German courses in Germany for children?

I'm hoping to visit German or Austria in the summer of 2011 and would like my two children, aged five and eight, to enrol in a language course while we're there. The Internet isn't turning up much, at least on English language searches. Any ideas/recommendations for schools/locations would be gratefully received.

Teaching the Teachers

I'm in Spain and have been asked to give summer courses in English for academic purposes to university researchers and teachers of engineering. Apart from "English Academic Vocabulary in Use" (CUP), which I used last year - it's good - do any MeFites have any tried and tested recommendations for books and other materials that might be suitable? Amazon is great, but too often you can't get a feel for the book.

Firefox in English

I want to download Firefox in English. But I live in Spain and it automatically downloads in Spanish, giving you no option to alter language during setup. I know they only want to help - but... any ideas about how to keep my FF in English?

New Spanish Language DVDs?

I write a monthly article on Spanish-language DVDs to be released in English-speaking territories. Where, on the Net or elsewhere, I could find such DVD listings without trawling through ALL the DVD releases for a particular month, as for example at www.moviemail.co.uk?
