I think it is good, I just wanted to get the basic part of how to learn it from text book would be getting the foundation which is countable. I took a few months at a senior center in Salem Oregon called the 50s club , was in class with 10 or so others,taught by a professor , used a book and we read out loud. No just a conversation but the verbs, adj. and all the rest. would be better if this was more formed that way, but I will continue to use this , very thankful. Renee Hinlsey
