A Great Start for 2004!

Last year I bought the earlier edition of TeachMe! Cornish and found it easy to use and was very pleased with the wide range of levels from absolute beginners upwards. However I have now got the updated version and it is even better! This has got to be the best buy for anyone considering learning this beautiful language. Currently there is nothing on the market to compete with it.

Rolls Royce of a product

My hobby is looking at languages and semantics. I must have about 30+ various language courses from Linguaphone to Teach Yourself and the Colloquial series.

In 25 years I have never come across such a wonderful language learning tools as the TeachMe series. The programme is so simple to use and allows you to be in control. The addition of the CD with the course materials was a brilliant move. I have a 2 hour drive into work each day and it is an ideal time to listen to languages!

Whoever, came up with the format is a winner. I hope that it will expand to include other languages inthe future. My family have groaned and moaned as I have told them next birthdays etc. will be TeachMe! CD Roms!

Thanks for such a wonderful product!
