Very Easy to Use

I bought this because my wife and I decided we wanted to learn a second language for ourselves to use.
The software is so very, very easy to use and really helps you to learn fast. My wife used it for about a
week and by the end of that week she was teaching me words and phrases. Highly recommend this
software to anyone interested in learning a second langauge!

Excellent Language Software

This course is excellent. It is easy to use, helps you to stay organized and on track and the lessons are in small enough segments to allow for easy retention.

Really learning -> Quite surprised

I worked quite a lot with the course. I lost interest after a while so I stopped for a couple months. I then decided to give it another try and was surprised at all the stuff I remembered. I think I'll stick with it this time.
