Learn to Speak German version 8.0 at a used book sale. I had previously purchased Learn to Speak French and was very happy with it, so excited about the chance to try this out for my son. The program installed without a glitch, the conversations and audio and voice recognition works, but when it comes to viewing the table of contents and actual progress, the screen doesn't download fully. I am unable to access any other learning activities for grammar, matching, etc. Is this due to the second-hand purchase, or is there something I can do to gain more access to the program's many useful features? Thanks for your help.

    Cleaning the disc (though it did look fine) seemed to allow more parts to open, but not all. Now I found a problem coming up each time the mike had to be used! We'll keep plugging away---enough of it works to get us going. If we can't get the microphone issue resolved I may be back. Meanwhile, thanks so much for your prompt reply. We made progress!

First ensure you purchased the full version and not just the demo, in which many features are non operative, in that case it will be normal.
Most probably the disk is dirty, defective or scratched. If it is dirty you can wash the cd in cold water (no soap or cleaning products), and then dry well with a soft cloth, taking care not to leave hairs or wet spots before trying again.

I want to get Study materials for higher secondary education. From where can I avail them?

There are many different routes that you may go to acquire your wanted books.

If there is something specific that you're looking for, try searching,, or craigslist. My assumption is you will be using these books in conjunction with another book. So, you can look for books in your desired field and there will be a whole slew of them.

If you are using this for just study materials (most books have sections of questions and answer along with focal points) I'd suggest to buy the previous edition of the book and not the most current. The previous edition is basically obsolete in any classroom but when I was in college, I made a mistake in my purchase and I got the previous edition. So I had to purchase one of the newest editions for a cd I believe. The books were nearly identical. But the price was much higher for the newest edition. Also, to save some more money, you can buy the international version that is the same exact book, but usually a paperback copy. International versions cannot be sold back to the book store.

You can also walk into a library that would have some textbooks. College libraries have those books as well, but many times they are rented for chunks of time. Lastly, a college book store would have used copies of books. I don't recommend this option if you are trying to pinch pennies.

I am trying to install 6.01 of learn to speak German. It worked fine on my old win 95 machine but doesn't recognize the systems on my xp machine, not even QT 7, and chrashed during install, locking up with...

It may not be compatible with XP. Look on the back of the case and check which OS it is for. Sometimes the websites that support these have a patch for when you upgrade. I have had this problem with some of my software every time I've upgraded Operating Systems.
