The actors sound like they don't really mean what they're saying - they lack vocal expression, so when they say something like 'glad to meet you', it sounds like they really don't care, and I find this offputting, and it hinders the learning too, since the expression doesn't match the written word.

They also speak far too quickly, slurring the words together. So fast, in fact, that in the early chapters I can't keep up with them whilst at the same time trying to pick out the individual words and recall their meanings. And guys, do you know what a full stop is for? STOP for a moment!

Of course in real life, people lack expression, and they slur their words together. But that is for advanced listeners. Beginners need to process the data consciously as well. Beginners need to pick out the individual words, hear the *correct* pronunciation, and recall the meanings. This cannot be done at breakneck speed.

It probably does not matter how you pronounce a language if you intend not speaking it but for most learners of Czech this
Audio Support is essential.
