    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    The lessons are fast paced, but there is a LOT of useless chatter between the "instructor" and the student? that does NOT need to be there. They are trying to sound like 'this is such a fun thing to do' Not a fan of asking "don't you do it like this?" Oh yeah, you can do it like that, well sometimes, maybe, etc.

    I want the instructors in an audio book not to waste a lot of time with gibberish or maybe you can do that "I think so". I want the instructors to "know" how to use the language.


    What was most disappointing about Innovative Language Learning’s story?

    Too much idle chatter not related to the actual words you are trying to learn.
    The breakdown of words into syllables that included sounds that were not there when spoken normally. You can't fool me. The sound is not there at all when you say the word, then when broken down extra syllables show up? it's either there or not. Like saying "Can't" = "Kanatai Nattau Tae." No it doesn't and you can hear the difference.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Peter Galante and Naomi Kambe ’s performances?

    Not really. Maybe a story, but not a lesson.


    Any additional comments?

    This may work for some people. I was disappointed with the overall way the lesson was handled. Voices were ok, but I don't want to have to remember parts of a lesson the instructors weren't quite sure of or the banter back and forth. Learning a language it difficult enough without all the extra chatter.
