Langocity Cantonese Complete is a waste of money

The PDFs look like poor quality scans of poorly printed hardcopies, and thus many of the accent marks over the romanized cantonese words are indistinguishable from one another. This makes it difficult for the student who is just learning to figure out what should be pronounced how. Additionally, the source text book which was scanned for this distribution seems to be old as well as very rudimentary in its nature. It looks outdated and rough in terms of presentation of material. The audio files have a lot of background noise and the sound quality is not good. This does not help the student distinguish the subtle tone differences. The claim that this course will help you read and write Cantonese Chinese is misleading. There is very little presence of actual Chinese characters in the text and no real emphasis on teaching them. There is no refund or exchange policy once you have purchased, so buyer beware. All in all, this appears to be a waste of money!
