Great Resource for Intermediate Japanese Learners!

What did you love best about Master Intermediate Japanese?

The teaching method and quality of the information provided was excellent! This book is the perfect level of Japanese I am practicing and it has been a great resource for me!

What was one of the most memorable moments of Master Intermediate Japanese?

The discussion early on about anime! (^。^)

Would you listen to another book narrated by David Michaels and Ryoko Yasuno ?

Being an audio engineer and voice artist myself I'm probably a little hard to please, but the quality of the audio recording was a little lacking. However, the content of the book itself more than made up for it. So assuming content future products by David and and Ryoko is of the same standard, I can deal with the audio quality!

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

It just made me super excited to be learning more Japanese!

I'm lucky to have found this!

This particular audiobook has been a tremendous help in learning intermediate Japanese. The format is very natural and makes learning at this level very approachable, all intermediate grammar points are well explained. The articles are an excellent way to learn relevant Japanese words and the articles are actually interesting, I enjoyed listening to them so it didn't feel like hard work to learn hundreds of new vocabulary words. The test questions were super helpful in making sure I understand everything as I went along. Also, I loved how you can download the pdf from the publishers website. This audiobook is a gem!

You must get the free PDF to help with this!

Firstly - get the free PDF on the website which is talked about at the start of the audio book. It really helped me with the pronunciation of the kanji - and it helped my reading skills too.

My level is quite basic. I know katakana and hirigana (essential) and a few kanji. I love on the PDF that all the kanji furigana are there and they are just the right level for me to be able to read along.

The book gives you a group of three articles. It then reads the vocabulary and then finally gives the three readings again at the end. I wasn't sure about this format at first - but actually, I love it. It lets you learn something and then practice again. Combined with the PDF I really felt like I was learning and understanding loads of new words in the articles.

There are about 3 hours of recordings which is great - but for my level I'm finding that I can play these back several times to really get to grips with all the vocab, grammar and kanji. This means that I've got hours of learning for one credit.

The Japanese sections use a really clear voice. This is really useful for vocab pronunciation and getting fluency in the articles.

I'm really not a fan of boring textbooks for language learning. This really fits a gap for those who have learnt some basics and want to move on.
