Excellent as a practice or for tourists

This system is great as listening and speaking practice for those who only need some basics for tourism. The work is well presented, it's fun to follow and quite challenging in good way. I missed having written materials, and real explanations of the grammar. My fear is that without those you end up like a parrot, able to repeat things, but without much ability to create your own much past what you have been repeating. Also completely unable to read anything.
The method presents itself that way, and it does what its system suggests very well.
I gave it a 4 because, though I don't believe it should be your only resource if you really want to learn the language, it most certainly is an incredibly helpful one.
