Hi everybody!
I need your advice:) You may have heard about CD collection "Verbal Advantage" aimed at enriching a listener's vocabulary to Harvard heights. I don't know anybody who has tried it and thought there might be someone here who had had this experience. I work mainly as a technical translator and interpreter and my generel English is suffering. Is it worth spending $300 on this product?
I will appreciate any feedback
Cheers,
Kseniya

thx Sep 1, 2006

Dear Jussi,

thank you for your feedback. The official seller's website quotes the price of $399 with a $100 discount that totals 299. On ebay I found this product for much less, $178. My question though didnt focus on monetary issue, but the real value the product might bring to a professional translator. Thanks, anyway

Rgds,
Kseniya
