There's a story going on between the characters, so in a way, you're motivated to keep listening to find out what will happen and how the story ends.
It covers the basics to say at home, at work, when travelling, eating out, etc. It's for beginners so there will be some English dialogue that makes it easier to learn the German sentences. The German sentences are also put into songs, which makes me remember them easier. I like this and I'm looking for something Intermediate since I'm close to memorizing/learning every word and phrases on this one.
"Drive Time Italian" was much more useful for actually beginning to speak the language and I supplemented the vocabulary with Rick Steve's little wonder book. So, I'm good for Italy but will have to depend on recall from high-school for Germany.
The music is awful, but I could forgive that if I felt that the songs were helping me learn. They just get in the way - they totally missed the point of musical learning, in that none of the songs present the language in a manner that sticks, it's just distracting. And the music makes it *very* hard to hear all the subtle intonations of the pronunciation.
I took German in college, and do have a background with this language, I wanted a refresher course. This is NOT the refresher course I was after!
