About Us


Audio-Forum started as an audio-recording production house for the U.S. State Department’s Foreign Service Institute before becoming the first publisher of FSI foreign language courses for the general public. For 40 years, Audio-Forum has been the original and most trusted source for Foreign Service Institute study courses. In addition to FSI courses, Audio-Forum also offers more quality full-length foreign language-learning programs in more languages. We have over 500 titles across over 60 different languages, plus a range of foreign language software and audio titles from our sister publishers, Selectsoft and Selectmedia. Over the years, countless customers have confidently learned a new language with Audio-Forum foreign language courses.

In July 2012, Audio-Forum was acquired* by MPS Multimedia, Inc., a veteran of publishing on media. For 20 years, MPS has been committed to educational publishing—especially foreign language learning. We hold very high standards when it comes to publishing, presentation and packaging. Besides offering Audio-Forum in the familiar Book, CD Audio, CD Audio/Book, MP3 Audio, MP3 Audio/Book and DVD formats, we are also expanding the Audio-Forum line to CD-ROMs, MP3 downloads, and PC downloads. We’ve updated the packaging and digitally re-mastered audio to make the Audio-Forum foreign language courses an even better value than ever. And of course, Audio-Forum remains the gold standard for FSI courses, providing additional content, professionally printed books, quality packaging, and a fantastic overall foreign language learning experience.

With our background in distribution, you can trust that Audio-Forum will always have products listed on our website in-stock and ready to ship. If a product is temporarily out of stock, it won’t appear on our website. No more frustration with unfilled orders, unexpected “out-of-stock” notices, or waiting weeks for a back-ordered product. Founded in the 1970s, Audio-Forum is a division of MPS Multimedia Inc., a privately-held consumer software company in business since 1992. MPS Multimedia acquired the Audio-Forum trademark and the foreign language courses published under the Audio-Forum imprint.
