Most of the times you try opening the subtitles on this program, they won't open. This needs to be fixed period!!
Don’t buy it !!!
Waste of money, I purchased it to listen to it without the need of carrying the cd
Amazing program and great value!
I am an ESL teacher and I do a lot of accent and pronunciation teaching. I LOVE this program. These days nearly all my students have iPods or iPhones these days. With this app, they always have a teacher with them. This program has lots of practical exercises that really work to help them standardize their accent. Just as importantly, it has nothing theoretical that is only intended for teachers or will only confuse them. I really like the onscreen recorder where they try to match their voice to a native speaker model. When I should this aspect to my students, they were totally psyched by it. I've used the book this was based on for a long time (American Accent Training by Ann Cook). I was stunned by how much audio is included in this program and how reasonable the price is. I just wish there were something like this for me to work on my Spanish accent : )
