Effective Course

I bought a series of books with audio CD and CD-ROMs for language learning, to give to my friends for Christmas (English and Dutch) and they are happy with them. I also bought one for myself (Russian). My friend who received the Dutch course was very happy because it's not easy to find a course to learn Dutch through Italian. It will now be easier for her to communicate with her boyfriend. I must say that I find the courses very effective. Repeatedly listening to the cd you learn effortlessly and retain new words with the correct pronunciation!

Good Beginner Course

I have the Russian version and find it to be very helpful in learning this language. The software is easy to use, and well designed. The audio is crisp and clear and you can bounce around the program easily. The dictionary is quite detailed and gives you much more than just the Russian for the English or visa versa.

All in all, a good, well priced program.
