1.0 out of 5 stars Tiny and flimsy, 23 Dec 2013
This was much smaller than I anticipated (website didn't list size - now I know why!), at about 4-5cm tall. The colouring is quite poor and there's very little to justify the cost. Its more akin to a tiny toy soldier than a disney character.
Waste of 4!

Unlike most language courses this isn't just a 'brain dump' of vocabulary that you'll memorise then forget in six months time. This course teaches you HOW to construct sentences and does so at a pace that is easy to manage. Many courses start off slowly then quickly evolve into a hurried mess - not so with this course. The pace is reasonable throughout and never changes. The course constantly visits old vocabulary to make sure you haven't forgotten it; which is in keeping with the course ethos of leaning, not memorising.
I've really enjoyed following this course - I just wish there was a follow-up course which would build on the knowledge already gained.

If the book had continued with the same level of depth throughout it would definitely have been a five-start product, but despite having good technical depth and covering most areas of concern,… Read more
