The rate of speaking is too far fast for a beginner, difficult to understand and futher complicated because no pronunciation assistance or background is provided.
Phrases are read once and only once. Phrases consisting of more than five syllables are very difficult to pick apart. The Korean phrase for "What is your name?" would be very handy, but I'm still not able to discern what the speaker is saying. I think this would be a nice refresher to someone whose Korean had not been practiced in a while. Other than that, avoid this title.
I had to try "In-Flight Korean" myself. I did listen to it on my way to Korea, but I found it too frustrating to learn from. The pronunciation was too fast for an English speaker to be able to absorb. Nothing was repeated.
