Why are the audio lessons so effective?
Why are the audio lessons so effective? You'll receive a syllable-by-syllable breakdown of each word and phrase, so that you can say every word and phrase instantly. You'll repeat after the professional teacher, so that you can practice proper pronunciation. Quick cultural tips in each lesson will help you navigate your way even better. And above all, this is a fun and relaxed approach to grasping a lot of information quickly and easily.
You see, unlike other audiobooks, we actually teach both Japanese and Japanese culture. With each lesson, you will master a target phrase and key vocabulary. This is a complete lesson taught by a professional, bi-lingual teacher! This is NOT a vocabulary audiobook with just words and their translations.

I listened to the Whole Thing in 24 Hours
Crude Adaptation to Audiobook Format
1. This has lots of playful banter. I thought it was all right as I think it is intended to motivate you to stick with it. If you are a more serious student you may hate this. As a light easy podcast it would work. I recomend going to their website, trying out their free introductory podcasts and if you like it continuing there.
2. I felt the order in which they introduced words was reversed. First, in full converstions at full speed, then slow speed, then the meaning of the new words. I often would have to rewind at that point to the beginning to try and "hear" the all the words in the sentence and not just a long string of sounds.
3. The lesson and pdf reference all mention appendixes that go into detail. It isn't in the downloadable pdf nor can I find it on audible, nor on the non-member section of Japanese pod 101. This is a glaring ommision, as they cover only time words in their sample conversation and then say look at the appendix for all the time related words. So I know how to say half past six and four in the morning but not any other times. This is the main reason why I say this is a crude adaptation, they have overlooked including the appendices, which are essential to this course.
4. Finally there are no chapters, so you can't jump from lesson to lesson, just rewind and forward through all 17 hours of audio. This is annoying, especially in light of point #2.
Don't think so.
It depends. I would reccomend it as a quick refresher prior to traveling to Japan for cultural points and a few useful stock phrases. If you are interested in learning the language in a systematic complete way, I would look for something else, or consider joining the japanese pod 101 community.
