No attempt made to deliver for a listening audience. I almost wonder if it were machine read... some sentences are jibberish as if the reader is just reading cells from a table. And the content is all over the place

I really like the Pimsleur method - it's a fantastic use of commute time in the car!

Note YOU NEED TO ACCESS THE REFERENCE PDF in ACROBAT!

Others have reported that it has only the title page. This is only if you use some other PDF viewer! I had the same problem, and audible's awesome chat line sorted it for me!

I found Pimsleur's Portuguese course to be excellent. I progressed rapidly.

This Arabic course is a lot less well presented. The speakers speak too quickly, forcing me to have to keep repeating sections to get it clear. There are few if any explanations around why phrases and sounds are used
