    "Great Program with flawed execution"

    The first several units of German Phase 1 were excellent. As you get further along, things get more complex as you would expect, but the dead time allowed for you to come up with an answer does not increase. Of course you can hit pause, but while you're driving that's not very convenient.
    Also, noun/pronoun/adjective declension is a concept completely foreign to English speakers and hard to learn. Early on, the program did a good job of clarifying endings in phrases such as "mit meiner Familie". Later in the program though the clarification went away. With the German speakers increasing in speed, endings "e", "er", and "en" become hard to distinguish.
