'The individual learner - and I have tested this on a mature student who has looked at a wide range of self-learning courses - gets an excellent deal: the course is reasonably priced, the tone is not patronising, guidance is sufficient while not overdoing instructions in German …The grammar tackled is particularly accessible, the vocabulary mostly that of in daily life.'
