Um.

It pretty much defies language, doesn't it?

Deeply problematic
AND
pedagogically useless.

Let's be generous. Perhaps they had metrics indicating that this kind of presentation is an effective form of language instruction. (I would so love to see those metrics.)

Regardless of the method, though: if you need to learn these particular phrases in a foreign language, you might want to consider cancelling your trip.

But perhaps this particular style of instruction could help our armed forces in Iraq learn to speak Arabic.

Stupider ideas have been proposed.
