Hands down the best money I spent on TTMIK products. I learned so much. (Rather I had to unlearn things to relearn them.) While I may not say everything correctly 100% of the time yet since I am still memorizing all the rules and still training myself to forget what I was taught before, I have noticed I am starting to hear the sounds (or what letter they are pronounced like) correctly more often than I was before. Plus when I forget a rule while I'm studying and the word I hear sounds different from what I said I now understand why and I know there is just a rule there that I just need more practice with. It is a much better and more reassuring situation than before where someone was telling me "this is how this one word is pronounced but that is all you're going to get for this lesson. figure the rest out for yourself." Thank you TTMIK.

Love these. The videos are actually enjoyable to watch and make studying fun. Honestly! It's like lightbulbs flashing on when I learn the mysteries of when things don't sound like they're written. Everyone should watch this. You'll save yourself a LOT of confusion and stress.
