Reviews - What do customers think about Japanese With Ease (Assimil with Ease)?

Everything you need to get started.  Sep 3, 2008
The Assimil program has long been regarded one of the best language learning programs out there. It's been around for almost 80 years, and the system hasn't changed much. The booklet provides different conversations with the pages split up into Japanese and English on either side and the audio being all Japanese.

There's also plenty of sidenotes which teach you lots of things and funny cartoons to add humor. All in all, a very good course and has everything you need to get started learning Japanese.
Foreign Language Programs  Dec 29, 2007
I purchased the Assimil Japanese with Ease program for my daughter for a Christmas gift. She was very excited with it as her sister now speaks fluent French after having used the Assimil French program. It is a good program and easy to use. The key is to use it at least 3 times a week if possible ( every day is optimal ). My daughter already has basic Japanese skills learned in High School and she also suggests listening to movies in Japanese with NO subtitles. She is ripping it to her mp3 player so she can study between classes at college.
An excellent way to get started with Japanese  Nov 24, 2007
I switched to Assimil Japanese with Ease after having gone through Pimsleur Comprehesive Japanese I. I found the Assimil format much more natural match for my brain, since I didn't have to keep switching between Japanese and English. In Assimil, you'll first listen to a dialogue in Japanese while reading it in Japanese, then compare it with word-by-word (i.e. interlinear) and fluent English translations to unlock the meaning, read it aloud in Japanese to practice speaking, and finally review it, again completely in Japanese. Much later you'll review it by translating it from English to Japanese. (Contrast this with Pimsleur, where most of your time goes to speaking Japanese sentences as prompted in English. Boring.)

In terms of numbers, Japanese with Ease volumes I & II teach you about 1800 words, and how to read and write the hiragana and katana syllabaries. That isn't really more than solid start, and Assimil hasn't produced an intermediate course for Japanese, but it's more than what some self-described "advanced" courses teach you. There is also a third volume that teaches you how to write kanji, but I didn't get that myself.

I'd recommend Assimil Japanese with Ease I & II (this product is volume I) to those wishing to jump-start a longer, serious study of Japanese. For this purpose, I believe it's the best product on market both in terms of content and value. Those wishing acquire some minimal "survival Japanese" for their upcoming trip are better served with Pimsleur Compherehensive Japanese I, II & III.
