I had to go look! It would seem there is an application CD and one CD per level (for a total of five), plus two CDs that are audio MP3 companions, one for Levels 1-3 and one for Level 4. If I haven't misplaced anything, that is what you get.
Well. I didn't order the download. I ordered and rated the actual cd's. so if you order what I rated, then yes it comes in a interesting box (kind of a puzzle to get open) inside is a pair of headphones and everything needed to install it; including all 5 cd's.
Hi I gifted this to my grandson in Puerto Rico. I'm in CA. He loves, loves it, but I think there are 8 CDs not 5. He was brushing up on his spanish for a job he is coming to next week in San Diego. He loved it. I hope you do, too. It seems there is a pprice difference from 5 cds to 8 cds but he said it was ell worth it.
