    I'm quite disappointed with this course. The vocabulary is set out in much-too-long and rather repetative lists, with no relevant exercizes. The tapes are slow-paced and useless without the book in front of you (even then, there are unclarities). I was overwhelmed with loads of vocabulary before any immediately useful vocabulary or conversational exchange was introduced.

    I was really not thrilled with course. I like to study language while I'm driving but the way the course was set up made it impossible to understand the words without the aid of the coursebook. Also, the groupings of the study words seemed random.
