I visited the Green Island landfill recycling shop the other day. There I came across several interesting language-learning resources for pennies in the pound (to be precise, $1 each).
There was a set of 1000 Spanish vocabulary flash cards, a music book of Spanish songs with lyrics, and, finally, a Linguaphone course. ‘May I help you with your Japanese?’ said the sticker. It came complete with 18 tape cassettes and 3 books.
The interesting thing about last item it that it the explanations are in Korean. So along with improving my Japanese I could learn Korean at the same time!
