Price: £27.66

4.0 out of 5 stars Quite good, 4 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: PDQ Thai (Audio CD)
Not as good as Michel Thomas but better than Pimsleur. It's a pity Michel Thomas doesn't have a course in Thai.

Much better than any of the other methods around. Even better than private lessons with a teacher. I'll soon try Russian.

I tried private lessons, Pimsleur and Linguaphone. The Michel Thomas was by far the best. I even enjoyed learning such a difficult language..

The best and easiest method for learning a new language. With the Michel Thomas I feel confident enough to start learning Mandarin chinese soon.

I have been studying Hindu philosophy and religion for many years. I had a vague idea where sexuality fit in. These 6 CDs have brought everything together in a very enjoyable and clear manner. Thanks Wendy Doniger. I owe much to you.

This is very good for exercising the muscles of the lower back (strong resistance when pushong back) but does nothing for the abdominals.

2.0 out of 5 stars SAME AS..., 6 Dec 2012
Beware! This has been repackaged as "Speak Bulgarian with Confidence". I bought both of them and they are exactly the same. There are much better methods for learning a foreign language. I have already mastered 6 languages and in my opinion the best ones are: a.Paul Noble, b.Michel Thomas, c.Pimsleur, d.Earworms and e.PDQ Linguaphone. Unfortunately none of these include Bulgarian. For Bulgarian I recomend survivalphrases.com. It comes in 50 audio lessons. The accompanying PDF files are excellent!

This is the same as the course "Bulgarian Conversation" which I already own. I wasted my money. Not very easy to learn a foreign language from this series. The best are a.Paul Noble's, b.Michael Thomas' and c.Pimsleur's. Unfortunately none of them offer Bulgarian.

1.0 out of 5 stars Low quality, 7 May 2008
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A low quality product. The book contains very small text and looks as if it was written on a typewriter. The audio quality of the cd's is poor and the content below average. Even the sleeve is made of cheap cardboard and looks homemade.
As mentioned in the book this course is not meant for self-study but for classroom use with the support of a teacher.
Please take my advice: The fastest and easiest way to learn Turkish is to first use the Pimsleur basic course. Then proceed with the Linguaphone PDQ course. The best book to use for Turkish grammar is Teach Yourself Turkish.

2.0 out of 5 stars DISAPPOINTING, 4 April 2008

This review is from: Starting Turkish (Paperback)
I did not like this book. I found it difficult to learn from. The layout is confusing and there are not many explanations.
