Good idea but very poorly done

I was looking forward to this audiobook as it sounded like exactly what I needed to extend my vocabulary.
However, I find it quite frustrating because is so poorly done. The actual structure doesn’t works well. For example you only get to hear what the English translation of a phrase is after hearing the phrase repeated twice, so I alway have to wind back then for every phrase to then try and learn it. Also, the translations to English are really inaccurate, usually missing words or adding ones that aren’t there.
I guess that once you are actually familiar with all the vocabulary and understand it when you hear it, the this audiobook could be good to familiarise with pronunciation.

A good supplement for learning

I think this is a great audiobook for supplementing language learning. It is most helpful for figuring out the pronunciations of words, something that can be a struggle when learning a new language for the first time. It certainly isn’t a standalone solution, as you still need to work through grammar and other rules, but definitely worth using as part of a comprehensive solution to learning Japanese.

It works very well with daily self-study

This audiobook is a useful collection of common Japanese words and expressions. It could be an excellent complement to daily self-study for those who have basic knowledge of the language, especially in grammar aspects.

The recordings are flawless in intonation and vocabulary, using the word both alone and at its context, and could be an awesome guide to quick access by hand, when combined with the use of the platform's bookmark.

Great help in my learning process

I've been trying to learn Japanese for a while now, I could say I have an intermediate level. I'm very passionate about the language, so I try to consume as much content about it as I can, and I can say this audiobook is a must. I learned a lot of new and useful vocabulary. Can't wait to use it on my trip to Japan. Also, the narrator has a very clear pronunciation. Thanks a lot!

An amazing Japanese immersion

2000 Most Common Japanese Words in Context by Lingo Mastery is a handy resource for all Japanese learners. I’m in contact with people from Japan every day, and this tool helped me increase my vocabulary and my fluency in the language. You can learn the essential words and phrases of the language in your own time. It is definitely a “must hear” to all the beginners and people who intend to travel abroad to Japan.

Great at its intended use

The 2000 Most Common Words series by Lingo Mastery is a unique kind of self study resource that is a great supplement to workbooks and tutors for anyone who is truly motivated to learn a language. I'm just starting out with Japanese and I use this book along with a workbook for now and I'm taking it slowly.

This is not supposed to be a one-stop-shop kind of book to learn Japanese, but it's a great way to leran some of the most essential vocabulary.
