    I bought this course because it looked as if it would give me a good background to Romanian language The most irritating thing about it is that it seems to jump around from one subject to another and really doesn t flow well.However the main concern for me is that you don t get a chance to hear the words a second time and also the fact that the person speaking has quite a strong accent when speaking English that I found them hard to understand It would have been nice if they had updated the text when they converted it to a DVD instead of suggesting that you stop the tape now etc.

    This is quite simply the worst attempt at language tuition that I have ever encountered A patronising, James Mason sound alike suggest that, to improve one s pronunciation, you should ask a native speaker to correct you Really If I had a native speaker to hand, I wouldn t need your stupid language pack, would I The vocab is presented poorly without time for repetition and the dialogue is too fast, allowing for neither practice nor interpretation A pathetic attempt They should be ashamed.

    Chapter 1 repeat simple sentence too simpleChapter 2 repeat simple sentences still very simpleChapter 3 loads of grammar with pronunciation and very complicated sentences.upon the frequent suggestion of the author, I discussed practiced with Romanian friends native speakers they looked at the sentences I was learning and suggested I might want to find an easier book.Not terrible, but not that great either.

    Our Daughter in Law is Romanian and recommended this to our son to help him learn her language We also wanted to learn so it was obvious to go for this product.The book is good and is aimed at getting you speaking the language and not just understanding grammar However, it is not just a phrase book and will give a reasonable grounding in the language It is worth getting the pack because you get to hear native speakers on the CD and this helps pronunciation.You don t have to have any knowledge of Romanian to start with.

    The teach yourself series are normally very good and this is no exception Put the CD in your car or walkman and repeat the chapters, then move on with the book Repetition is the key.Also, although the grammar is well introduced, you need to have extra textbook exercises to do as such a small book is obviously limited.A very good start and foundation in the language.

    I have had this book and cd for a few months now and it is extremely useful Using the cd and the exercises you will pick up alot very quickly, there is a great section of verbs in the back and also a fairly detailed ENG RO dictionary.Its a fantastict price as well Another great buy is the Berlitz Romanian Phrasebook and Dictionary, much cheaper and better if you only need to learn key phrases and less grammar.

    With each edition, this series keeps being reformatted on the page, and sometimes it s an improvement, and sometimes it s not I bought this edition second hand, because the layout is much clearer In the latest edition, someone thought it was a good idea to place the conversations against a grey background, which just makes them harder to read.
