See 15 films, each split up to introduce
bite-size chunks of new language.

We filmed them specially for the Starter Pack with native speakers to show simple language in real social contexts that you can understand without translation.

With the CD-ROM, you have control as an independent learner. Watch at your own pace - pause - see them again if you want.

You control watching an hour's worth of film clips
