I thought this one was pretty good, other than the fact that at the beginning they keep telling you to pause the CD in order to respond--that's kind of distracting and impractical to do while driving. But it's easy enough to repeat the lessons over and over until you've got things down. My only other complaint is that every now and then the speakers are hard to distinguish, so the conversations can get a little confusing at times. But I feel like this teaches you a fairly large number of very practical words and sentences very quickly, and Helen Gilhooly's voice and accent made me feel like I was being privately tutored by Dr. Helen Magnus of Sanctuary--ha (yes, I'm a dork)!
