Each ImmersionPlus program consists of a variety of entertaining dialogues introduced briefly in English, and then spoken entirely in the target foreign language. The vignette is first heard at a normal conversational rate, then at a slower rate to aid comprehension. The same dialogue is then repeated at the normal conversational rate used by native speakers.

The audio and idea are great, and it does benefit the individual trying to progress from intermediate to advanced ability in German language comprehension. I note that the standard,i.e. complete version available from the publisher, includes a printed German to English translation. Such a translation would be helpful here and should be provided in either text or spoken format with the download. If you are serious about improving in German language comprehension, consider the version available from the publisher.
This is the best language instruction I've found for those of us who are well past the beginner/intermediate stage but not exactly fluent, either. My only wish is that there were more editions to download.
You learned German in school and it's been XX years since you had to crank it up... this will remind you and renew your investment in the language. You'll hear conversations about all kinds of everyday stuff, with no English help except for a few words to introduce the general subject. That's good! Set your chosen digital device to wake you up puzzling this stuff out every day. If you need to brush up on more than one language, check out the other "Immersions" and experience the same conversation in many languages!!!
