So far, so good

I have only completed the first few lessons, and I'm in in no hurry, but I really like the approach to the language that this method is taking. Being a visual learner, I especially like the word pictures and mnemonics. Like Pimsleur, this method emphasizes spoken and conversational language, but its vocabulary is much more appropriate to a 40+ mom who won't be visiting any bars or introducing herself to any young men in the near future.

Schizophrenic and Annoying

The first chapter of this book is promising; it hints that it might teach you a wealth of Japanese vocabulary and phrases in the setting of an entertaining and light-hearted plot. This premise is abandoned after the first chapter, and the rest of the book is filled with heavy-handed and ultimately useless mnemonics (I'm not even kidding, he uses the phrase "decky moss" as a mnemonic for "dekimasu"... What is "decky moss"?). This audiobook is not going to help anyone have a worthwhile understanding of Japanese.
