    "Entertaining and useful at the same time"

    I bought Pimsleur Language Programme for Japanese to have something to listen while doing other works that do not require full attention. I find the audio books very useful; the language is taught step by step, and the topics in earlier sections are revisited in later ones. That makes it easy to keep up with it, helps strengthening the basics of the language. I will continue with later chapters since it is entertaining and useful at the same time.

    "Fast way to functional Japanese"

    I am learning in a class, through an online program, and with these Pimsleur audio books. Of the three, these audio books work the best for me to learn conversational Japanese. I get the best results by going through each lesson twice.

    "language learning at its best!"

    I lived in Japan for 12 years and have found these lessons exceptional. The Africans have a proverb that says, "The ear is connected to the tongue ". Pimleur courses prove how accurate that is. Highly recommended!

    "Very fun and educational experience👍."

    I have had a pretty good experience with it so far. Listening to a chapter the first time around seems overwhelming but each time after that you start to get the hang of it. On average I would listen to a chapter 4-6 times; twice a day for two days or if necessary three days before I feel comfortable enough to get to the next one. So far I have been keeping up more thank expected.

    "Good method and clear speech but will add up"

    The Pimsler method is working for me, and I have failed with other programs before, however, with the way they only give you 5 lessons in each pack when there are 120 lessons in all, it will certainly add up.

    "pricey and a bit out of date"

    Japanese is strangely formal according to native speaker. It is effective though and material is presented with birth male and female speakers.
