    Bad examples

    The examples provided are very confusing for anyone that doesn't already know what they're "teaching". I also found that their pronunciation (both in English and Japanese) was unclear at times.
    I only used this to revise content I already knew, and yet I felt disappointed.

    Great learning supplement

    Great tool and enjoyable to do, love that they teach in native speed as well as breaking down and throw a mix of formal and informal in so you're not just learning the business brand of Japanese that most tapes teach. Could make the materials easier to find and identify though, it's hard to match the right chapter to the right download. Altogether though, fab!

    Best for Review

    What made the experience of listening to Learn Japanese: Word Power 101 the most enjoyable?

    I think this works best for listeners who are already studying the basics, like vocabulary and grammar. For an absolute beginner, it may be overwhelming. I study Japanese on and off (and it probably helps that I took two years worth of academic courses in high school), and I am happy to note that I understood almost all of this lesson, and it's free!

    What was one of the most memorable moments of Learn Japanese: Word Power 101?

    It's really great for review, and for me, it helps cement the basic grammatical structure of the language without the dry and tedious grammar lessons that are typical of academia-based courses. Academia is great if you are majoring in the language from an expert linguist or university-level perspective, but for someone who just wants to start speaking naturally as quickly as possible, I find this much more helpful. Academic/linguistic reductionism can wait until you've at least learned some basic vocabulary and phrases! Anyway, that's why I like audiobooks or podcasts like these, because I can hear the language being spoken naturally. For this specific lesson, like I said, I think it works best if you already know basic vocab and grammar, but for the price (free), it's very good!

    Completely updated & awesome!

    If you could sum up Learn Japanese: Word Power 101 in three words, what would they be?

    practical, short, effective

    Any additional comments?

    The new update of this book is way better than what used to be here. The words are actually the top 100 words, and each one is given with a phrase, and very practical sample sentences.

    Inaccurate translations

    There are many inaccurate translations and things that are not possible to understand. Use this only if you just need to hear some Japanese and already know the vocabulary well enough to notice mistakes.

    it's a step up beginners who have the basics down.

    When the native speaker spoke, the beginning of some of the words would cut out. but other than that, it had excellent examples for different scenarios. overall good immersion into the language.

    Not for beginners

    The accompanying pdf doesn’t match with this book. It would have gotten more stars if it matched up. The individual pieces are fine, but I need the pdf that matches with the book.

    For Intermediate learning.

    I thought the lessons were great and well presented. However, it's beyond my level, which is absolute beginner.

    Not for absolute beginner I think...

    You will have to know some basics words / verbs to make full use of this book. The pdf link "Download the accompanying reference guide." is not the correct file???
