German Pimsleur

What made the experience of listening to German Phase 1, Unit 16-20 the most enjoyable?

It expanded on the previous books and provoked recall of words that might otherwise have been forgotten.

What does the narrator bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

The sounds of the words.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

No, Much easier to do a little at a time.

Any additional comments?

I am surprised that I remember the words so well.

Good program for speaking

The program emphasizes on speaking. But as the content gets more complicated, it would be better if the speaker could explain the grammar more
