Yes. My problem is that, unlike the CD version, there are no chapters - just one huge audio file, so if I want to repeat a chapter, I have to use the slider in iTunes to try to find the beginning - what a pain!
This is a good "listen and repeat" and I have used language 30 for other languages in the past. However, they all had tracks so you could isolate or skip chapters.
Should have separate files or some kind of markers for the sections. I tried to see if I could chop it up into sections with audacity, but of course, since it's an audible file, audacity can not open it.
NO! It's a language course! I want the ability to repeat a given chapter several times to memorize it and practice speaking without trying to find it with the iTunes slider!
"NO CHAPTERS= NO GOOD."
There's just one long audio track. Unless you're a genius you'll find it difficult to skip back and replay parts.
No, just made them a lot better by comparison.
It defeats learning a language by assuming everyone can withhold the vocabulary and pronunciation contained in a 1 hour 30 minute track.
Anger, sadness and disappointment. With a heavy hint of frustration that this can be sold in this way.
Do not download it. Get it in another format NOT this Audible version.
"Best intro audio course I've found for Romanian"
Efficient, relevant, good value.
Not enough time is allowed from giving the English phrase for you to try to anticipate the Romanian translation. Such anticipation is much better for developing your memory of the foreign phrase than merely hearing the Romanian phrase. The "Learn in Your Car" and Pimsleur materials do this much better. If there is ever a re-issue, longer pauses should be put in. Pimsleur (which is, however, much more expensive) also has much more repetition, which is also good for committing to memory. And a minor gripe: the materials assume that only US English is relevant; mostly this doesn't matter but international listeners need to be alert to the places where US usage is eccentric.
I have no idea what the previous reviewer is referring to. At least on the Android version, there are perfectly good chapter divisions, so you can go straight to any chapter you like. The only hitch is that the audio has to be playing already when you select the chapter, otherwise nothing seems to happen (at least on my machine).
