Not very good for learning in car
on November 14, 2016
Its a good system, but is more book than audio CD. I bought to learn Spanish on my 2 hour commute from work and back. It has been working, but very slowly (Hours and hours listening to the same 10 minutes of lesson). I got through the first disk pretty easily, but after that you really need the book to learn the other 8 CD's as understanding the voice actor gets more and more difficult, sometimes very hard to separate one word from another (they sound like one long word, even though they are two) . There are also some things that I don't like about this system, like they usually teach the meaning of multiple words after they have you speak them. So you have to listen to the same section many times to learn it.....many , many times (and can be very vague as to what the lesson expects you to learn in each section). If you are looking for a quick teaching so you can go on a trip, this would be good as it starts with many common phrases while traveling, which seems what this system is more about. Also if you know absolutely nothing about Spanish, this system will be hard to follow. It moves fast and doesn't spend much time on each phrase, word, or structure. I couldn't imagine trying to learn something like Korean with this method of teaching.
