How do I use my MultiROM?

Your MultiROM is both a CD-ROM (containing interactive activities) and an audio CD (containing listening material) on one disk.

  • To play recordings of songs and exercises in the book: use in your CD player. You can also use your computer (using software such as Windows Media Player) to access the listening material, but you will need to 'Exit' the interactive activities first.
  • To play interactive games: use in your computer.
