Each fairy tale starts in English, then slowly "morphs" into Japanese! Learn 20 words in a new language! This audio file contains narration, pronunciations of new words, sound effects, and fully orchestrated original music composed, arranged, and performed by "Slangman" David Burke. Here's how it works:
An English word in the fairy tale is translated.
The translated word is used throughout the rest of the story... again and again in context!
More and more new words are added.
All the new words are repeated throughout the story to reinforce understanding.
By the end of the story, 20+ new words have been learned!
Slangman's method is progressive! Start with Level 1 and continue through Level 3 to gain a strong foothold in a new language. Learning has never been so fun... or so easy!

Purchased this in an attempt to learn a few words
Someone who already speaks japanese
The book was too rushed. Made it hard to catch the words in japanese.
The person reading it needs to slow down and say the japanese words slowly and clearly. She rushes thru the story so quick and the japanese words so quick it's hard to catch them much less repeat them. Breaking the japanese words up into separate consenants would help.
no. i regretted buying it after only halfway thru it.
Sorry I'd wasted my money.

Too little for too much
Although I love the concept of a story moving from one language to another ... what I found was the narration was very fast. It was not told in story voice, slow and lyrical, but seemed to be at conversational speed. The other disappointment was the value of minutes for dollars - the audible cost comes out to .71 cents a minute. Not a great value even at a discount.
No. Too fast to absorb and too expensive for the amount of story time on actual tape
It could have been in a slower more lyrical story voice and a more comprehensive telling of Cinderella allowing for more vocabulary repetition and flow.
Bummed that I spent that much money on the book and glad that I did not purchase the level 2 & 3 books at the same time.
