It was difficult to focus on and I felt like I learned very little from the experience. The music was a distraction and a detractor, as opposed to the claim it would make remembering easier. At points it overwhelmed the lesson itself.
First of all, lower the music volume and use more "defined" voices - Finnish is a very clear language, but the susurrus that this production gave made the natural rhythm more difficult to catch for me as a listener and learner.
Since this is not a fiction book, I cannot judge the narrator performance.
The background music.
I have been trying to learn Finnish from a variety of sources, but this has to be one of the weaker examples.
This is set of vocabulary lessons with smooth jazz playing in the background.
I expected that the words would be said in time with the music, but this was not the case.
