The FSI Czech course is online at the Education Department's site:

http://www.eric.ed.gov/ERICWebPortal/contentdelivery/servlet/ERICServlet?accno=ED350834

Can't vouch for the quality of the scanning, though.

This site includes a lot of language learning material: Peace Corps training manuals, textbooks for a Ukrainian course, and many others. The scans range from adequate to unreadable. I;mputting together a list, and I'll see if I can't post it up here when it's ready.

I'm not sure what exactly you have in mind. Do you want to post links to the appropriate areas on ERIC or do you want gdfellows to eventually download those files from ERIC and then post them here as independent .pdf files?

If the .pdf files are already at ERIC, it may be better just to put links to them at ERIC if gdfellows agrees to it. I don't see the point of duplicating the posting of ERIC's .pdf files as is for downloading on this site because of the limit on bandwidth from gdfellows' ISP.
 
I'm sure that many people download the stuff that has already been provided here and the bandwidth use of this site will only go up as more courses come on board. If the forums are any indication, the bandwidth use could take off even more once FSI Spanish gets completed or if FSI Japanese were to ever get posted.
 
If scans of ERIC's .pdf files were to be provided here for download, that would needlessly push bandwidth use higher in my view. This may force gdfellows to reconsider shutting down the website at certain times every month as he had mused when bandwidth use first started to get out of hand in late August.

Well... send a PM to gdfellows and see what happens.
 
I somehow got the impression that you proposed getting the .pdf files here as is for downloading as opposed to links. My mistake.
