I think this works best for listeners who are already studying the basics, like vocabulary and grammar. For an absolute beginner, it may be overwhelming. I study Japanese on and off (and it probably helps that I took two years worth of academic courses in high school), and I am happy to note that I understood almost all of this lesson, and it's free!
It's really great for review, and for me, it helps cement the basic grammatical structure of the language without the dry and tedious grammar lessons that are typical of academia-based courses. Academia is great if you are majoring in the language from an expert linguist or university-level perspective, but for someone who just wants to start speaking naturally as quickly as possible, I find this much more helpful. Academic/linguistic reductionism can wait until you've at least learned some basic vocabulary and phrases! Anyway, that's why 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 grammar, but for the price (free), it's very good!
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.
