Wish I knew you can get this for free

So I'm kicking myself for actually paying for this item. You can get the exact same course for free via podcast on iTunes and I do mean the exact same thing.

While the content of this course is nice, and broken down into extremely short manageable pieces, which is a great plus for any language learning course, the narrator reading it is so awkward sounding. She is speaking so slowly that it could be considered painful and this isn't just when she is speaking Hindi, but also when she speaks English. This is maybe around 60-70 wpm. Which is extremely slow for a native English speaker.

On the flip side the time they give you to respond to her questions is extremely short, in fact for myself an intermediate level speaker who can speak some of these phrases at a rather fast clip it is way to fast to say more than four words.

Overall I would say that the information itself is why I rated this so high, not the narration, not the price (because as I mentioned you can get this for free), but at least if you don't have an iPod this is a rather cheap course to purchase.
