My Review 

Finally, no conjugation. Just how to say "I need", building into complete sentences. By the end of the first lessons, you are conjugating, but it's never called that. Excellent basic power verbs, as well as location words, distances, etc. It is a little light in explanations, for example why use estar and not ser. The program uses them correctly, so you have to pick out the example. A small book that follows the CD is included.

Would you recommend this to a friend? 

Yes
