    "what is this?"

    it's like from a porn movie. background music also makes everything too difficult to be heard. the guy and the Russian female are like flirting during the whole audio. so funny. it's like a joke.

    "Excellent"

    I really liked this one best (out of all language audio I have used). The music seems to help with memorization and is quite enjoyable as well.

    "One of the better ones"

    Other than purchasing Rosetta stone if you are a serious learner this is excellent. Only wish AUdible had volume 2

    "again and again"

    like all language lessons you must review them over and over. This one I have listened many times and I'm still not bored with it. Language isn't easy for me, but at least this Earworms didn't bore me.

    "Pleasantly surprised !"

    I was almost put off by the previous reviewers but as the reviews of the other earworms products were generally good, I thought I'd give it a try.

    I have been listened to Volume 1 on my ipod and am already finding myself coming out with the phrases.
    Its really going well!

    The voices and music are very pleasant which helps to take your mind off trying too hard and the lady's accent and voice is pleasant. The rhythmic repetitions really help my to memorize the words and phrases.

    A great product!!!

    "So bad it's hillarious"

    Imagine a cheap, cheesy Moscow club, playing bad synth music that could be from the backing track of a CBBC documentary. Then imagine a sleazy man from Surrey flirting with a Russian girl who laughs at his bad jokes because she's after his money. Then imagine the acting, scripting and production values of a CBBC documentary.

    I love the idea of using music to aid learning, and if it actually worked it'd be possible to laugh through or ignore the cheesiness. For me at least, it didn't. They have the Russian first then the English, so my brain filters out what the Russian lass says, because when I hear it I have no idea what she's saying, then the sleazy Surrey man tapes over any lingering traces of memory for it that I might have. To be fair, the music rhythm thing kind of works - I have a really clear memory of Mr Woking saying "I would like..." "I would like..." in a clear south-east accent.

    If you're Russian, you want to learn English and you have a good sense of humour, you'll enjoy this and will probably learn a bit from it. I'm not convinced it works the other way around.
