Attempt to buy the booklet.

I've been using this download and agree that it has been very useful. However I've been attempting to purchase the booklet for over a month, with no success. I call the 800 number and just get a series of voice mail choices. E-mails to Penton Customer Service are not returned. Their web site allows me to purchase the booklet as part of the CD set, but by itself.

not worth the hassle

What disappointed you about Learn in Your Car: Russian, Level 1?

Lack of booklet and complications of burning to disk.
The booklet that supports Learn In Your Car disks is an extremely convenient and well designed aid to the audio. But converting the downloadable PDF file to booklet format is more expensive in time and effort than the price of the whole program. Originally it was possible to order the booklet from Penton Overseas, but they have been out of business for a long time.
When I burned the download to a disk, the result was 8-minute segments that did not correspond to the natural subject breakdown of the original tracks. And there is a 30 second introduction at the start of track one that no-one would want to hear more than once.
Fortunately I was able to buy a used set of disks on EBay, complete with booklet, at a very good price, but my Audible purchase was a waste of money.

What did you like best about this story?

Shores up the weak side of my language learning.

What about the narrator’s performance did you like?

Consistent with other Penton Overseas language tapes. Delivery is well suited to vocabulary building.

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Learn in Your Car: Russian, Level 1?


Any additional comments?
