Better options available

Any additional comments?

This was not a well put together learning program. It consists of a narrator saying a never ending list of new words. There is no opportunity for the listener to repeat the words or any conversational learning. There are far better options available that "teach" vs just shoot words at the listener. I highly recommend going with a different book/program to learn Japanese.

A good, short intro.

The good news is that it covers key phrases. The bad news is that you will probably need to study at least another 499 to 749 or more hours to be able to understand spoken Japanese.

I listen to these in a bunch of different languages to see if I'm passionate enough at the end of them to conitinue on my language learning journey with saud language...
