Great supplemental aid

I live and work in Japan but even in this complete immersive environment I use all the learning aids I can get. This audiobook is a great supplemental aid in speeding up learning Japanese but that all it is, a suplement. If learning is what you want this will help but if used with a book, a Japanese instructor, and/or Japanese speaking friends. You can learn any language with any of those but if you want to learn quickly so I use them all. My only problem with this audiobook is that I don't agree with some of the English/Japanese matching. It is an interpreted translation and this does well enough.

Learn in Your Car: Japanese, Level 2

This is designed for the car, so it is better than some other sources that require you to look at a book. The only problem is that they translate many English phrases directly. For example, they nearly always have the Japanese speaker include words like "I" and "We" in the Japanese translation, when Japanese speakers almost never include these words. When the subject is obvious, they omit it. Therefore, some of the Japanese they use is unnatural. Once you understand that, this audio is quite helpful.
