This is clearly a narrative for English learners

The Korean speaker sounds like his part was sent in on a cassette tape they found left over at an abandoned Radio Shack. I've done voice acting and studied Korean, was trained to teach and have a TESOL certification and it's clear the emphasis is on understanding the English speaker and not the Korean.
It is not very helpful unless you've been learning Korean for some time. I'd hesitate to call this beginner level, and it's definitely NOT a story so much as a log of events to describe a typical English day.

The material is not taught well.

The material is not taught well. It is not easy to retain what is taught. There is too much English, but not enough Korean. The material is not explained well.

The Korean is Upstaged by the Brit

The audio in this material strongly favors the Brit in amplitude, clarity, and diction.

This material was originally recorded for native Koreans wanting to learn English.

Helpful

I’ve listened to this a few times and it is really helpful in comprehension of the language and it feels like more everyday natural Korean...I’m overall happy with my purchase

perfect

Perfect for my needs. I wanted to be able to read out loud to practice pronunciation and speed up my speech. Also really helps with reading and understanding simple stories in Koreans.
