The Pimsleur® Method is scientifically proven to be your fastest route to near-native fluency. Speak and understand Japanese in just 30 minutes a day. Japanese Phase 1, Units 16-20 build on material taught in prior units. Each lesson provides 30 minutes of spoken language practice, with an introductory conversation, and new vocabulary and structures. Detailed instructions enable you to understand and participate in the conversation. Each lesson contains practice for vocabulary introduced in previous lessons. The emphasis is on pronunciation and comprehension, and on learning to speak Japanese.

"Pimsleur programs provide plenty of positive reinforcement that will keep learners on track, and we found that Pimsleur gave us more proficiency and confidence in speaking the new language than any of the other language programs we reviewed." (AudioFile magazine)
If you want to learn basic Japanese this is a great place to start. I am working on chapter 18 and can't say enough good things about the Pimsleur Programs.
Just your average fantasy/sci-fi loving girl
It's great that the words are broken down into syllables and each lesson builds very nicely onto the last. I certainly feel so much more comfortable speaking Japanese now! Nihongo ga wakarimasuka?
