Very quick start to German. These audio recordings allow you to learn as quickly or slowly as you like. Also, the way that it is presented allowed me to retain the skills much longer than I was able to using book or book-and-audio methods. Perhaps most importantly, by learning aurally and practicing orally I DEVELOPED VERY GOOD PRONUNCIATION.

Damien Del Russo, Dusseldorf, Germany

THE APPROACH IS THE BEST EVER! This is the best program available to learn Korean on the market today. I know because I have audited a dozen of them. It is very simple. Just play a lesson per day.

D. M. Rothschild, MA, United States

LEARNING LANGUAGES WAS NEVER THIS MUCH FUN… I would recommend this to all who would like to begin their study of the Japanese language… the learning approach is very easy to learn from, hear and repeat.

Christopher Muro, Pittsburgh, United States

I found the Portuguese course VERY EASY TO USE. I have other self-taught programs, but this was by far was the best. The speakers enunciated well and allowed you enough time to repeat the phrases without rushing. Using my walkman, I found it convenient to carry with me and listen. The key to this program is the repetition. I enjoy using it.

John Hugo., Burtonsville, United States

It's great! This audiobook made me and my little sister learn the basics of the French language. It's really effective. The learning approach works for both the young and the old. Now, I YEARN TO LEARN MORE.

Leah Nillas, Quezon City, Philippines

WOW, IT REALLY WORKS! Yes, it really works…If the first lesson gives me this fluency/confidence; it goes without saying that the rest will do the same. I started speaking in German with my friends. Buy it, listen to it and find yourself speaking in German.

Ik Soo Lim, Lausanne, Switzerland

What the Critics Have to Say

EXTREMELY ACCESSIBLE…the speakers have pleasant voices, each section within the lessons is short enough to hold our attention, and there is enough repetition to teach even those who consider themselves slow learners…The lessons are extremely thorough and easy to use-quite lively!

This is the easiest and simplest language method… OUTSTANDING!

There's a audio tutorial to suit every need…using a UNIQUE system [the] segments will have you carrying on simple conversations at the end of just four hours.
