Reviews - What do customers think about Berlitz Japanese: Flash Cards (Berlitz Kids)?

Good idea, but not as much there as it seems at first glance.  May 5, 2008
OK, I admit it. Though marketed for children, I was getting these flash cards for myself, hoping to make it more fun to learn a few words of Japanese and to recognize some hiragana. They weren't much help for me, but might be a brief introduction/reinforcement for YOUNG children. I'm deciding whether or not to return them. I might keep them and use them with my K-5 elementary students next year when I introduce Japan and the Japanese culture after my trip to Japan in October.

There are 50 cards. One side of the cards has the English word in black on a white background. The font chosen is child-friendly. The other side has a colored drawing of the word with the name in hiragana & Romanji (alphabet). Ten of the cards are the numbers 1-10. (More on that later.) Eight are colors. Six are basically English words with a different pronunciation (Japanese English). Though "ribingu" is probably pretty close to "living room;" making it seven English words. The rest are eleven animals, three family words, three body parts, two rooms (both "Japanese English"), six foods (including some "Japanese English."), seven other nouns (star, sun tree, etc.) Because of overlaps, this won't add up to exactly 50 (for those of you checking). /^_^\

When I first went through the cards, I looked at the color drawings checking the words I already knew. I saw apple, grapes, tomato, banana, and then a pineapple. I thought, "Hmmm. I didn't know the word for pineapple was "ichi." Then I saw that two apples was "ni." Ohhhhh. The drawing with the pineapple is supposed to be "one" and the one with two apples is "two." I have a degree in Early Childhood education. I would recommend putting the numerals "1, 2, 3, etc." instead of the drawings of fruits and vegetables; or having consistent shapes for each. In this day of "Sesame Street," even very young children recognize the numerals. It might even be interesting to include the actual kanji ("Chinese" characters) --especially for the numbers.

For children, which, to be honest, it's aimed towards, I might give the cards a higher score. I don't think many adults will find it useful. Next fall, if I find students really take to them, I'll add more to this review and say which ages used them.
