This is a fun, portable way to learn language basics. Not just another audio language program, the "On the Move series" features an engaging, natural approach to language learning ideally suited for today's hurry-up world. Unlike other audio programs that feature dreary drill formats and seemingly endless word lists, these innovative programs convey all the vitality and color of the cultures in which the languages are spoken. A lively narrator guides listeners through each course, at times meeting up with two other native speakers who take part in an unfolding story line that encompasses an array of everyday subjects, from meeting people, eating, dining, and shopping to getting around town, telling stories, and family relationships. Each package features: 3 60-minute audio CDs; a 32-page listening guide; sound effects, language games, and an engaging story line. It includes dozens of unscripted conversations that introduce key words and phrases as they're really spoken.
