“Completely Painless!!”

ProDevelop good pronunciation; no writing, no books!

I think I had better point out from the very beginning that this review is written by someone who, prior to 2003, could not speak a word of French! I started Spanish in secondary school (I can tell you when my birthday is in Spanish but that's it I'm afraid!) and when I moved schools eighteen...
