Some good things & some not so good things
Lately I've been very spoiled with the Paul Noble language series. Unfortunately, he does not have a course for Japanese, so I settled for this one.
*It does teach some very basic conversation skills.
*It teaches the numbers pretty well.
*There is some good general info about Japanese culture, food, alphabet, etc.
*On a trip to Japan, I found myself understanding more than I thought I would, and able to speak a little.
*The narrators have weirdly scripted conversations back and forth. It sounds very contrived, and doesn't add in any way.
*I found myself needing to go back and re-listen to the dialogues many, many times before I really started to make sense of them.
*In general, it doesn't seem like this series puts any effort into understanding how the human brain learns language, which is why you will constantly need to go back and re-listen.

It did what i needed it to
My home language is English and im fluent in Spanish and this feels exactly like beginner courses all over again. If you want to learn a language by audiobook or book though, you really need to go the extra mile and have an unwilling victim to use your japanese on but, thats off subject. This book is sufficient in its attempts to teach beginner japanese.
