Bad soundquality makes it very difficult to hear the exact pronounciation oft the japanese phrases. That's unfortunate because the recording is contentwise quite useful.

Memorization to a catchy little tune. . .believe it or not, it works. The readers are very clear, and the available free pdf sheet is a great help.
Understand before you begin, that this is good for a very, very short trip to Japan. You'll be able to order in a restaurant, tell the taxi driver to take you to the airport, ask if you can pay by credit card, etc. They do get rather a lot into the hour long program.
Please remember though, (which, of course, I didn't) it's an hour long program. You will not be able to converse with native Japanese people beyond these very limited phrases. You will definitely not be able to turn off the subtitles on your favorite Japanese movies. You'll still be absolutely clueless when it comes to trying to read Japanese characters. I would love to see a language instruction course based on this rhythmic theory, but with some hint of sentence structure, grammar, etc.

What can I say ... I was sceptical at first when i purchased this title, ?9.49 for a basic Japanese language course, but let me put that scepticism to rest here and now ... this course is great & well worth the money ... think the Ronseal advertisment ... 'does exactly what it says on the tin!
There is no work on formal written japanese text but lets be honest, i think being able to speak enough basic japanese to get by will be enough for most people !
Like myself, i'm sure that you all remember learning french or whatever at school and how boring or how much of a chore it was ! Well the Earworms learning aid makes practicing the language a fun and enjoyable time! I actually look forward to practicing the course! If only i'd have had this or one off the other language courses by Earworms, I would have surely continued studying a language of some description before now !
I've only had the course just under a week but im quiet able and confident in my ability to use what i have learnt from the course itself. The reason for purchasing the course is due to a possible job offer in Japan and i would like to be able to pass myself intially while i'm there.
Great course, great layout, great results after only a few days ! Check it out and see what you think !
Though i do have to point out, like all things, you have to want to learn the material and for people who already have a baisc knowledge fo the language, i would imagine you should sit tight until volume 2 comes out !

An innovative way to learn! I found the idea of learning Japanese quite daunting, but this way of learning made it relatively painless. The music and repetition seems to make it stick! The teachers have lovely voices, which makes it very easy to listen to. Recommended.
