perfect

Perfect for my needs. I wanted to be able to read out loud to practice pronunciation and speed up my speech. Also really helps with reading and understanding simple stories in Koreans.

Great for beginners

This one has a great vocabulary list and a story summary after each story. Also, a little quiz to help you know what you have understood.

Amateur sound design ruins this

Very hard to continue.
Why is the Korean speaker muffled and the English speaker twice as loud?

The material is not taught well.

The material is not taught well. It is not easy to retain what is taught. There is too much English, but not enough Korean. The material is not explained well.

I love the structure of these books by Lingo Mastery and they are a great asset for polyglots like myself. I hope they come out with an intermediate version soon too!
