One of the annoyances is that the CDs MUST be used in conjunction with the book. I have copied them to my iPod but unless I have reviewed the vocabulary in advance, it isn't necessarily helpful to simply listen to the recordings. The English is not repeated after the words (a feature I like with the Colloquial Persian). I also don't like the fact that when the American "character" (Jim) is speaking, he uses an American accent. This may be understandable but I only want to hear native Iranians speaking Persian - I am trying to develop a good accent, not imitate a foreigner!
Another issue is that not all of the Persian text has been transliterated. That's fine, as I intend to read Persian but it is my specific goal for the first 3 months to ONLY concentrate on the spoken language and developing my listening skills. I also don't like the particular transliteration system that has been used. (However, this is a personal preference and certainly doesn't detract from the value of the course).
I would recommend this course but only if you are seriously interested in Persian and not simply trying to learn enough to cope on holiday in Iran. If the latter is your goal, then Colloquial Persian would be much more useful.
