Other telecourses are broadcast as part of our regular daytime schedule during much of the year; for example, ESL and foreign language courses such as CONNECT WITH ENGLISH, FRENCH IN ACTION, and DESTINOS.

These series make wonderful resources to enrich high school and college-level curricula...in the classroom, for home-schoolers, or as enrichment "homework". The telecourses are also a great excuse to convene a study group for self-enrichment.

There is a long list of telecourses that are available to Idaho Public Television from PBS Adult Learning Service.
