I have finally been able to get in contact with Dasha’s English teacher, LeNell Hill, and she said Dasha does need the 2nd edition of the English Essentials book. Right now Dasha has the 1st edition. Apparently the 2nd comes with a different CD that they will be using and some of the chapters are different. She is going to help Dasha use the 1st ed. until she gets the 2nd ed. Do you know if there are any up in the book room or are you going to have to order it? If you need me to do anything else to help with this just let me know. Thanks for all you do to get the books taken care of.
