    Comments about Japanese Phases 1-3:

    From day 1 I was able to implement what I was learning. I didn't realize that my pronunciation would be so dead on even though I never see a word printed. Repetition is the key.

    Comments about Japanese Phases 1-3:

    This is a great jump into a language you don't know. The intuition and ear for the language you gain from pimsleur is unprecedented. I'm not even done with the first phase yet but I already feel confident in several scenarios.

    Service and delivery comments:

    I understand pimsleurs approach as being solely listening and speaking. I do not think there should be any read along. However it would be extremely beneficial having a guide to new vocabulary words. There are some words that even slowed down and said syllable for syllable that are hard to understand. With a guide with new words only you can really grasp what they are saying. Pimsleur should not write out sentences or anything, new words only and a reccomendation to use it only when absolutely neccasary.

      My wife and I have had an easy time picking up on the Japanese language and sentence structure, thanks to the construction of the language lessons. I have already recommended Pimsleur courses to several friends because of my experience!
