I tried several titles in the Teach Yourself Conversation series--Russian, Arabic, Mandarin Chinese, and Turkish--and none of the CDs worked properly. The recordings have much dead air, that is, you get all the words they promise you, but with a lot of stop-and-go so that you are not hearing anything at conversational speed. This is a problem in the recording itself, not an intentional pedagogical tool. It's unfortunate, because it's a unique idea for accelerating language acquisition, and I hope Teach Yourself will recall all the titles for testing and put them out again with top sound quality. I also noticed typos in the Turkish language booklet as well--as if the Turkish conversation had been done in a word processor program that could not properly decode the special characters of the Turkish-Roman alphabet. This makes me think TY rushed to get these titles out without doing proper quality control on them.
