The Japanese Language
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. Japanese has many “registers” or levels of politeness. Pimsleur’s Japanese courses will teach you how to speak at a polite register, which is appropriate in virtually any situation you are likely to encounter in Japan.

    Comments about Pimsleur Japanese Level 1 Lessons 1-5 MP3:

    I NEVER thought I could learn another language. But what I like about Pimsleur, when you move to the next lesson the trainer takes you back to the previous lessons so you don't forget what you learned. I love this method.

    Comments about Pimsleur Japanese Level 1 Lessons 1-5 MP3:

    I am currently using the Japanese Pimsleur course, and I have to say that it is pretty great. I have learned how to speak a bunch of Japanese so far. My only complaint is that it is a little to fast paced for me, especially in later lessons.

    I ordered this product for digital use, and I got it right away.

    Comments about Pimsleur Japanese Level 1 Lessons 1-5 MP3:

    I'm taking a trip to Tokyo soon and wanted to have a few basic Japanese phrases under my belt. I did two lessons each day (one new one and one from the previous day) and went from speaking and understanding nothing to learning useful phrases in a matter of days. I really like that the voice actors speak at a normal pace/quickly so you feel like you're listening to real conversations. The only criticism I have is that I wish we were able to see what the lessons include before purchasing.
