Not helpful

I've tried several language programs for French, German, Japanese, and Spanish. This was one of the worst. The phrases don't stick in your mind. A string of words is thrown out in Japanese with no breakout of individual words. I found a couple of other Japanes language tapes far more helpful.

The COmplete Idiot's Guide to Japanese--idiotic!

I found this to be nearly useless--I would have been completely lost if I hadn't listened to Pimsleur's Japanese instructions tapes first. The only parts that were useful were the numbers and seasons--I couldn't make much sense of the other lessons. This is definitely NOT and introductory guide; there is no review of what you have learned, no way to listen & repeat the phrases, the translations come afterwards, and I found the organization very difficult to follow.
