I press the pause button to give me time to respond. I press the button to repeat the last 30 seconds every time I screw up. Using these methods really motivates me to get it right.

Good for daily exercise

Essentially they are practicing a couple of situations you could run into as foreigner (e.g. Expat) in China.
They repeat often enough so that eventually words and phrases start to stick in your brain.
If there is anything to criticize: you more often practice the male in a conversation, less frequently the role of the female.
