Consistent audio book

I founf this book structured and understandable, I don't remember all words, but I learned pronunciation at least.
It was a bit boring at times though, I would wish some more creative chapters in between to have more fun learning.

Takes the pain out of learning a language.

The book does a great job of building up Vocabulary . Sometimes the instructor has you use logic to come up with a phrase of which you may know the pieces to but you have to put it together, which i tests your understanding of Japanese word order.

practical, short, effective

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.

The vocabulary is useful

The vocabulary is useful and well taught using multiple examples :) The repetition is is a little too much though! A great set of lessons for visiting and getting around Japan. The instructor is easy to understand, knowledgeable, I especially enjoyed how the sentences were broken down into their literal components, so you can understand Japanese sentence structure.

Easiest way to learn

Excellent way to get up and running speaking Japanese. learned a lot and it did it in such a way that it compounds as you get further along. The short daily lessons combined with the repetition built in makes it far easier to retain the information in my opinion while keeping me interested.

Very simple and straight forward learning method

A very simple and straight forward learning method their repetition and break down of syllables helped out with my conversational Japanese.I loved it. Learning a new language was never easier to start. The best part is the system for retention.I never thought learning Japanese could be so easy! I highly recommend this audible book!

Quite dry compared to other Japanese vocab books

A lot of phrases, and useful ones, but it is like a dictionary of phrases and I struggle to keep motivated listining to it, where other books are more entertaining

For an absolute beginner, it may be overwhelming.

For an absolute beginner, it may be overwhelming.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 Words & Phrases! , it's very good!

Excellent for the drive to work

Really enjoyed this audio book . Have studied in school for years and have lived in Japan for a year and am always looking for (inexpensive) ways to keep up my Japanese. The format and content was just right. Also learned new vocabulary, as well. The format and content was just right.

it sounds like a robot is giving you the lesson

I have no idea who thought it was a good idea to have a robotic voice do an audiobook.

waste of time

I found this book to be such a disappointment. I am planning a trip to Japan and want to learn enough to converse in day to day situations. sadly, this was not a useful resource. it was mostly vocabulary, much of it not likely to come up in a casual conversation. they devote a couple chapters just to the world's countries. I was looking forward to the phrases segment but even that was a huge disappointment. the author's idea of important phrases is "I don't speak Spanish", "will you marry me?", and "I just want to be friends.". other than learning the numbers and months, I don't feel like I got anything useful out of this book. it was even hard to understand the speaker at times because of her accent. please don't waste your money.

Great book for Learn Japanese

I live and work in Japan but even in this complete immersive environment I use all the learning aids I can get. This audiobook is a great Vocabulary Edition aid in speeding up learning Japanese but that all it is, a suplement. If learning is what you want this will help but if used with a book, a Japanese instructor, and/or Japanese speaking friends. You can learn any language with any of those but if you want to learn quickly so I use them all. My only problem with this audiobook is that I don't agree with some of the English/Japanese matching. It is an interpreted translation and this does well enough.

Very nice and functional

I have finished "Learn Japanese for Beginners Easily & in Your Car! " by self study with this book and this is course is good because I now practice without a book. I do use a dictionary to get the spelling correct and therefore the pronunciation.
I am not sure how I would rate this for a beginner, maybe it is good to learn to speak before learning to write, just like a child!

it is very good for vocabulary building

It's short but it has great tips. especially for people who do not like Vocabulary very much.The Learn In Your Car series consists of spoken words and phrases that you hear and repeat twice.. If you really want to learn how to speak Japanese it is very good for vocabulary building .

A must for any japanese student of this level.

Great podcast to help you study Japanese

This includes the absolute beginner and other lower beginner levels one and two. This is the first volume to cover informal Japanese. I really feel like I learned a lot. I hope the following series are just as good.Great podcast with real-life and funny story. It is worth the price and it was never boring
