I wonder Amy, if audio tapes wouldn't be the best bet here. Of course
the video idea is the nicest, but I can see that that idea might not make
the money to cover the expenses.

You wouldn't have to make a lot in advance, just as needed. The essence
of the lesson would be provided even though the ambience of the
surroundings isn't.

It might not make a ton of money, but may well be worth the efforts
needed to put the idea into practice.

I know that you guys put a lot of effort into this activity and you're all to
be commended.
