What a fantastic way to learn some basic German. The English and German speakers' voices speak in cadence with background jazz tunes that keep the learning fun and well paced. The phrases have mix-n-match appeal, so I've been able to extend my learning beyond what was explicitly taught.
Having listened to other samples with silence in the background, I can't say enough about the value of the musical background to help pass the time while working through the exercises.
The downloadable pdf document is nearly 100% matched to the dialog.
I am SO looking forward to Rapid German 2 and 3, which I hope will be available soon.
