PDF AND COMPANIONS don't download load

Any additional comments?

I love the energy and the motivation of the narrators especially Peter San, but PDF AND COMPANIONS don't download load. It's so frustrating to be ask to pay again for them and so many glitches with passwords. Kenjogo? Hajamay? Please fix companions and PDF. Hi?

Ok, but could be better

Ok, as it has some good vocabulary and explanations, but the way it is done makes it hard to learn much from the audiobook. Maybe fine if studying the PDFs at the same time. It would help to always give literal translations rather than changing the words and structure to English as that doesn’t help with understanding the Japanese words and sentence structure
