Good... in a way

This book is kind of good, but after doing two of the books and spending time in Indonesia, I've realised the other reviewers were correct. People do not speak like this, people will laugh at you constantly for speaking like this. You're doing an indonesian equivalent of walking around speaking like a ye olde gentlemen from the Victorian era. Duolingo is 10 times better and free.

Poor Story

I like the methodology but the story is a bit of a let down. Why would a beginner want to know how to ask a colleague if they want to have lunch with you?

Having said that, I'll probably buy the remaining units.

Great!

The pace seems to be faster than the previous but is still manageable if done in the recommended structure of daily consecutive use
