This is part two of the earmworms Japanese Course. This course uses a music background with a native and English speaker going over Japanese phrases and words. The course tends to provide a sentence, in English, and then in Japanese and then breaks down all the words in the sentence, and the pronunciations for the words. The course is similar to the other earworms courses, and if you liked one of the others I imagine you'll like this one.
It's not a bad idea, although the tunes are not that great, I find that I can recall some of the sentences. A good supplement for learning, or for a quick fix before heading on holiday.
"Useful and Practical"
For those who want to expand their knowledge from Vol. 2. As with all audio lessons on a language, it is necessary for the listener to have some knowledge of the language already, to really get the benefit. I found the content to be practical for a person wanting to visit Japan and get by on a basic level. I enjoy the music and the voices used. I'm a fan of the earworms series.
"Better than some"
Even though I have had problems with other language programs in the past I was able to complete all of the lessons in units 1 and 2 fairly easily. However, I found it difficult to remember what I had learned outside of the context of replying to the speaker in the lesson. Someone asked me what I had learned and to my amazement I could think of no reply.
