"Don't waste your money. The DVD versions are straight copies of the VHS tapes (poor VHS quality). There is no attempt to "teach" just straight display of a word and then they speak it (in poor audio quality). In a video you'd expect extensive usage of images yet much of the content is just a black screen with white words or phrases displayed.
Don't waste your money (or time) on these videos unless you get them from a bargain bin for less than $10 each."
Pricey, but a winning track record!

"There's a reason the language lessons for this series -- which includes German & Russian, Spanish & Portuguese, French & Italian, Japanese & Chinese, and Arabic, Hebrew & Yiddish -- look a little dated: They ARE. But that doesn't take away from their proven effectiveness in the classroom for an age range from older children to adults. The titles are a bit pricey, but they really will work to provide those new to a language with enough basics to get along as a tourist or a polite businessman or businesswoman. Those with a portable DVD player or laptop can brush up on their lessons before and during their trips."
