Each episode covers a discreet topic and lasts for between 5 and 20 minutes. Great to listen to a few episodes before a test and concise enough to listen to an entire semester before an exam.
  • Episode 1 to 12 covers Unit 1.
  • Episode 13 to 23 covers Unit 2.
  • Episode 24 to 31 covers Unit 3.
  • Episode 32 to 39 covers Unit 4.
