A great learning audible

It was a fantastic audio book to listen to and learn the language. Spoke wasn't really joking when he said that without memorizing anything, you should learn vocabulary and grammar.

A great informative audible for us!

The stories were interesting although a little challenging for a beginner. However, there’s an opportunity to add to vocabulary with the help index to each story.
