4.0 out of 5 stars Good CDs, must be used with book, December 19, 2009
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Colloquial Tamil: The Complete Course for Beginners (Colloquial Series) (Audio CD)
The CDs are meant to be used alongside Asher's Colloquial Tamil Book. You can use the book alone, but there is no way that you can use the CDs alone. The CD recordings play the conversations in the book, but won't translate for you. You should have the text in front of you as you read along.

The exercises and recordings of exercises do not always match up one-to-one. This is not a big problem, but it is why I brought the score down to a 4 star.

I am told that the pace is more or less accurate for a Tamil conversation, and it is very fast, hard for a beginner to understand. You will want to pause and replay over and over again.

Overall, I think the CDs are a good bonus to making the Asher book very useful. I purchased the book new and the CDs used to save a little money.
