Description

Includes 30 lessons and culture notes on 16 CDs, plus a culture notes booklet

Japanese is spoken by about 130 million people, 122 million of whom are in Japan. There are also speakers in the Ryukyu Islands, Korea, Taiwan, parts of the United States, and Brazil. Pimsleur's Japanese teaches a polite level of Japanese, which is appropriate for use in most situations in Japan.

The Pimsleur® Method is scientifically proven to be your fastest route to nearnative fluency. Speak and understand Japanese in just thirty minutes a day. Japanese III, Comprehensive includes another 15 hours of spoken language practice and one additional hour of Culture Notes, and is designed is designed to be used after completion of Levels I & II.

  • The beginning 10 lessons offer you the chance to further expand your vocabulary and increase your fluency to an even higher level. In these lessons, you’ll gain experience participating in many informal and some formal discussions on practical, social, and semiprofessional topics. You’ll skillfully form longer, more complex sentences, and most importantly, you’ll find yourself being understood, even by native speakers unused to dealing with foreigners. Understanding a large amount of the conversations you hear, you’ll be able to join in effortlessly, confident of being understood.
  • In the next 10 lessons your skills will show everincreasing mastery of the language. Speaking with grace and complete naturalness, you’ll enjoy fluid conversations on many new subjects. Delving deeper into cultural norms and situations, you’ll find yourself responding without thinking, and able to choose from a wide accumulation of vocabulary and structures.
  • In the final 10 lessons, you are nearing fluency with agile responses, and a naturalsounding, nearnative accent. You’re able to utilize the language in more subtle ways, and speak consistently using past, present, and future tenses appropriately. Self confidence soars as you experience the language and culture; no longer as a foreigner, but with a deepening insight into an expanding new world.
One hour of recorded Culture Notes are included at the end of Unit 30. These Notes are designed to provide you with some insight into Japanese culture. A Culture Notes booklet is also included in PDF format.

Comments about Japanese Phase 3, Units 1-30:

I think the sales pitch is baloney. I work hard and spend a lot of time but I wouldn't feel comfortable being dumped in downtown Tokyo.

Service and delivery comments:

I wish they would speak slower in the introductory conversations. Many times I listen over and over before I know exactly what the gist is. Provide the text of the MP3 if students desired.
