This is great for just a quick introduction to the language and if you want to pick up common phrases/sentences. The draw backs are it's not very in depth and the pace is slow (but for good reason; it's to give the listener plenty of time to repeat) and the speakers are very monotone, which can make it seem boring and like it's taking even longer. A way to cope with it is that I sometimes read through the section of the book I'm going to listen to and then listen to the CD later while I do other things, such as exercise, cook, housework, etc. Anyone who is looking for an in depth book that breaks it down piece by peice and explains the nitty gritty of it, this is not for you. However, if you're looking for something quick that will help you pick up common phrases quickly, this is a good choice.
