What You’ll Learn
This Japanese program includes all of Pimsleur’s Japanese Levels 1 & 2. With this program you start from zero, first learning survival phrases and vocabulary, and eventually progressing to an intermediate level of speaking and understanding Japanese, plus you’ll learn to read the hiragana and katakana scripts.

Every lesson contains an introductory conversation, and isolated vocabulary and structures, as well as full practice for all vocabulary introduced. Emphasis is on pronunciation and comprehension. At the completion of this course, you’ll be able to speak comfortably about things that happened in the past and make plans for the future; you’ll speak confidently using your wide-ranging vocabulary, and experience the Japanese language and culture with a deepening insight.

Reading Lessons are included for each level. In Level 1, you'll learn to read the hiragana script and in Level 2, the katakana script. Each Level’s Reading Lessons will teach you the sound of the characters and then how to sound out words, phrases and sentences.

Learning the sound of each letter alone and in culturally distinct combinations allows your brain to process what you’re hearing in the audio lessons from a new and different perspective. It’s a powerful combination that makes Pimsleur different from every other method on the market.

Review on Your Terms
Brush up, or dive deep — it’s all up to you. Reinforce what you’ve learned quickly and effectively with flash cards. Created to help you practice the most-essential vocabulary, the cards contain words and short phrases from the daily audio lessons. The Quick Match interactive phrase game will help you to challenge yourself with longer phrases and sentences in a fun and fast-paced way. All new Skills categories let you view or review by topic, using either a list or a quiz format.

Expand Your Horizons. Reconnect with Your Heritage. Travel with Confidence.
Experience language learning like never before. Pimsleur Premium: easy, engaging, and fun.

The Japanese Language
Japanese is spoken by about approximately 122 million people in Japan. There are also speakers in the Ryukyu Islands, Korea, Taiwan, parts of the US, and Brazil. Pimsleur's Japanese teaches a polite level of Japanese appropriate for most situations in Japan.

After completing Rosetta Stone, I still coundn't really SAY anything, I knew vocabulary but struggled with making up sentences and conversing. Pimsleur is great at forcing me to recall phrases and sentences, really allowing me to converse more effectively. Pimsleur also does a much better job with grammar.
