    Anyone can get a quick start to learning basic everyday words in a foreign language with ...In 60 Minutes, an all-audio course that conveys and instills useful language within an hour. It's easy - no book needed and no grammar rules to learn! Each phrase is repeated so the listener can commit it to memory.

    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    People who are already familiar with the Alphabet and how words are broken down by syllables.


    What didn’t you like about the narrator’s performance?

    I like that the people that spoke the Korean words seem to be Korean or of Korean descent. What I didn't like was that they spoke the words at normal speed and then they tried to break up the phrase by syllables by digital means. It sounded like they used software to cut up the phrase or word instead of having the person actually say the word again slower and say the word or phrase broken up into syllables. Most of the time they broke the word or phrase at an unnatural parts.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Disappointment


    Any additional comments?

    Next time have the speakers say the phrase 3 times: normal speed, slowly, and broken down by syllable.

    Japanese Phase 1, Unit 1 contains 30 minutes of spoken language practice, with an introductory conversation, and isolated vocabulary and structures. Detailed instructions enable you to understand and participate in the conversation. The lesson contains full practice for all vocabulary introduced in this unit.

    Overall

    The whole thing is about 45 minutes where 16 minutes is spent telling you the story about the owner and his methods. I don't really care about that. The actual lesson is only about 30 minutes.

    I bought the Pimsleur French CDS years ago and it came with I think 6 CDS (maybe more). It was the beginner level as well and covered a lot more. So I expected more from this digital version for learning Japanese.

    I absolutely love this audio book!! It had an American guy paired with a Japanese woman. The guy has been living in Japan for 11 years and the woman sounds so adorable, especially when she laughs. They not only tell you how to speak Japanese but they tell you about the culture and the island. The American talks about some mistakes he made and what other foreigners tend to make. I love that they have a conversation, then say it again but enunciate each syllable of each word, then they explain what it means.

    I think a key aspect of helping someone learn a new language is enunciating and saying words slow enough for them to pick u the different sounds. Especially if the language has sounds that are not available in English.
