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."
