I know a tiny bit of Korean (the kind used in martial arts) and I've taught myself Hangul, so I understand the sounds that make up the Korean language. I listened to the first 10 minutes of this disk and I simply couldn't pick up anything. They say the English once, then the Korean once and REALLY fast. It's impossible to pick out the syllables. Before you really even have time to try saying the korean phrase they've already said the next English phrase. Don't buy this book. It's not good for any skill level.

This is a very poor learning program. The Penton programs don't explain the language. They simply provide words and phrases in English and the foreign language together. If you know the fundamentals, that can still be helpful. But this program is even badly organized. For example, you would think it would put numbers in sequence, days of the week and months in series and different phrases that show how the language works. It does not of that. It's basically a random series of English words followed by their Korean translation.

The quality of the audiobook is fine, but it is just a collection of phrases, spoken once in English and once in Korean. This can be a good companion work to an introductory class, but by itself I found it thoroughly unhelpful
