These lessons are just about as good as it gets for pure Japanese learning but this is for the hardcore not for the sophomore. but if you can can hang and take your time with the wealth of knowledge you will be hardcore for sure.
hours and hours of learning this gives sooooo much bang for your buck
for the serious Japanese learners this that has a basic understanding of nihongo this will give you the inside stuff you need to get you close to being a master
I have only completed the first few lessons, and I'm in in no hurry, but I really like the approach to the language that this method is taking. Being a visual learner, I especially like the word pictures and mnemonics. Like Pimsleur, this method emphasizes spoken and conversational language, but its vocabulary is much more appropriate to a 40+ mom who won't be visiting any bars or introducing herself to any young men in the near future.
