This stand-alone, all-audio course can be used by those who have little or no knowledge of the language, by those who want to learn or brush up basic conversation skills, and by more advanced learners who require extra audio material to complement their current courses. The ten units or 'conversations' cover the situations you are most likely to find yourself in. They are divided into two parts, with a dialogue in each part.

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

Why on earth is a pdf file with printers register markings included? There is no way I can print this and make any use of it. Thus, the low ratings.

Set in the intriguing Scotland of 200 years ago, the third installment in the romantic adventures of Jamie and Claire is as compelling as the first. Now that Claire knows Jamie survived the slaughter at Culloden, she is faced with the most difficult decision of her life. She aches to travel back through time again to find the love of her life, but, in order to do that, she must leave their daughter behind.

What made the experience of listening to Voyager the most enjoyable?

Basically the reason I love Audible - the ability to get through a lengthy tome while driving my car.

Have you listened to any of Davina Porter’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

At first, I wasn't sure I would enjoy listening to a female voice interpreting both male and female characters. But Davina Porter proved to have an amazing ability to portray both male and female voices and to develop a specific character for each. I'm hooked!

Imagine, just 12 weeks from now, having the lean, healthy body you've always wanted and not having to turn your life upside down to get it. Imagine having the energy to be at your peak from dawn to dusk, having the confidence to do all the things you've been putting off, having the certainty to make the right decision at the right time, and knowing that you really do have the power to change, not just your body, but anything in this world you set your mind to.

What would have made Body for Life better?

A real 12-week exercise and fitness plan. This recording only contained testimonials and sales pitches for product. Very disappointing.

Any additional comments?

Beware - he just wants you to purchase his supplements.
