Our subscribers say:

For somebody who can set to and teach himself much of the language, but cannot then understand the spoken word, your programme is outstanding.  It is also much better than the recordings that come with text books since the topics are interesting and varied.

Well done to those who do the recordings and who enunciate so clearly.
