I'm -- I mean -- a "friend" is keen on buying a set, but the laerning will need to be basically osmosis. Maybe if "my friend" were to swallow them, the information would stick? Are they flavoured?

Hmmm... is this offer still up?
They shall grow not old
As we that are left grow old
Age shall not weary them
Nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun
And in the morning
We will remember them

Just tried sending an PM here on Forumosa, but it keeps sitting in the "outbox" folder instead of showing up as "sent" - no idea whats up. Anyway, let's see what happens :)

Hey, I live in Taipei at the moment and I would also like to buy all the sets of the Silkworm Series.
Can I buy them in some local store?

Are they OOP?

Does anyone know a alternativ set of flashcards, either modeled on the Visual Audio books or the vocabulary for the TOP?

I got a reply to my PM. I understood it like the flash cards are on hold for a while, an update will be posted here once they are available again. I hope this is soon :)

These cards are now discontinued. We had some problems with processing the data for the revised cards, and there are a number of options available on the web and on various smartphone devices which offer more flexibility and power. I personally use Pleco on the iPhone. Sorry for the inconvenience!
