The Japanese Language

      Comments about Japanese Phase 1, Unit 01-05:

      I listen to lessons on my long bus ride to and from work most days which is usually enough time to cover a unit. I really like the repetition and structure of the lessons but as a visual learner I have a hard time getting some words to stick. The male voice of the native speaker in particular is often tricky to understand and so I usually repeat lessons. That said, I can ask for directions with confidence and really do enjoy learning all the vocab.

      Service and delivery comments:

      The audio quality could be better. It's clear but very quiet. I had to buy a new set of over ear headphones just so I could hear the lessons at all on my noisy commute, and I still have to turn the volume up just shy of max. Also, when introducing new vocabulary words, it would be much more helpful if the pronounciation was slowed down, then said at a normal pace later on during review.

        Comments about Japanese Phase 1, Unit 01-05:

        We are going to visit Japan in October because my son lives there and speaks fluent Japanese. We ordered Pimsleur just to be a little bit competent in the basics. Much to our surprise, it is the most easy to follow program. Gobledegook Japanese became understandable, and speakable too, and in the first lesson. Thank you Pimsleur for your excellent method. Now I am looking forward to our trip even more because I will be able to talk to people skosi (a little). Hope to continue. I just recommended your program to someone going to Italy for the first time. Amazed that you do so many languages. By the way, my husband was able to get along in Ecuador because of your Spanish program, and now he is more confident and excited about being there. So happy for this program.
