ease into japanese Sep 18, 2007
This is a conveniant and easy way to get started with Japanese, it comes with a handy book and audio cd,all of which are quite easy to follow and enjoy.My only regret is,that i paid 15.95 at borders when I could've got it here at this site much cheaper, but either way it is worth it.It is true that there isn't much here for the student who has already studied this language, but if you are just starting out with it, this will do just fine.
kinda slooow Aug 15, 2007
I bought this to review basic sentence structure for JLPT4 and while it's decent for someone who doesnt know a word of Japanese, it's very slow for anyone else. Each word in the sentence is repeated then the whole sentence is repeated. While a thorough method, you wont learn a whole lot of different expressions this way. I prefer Dover's Japanese CD. It costs about the same, but packs in a lot more information and can be used beyond the intermediate beginner level.
