In the above spectrum, Living Language Complete edition falls somewhere between Beginner and mid Intermediate level. So I would recommend this for people who are at beginner or lower/ mid intermediate level. But if you are at upper intermediate or advanced level, then there are plenty of other living language resources that would be of more value for money.
The three parts has a book and three CDs each, totaling to three books and nine CDs. It also has an extra notebook for you to take notes which I think was completely unnecessary.
It teaches you vocabulary, grammar, and how to build phrases and sentences. It also has conversations from time to time but unlike other Living Language materials, there aren't pauses for you to repeat. I was expecting more conversations.
To sum up, it does teach a variety of things and I do think it will be helpful for students at beginners and intermediate level but Living Language should seriously stop calling it the complete edition.
So I decided I would offer this product as an end-of-year gift to my top student. I've never had any problems with the product. Surprisingly, there was a fluke with the product I ordered--one of the nine CDs was missing. Since I had just arrived in West Africa, I knew that an Amazon exchange was out of the question, so I emailed LL directly. Within hours I had a response with various options, from mailing the missing CD to accessing the missing audio via MP3 to accommodate my international status. I chose to have the CD mailed. It was an incredibly fast, simple and pleasant customer service experience! I'm looking forward to my next LL product when I change countries this fall!

This method is planned to teach English as a Foreign language. It is very useful to teach English through dialogs. You have lots of grammar exercises and vocabulary builders too. You can improve your students pronunciation with the 9 CDs in three different levels. You can practice your English by yourself too, if you follow the instructions which are presented in several languages.
