Robotic Narration

I am a Fluent German speaker trying to acclimate to the Swiss dialect.

This is a matter of personal preference but presenter makes the lesson unbearable for me to listen to. I have tried several times to listen to this lesson but the robotic presentation completely negates my will to listen and learn.

I hope other people have better luck.
