Excellent resource but NOT for beginners.

This is great for the intermediate to advanced level learner, but because there is no English in this, they are not lessons for the beginner. However, it can be useful still to any level learner if you use it for immersion. Hearing the sounds and music of the language will train your ears even if you don't understand what's being said.

So happy to see this
