My only real complaint about this product is that the recording quality is not always of a high standard. Levels 1 and 3 are crystal clear, however the German woman on the level 2 tracks sounds like she was recorded on a cheap, long-distance phone call. The length of the tracks is also inconsistent - level 1 has tracks of between 20-27 minutes (a long time to concentrate on a voice repeating random words in a monotone), while the tracks on the other levels are mostly a more comfortable 10-13 minutes. On the plus side, the pause between the English and German is long enough that you have time to try and think of the word yourself before it's repeated, and there is pleasant classical music that plays intermittently in the background. Overall, this is a good product for boosting your vocabulary from functional but basic to a more sophisticated level.
It comes with a small book for each level with a list of all the words and expressions on each CD (and there are lots of them, apparently 7500 words). Obviously not all of the words are going to stick the first time you listen to the CDs, but if you have the patience to use them over and over then you will be able to substantially improve your vocabulary.
This is not enough on its own to learn the language as there is no grammar, but if you want to improve your vocab then I would totally recommend this product!
