the pronunciation is off and the phases are not useful?
This is a great way to increase your vocabulary after learning the basics with a German language CD. Love it.
Taught be a bunch of stuff I didn't quite have a handle on, but the re-reads that didn't get edited out, are quite annoying.
I've purchased several language tapes/programs in several languages and I find this one to be remarkably effective. Well worth the investment.
Terrible. It is listening to a dictionary being read. Get the Learning Spanish in Your Car series instead - it at least keeps you awake.
I enjoyed the book and learned somethings. The reader was very good so it made it easy to listen to.
