I have been looking for a program like this for quite awhile. For those of us who just want to develop our ear, who don't want a lot of English explanation/clarification, this program is ideal. Both "teachers" speak clearly and at a good pace, using interesting story lines. The worksheets, available on their website for a small fee, include the direct transcript of each episode as well as exercises. They're great for looking up the occasional phrase or words for review. They also have advanced episodes, but I haven't check those out yet. Thanks for this great product!!
