    WordPlay: 550and Words You Need to Know

    The sketches used to teach the words are acted out like cartoons. The character's voices are obnoxious. A loud bell or buzzer rings before each word that is being taught. I had to quit listening, because it gave me a headache. The words are good, but the audio is horrible.
