Engaging story makes me want to learn more

Any additional comments?

I am not yet at intermediate level of Japanese, but I bought this audiobook anyway. I really like the stories that the teachers use to teach the language. There are some interesting characters and scenarios. Plus there are some fairy tales and culture put into everything in an easy way.

It is also a fun listen because the speakers seem to have good senses of humor. The wit, even with a second language, is evident, and they all seem to enjoy working with each other.

Excellent

This format is the most fun that I've experienced. Casual banter slips back and forth between the two languages so you don't get off track. Plus the pdf is very helpful.

Mark

Would you try another book from Innovative Language Learning and/or the narrators?

Innovative Language Learning has potential, but I wouldn't try another book with the same narrators.

What could Innovative Language Learning have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

I really think this intermediate Japanese audio book would be better suited for a Japanese speaker trying to learning English. There were several occasions where they just rambled on in English in situations that were completely irrelevant to learning Japanese.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

Several times the narrators seem to descend into slapstick nonsense. They appeared to be amusing themselves, but this was neither funny or helpful to the listener. They even referenced inside jokes as a reason for their buffoonery. It was just a huge distraction to learning Japanese.

What character would you cut from Learn Japanese - Level 7: Intermediate Japanese, Volume 1: Lessons 1-83?

I would cut out all the slapstick nonsense and make this a more serious lesson.

Easy Listening

It is very informative and easy to just listen to in the background. The narrators are great at explaining everything well!
