    "Excellent as a practice or for tourists"

    This system is great as listening and speaking practice for those who only need some basics for tourism. The work is well presented, it's fun to follow and quite challenging in good way. I missed having written materials, and real explanations of the grammar. My fear is that without those you end up like a parrot, able to repeat things, but without much ability to create your own much past what you have been repeating. Also completely unable to read anything.
    The method presents itself that way, and it does what its system suggests very well.
    I gave it a 4 because, though I don't believe it should be your only resource if you really want to learn the language, it most certainly is an incredibly helpful one.

    "Aimed to stick"

    When I first listened to lesson one I thought there was no way I could ever pronounce the words but now I can easily recall five lessons worth if words.

    Although probably best used in conjunction with other learning methods it does build your vocabulary. I listen and learn in the car as that is all the time I have at the moment. on to lesson 6 tomorrow.

    "An enjoyable experience"
    What made the experience of listening to Japanese Phase 1, Unit 01-05 the most enjoyable?

    The learning format is very good. It flows from chapter to chapter at a well suited speed adding phrases or new words that build on previous chapters. Listening daily is recommended - great for trips to and from work!


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I wouldnt listen to this all in one sitting. Once you complete a chapter or two since you are learning - you need the time for your brain to process and learn the new information in each chapter. They make this audiobook a good mental challenge and it does work out your mind which will need a rest :)
