  • "Sceptical at the start ..."

    Overall

    What can I say ... I was sceptical at first when i purchased this title, ?9.49 for a basic Japanese language course, but let me put that scepticism to rest here and now ... this course is great & well worth the money ... think the Ronseal advertisment ... 'does exactly what it says on the tin!
    There is no work on formal written japanese text but lets be honest, i think being able to speak enough basic japanese to get by will be enough for most people !
    Like myself, i'm sure that you all remember learning french or whatever at school and how boring or how much of a chore it was ! Well the Earworms learning aid makes practicing the language a fun and enjoyable time! I actually look forward to practicing the course! If only i'd have had this or one off the other language courses by Earworms, I would have surely continued studying a language of some description before now !

    I've only had the course just under a week but im quiet able and confident in my ability to use what i have learnt from the course itself. The reason for purchasing the course is due to a possible job offer in Japan and i would like to be able to pass myself intially while i'm there.

    Great course, great layout, great results after only a few days ! Check it out and see what you think !

    Though i do have to point out, like all things, you have to want to learn the material and for people who already have a baisc knowledge fo the language, i would imagine you should sit tight until volume 2 comes out !

  • Drive Time Japanese: Beginner Level

    "Drive Time Japanese"

    Overall

    I've been trying to teach myself Japanese for a few years now, getting free or cheap second hand Japanese learning books here and there, and starting but never finishing them. Doing that worked better than you would expect. It meant that I already knew a lot of the words and expressions being used in the audiobook. I think you would probably struggle a bit if you didn't know the basics in Japanese. That said, I found the audiobook much more useful than I imagined, and it enabled me to practice what I already knew, and learn some new words in the process. I found it quite good for learning the Japanese grammar. While there is little explanation on why each words are used the way they are, I was still able to get a good feel of when and how to use them.
    The only downside is that the pauses given for you to speak are a bit short, so you have to pause the audiobook to give yourself time to think and reply (not great when driving...).

    I think this audiobook is only really suitable for people who already have some basic knowledge of Japanase, but just want to practice speaking it a bit more.
