Comments about German I-III:

Loved how the audio programmed made me respond more automatically. It required rapid response which did not let me hesitate and try to analyze before responding. This has really boosted my confidence. I have gone through programs I-IV 5 times now. And will continue to go over them - they are my fun time in the car when I drive alone every day. Wish there were more levels to go through!

Service and delivery comments:

I would like to see all the sentences in writing to look at after I have done the lessons to be sure I am learning it right and can also reproduce it correctly when I need to correspond. The reading booklets were more into giving lists of words. Give us more advanced German programs - like at least 5 and 6 if not more. I would really like medical problems covered to be safe while traveling, to be able to explain my medical conditions and understand what the doctor is saying to me.
