I didn't concentrate on Spanish because of the wide availability of Spanish teaching materials and books here in the US. Most of the books, software, etc listed can be picked up in many different languates. The exception would be a few of the Latin items: Minimus and the I Am Reading Latin Series. I'm sure this list will be added to as favorites emerge that were not put back on the shelf and as suggestions are made by others.
