Not Very Good
Would you try another book written by BBC Active or narrated by the narrator?
I usually find BBC Active material very useful however this is anything but. I already know some German but find this bitty and too fast paced. Very difficult to get to grips with the material.
Would you ever listen to anything by BBC Active again?
Probably yes. I have used and enjoyed other material.
