Materials are of good quality and very easy to navigate, which makes this object valuable as a teaching tool. Target users need to have really attained solid intermediate/advanced levels in order to understand enough to immediately benefit. Professors need to be keenly aware of students' listening comprehesion level when assigning homework. Overall this object could be useful.

directly to my course web pages. The content of this page is interesting. The
sound files are very clear. The online interactive exercises allow students to
test they learning progress. Using the materials is easy even for the firt time
