Publisher's Summary

Having trouble following dialogues on your favorite Japanese anime, series, and movies?

Do you want to have conversations with Japanese speakers like a native?

If your answer to any of the previous questions was "yes", then this audiobook is for you!

One of the most crucial skills you will gain as a language learner is the ability to speak like a native. Using the right words, tone, and formality is key to mastering the language, and Japanese is no different!

Because of this, we have compiled over 100 conversational Japanese stories for beginners along with their translations, allowing new Japanese speakers to obtain the necessary tools to know how to set a meeting, rent a car, or tell a doctor that they don’t feel well. If speaking the language natively is your goal, this audiobook is for you!

How Conversational Japanese Dialogues works:

  • Each new section will have a fresh, new story between two people who wish to solve a common, day-to-day issue that you will surely encounter in real life.
  • A Japanese version of the conversation will take place first. Here, we will challenge your skills by allowing you to listen to the dialogue in its original tongue; you will learn how to read and pronounce each word like a native!
  • Accurate English translations follow each Japanese conversation, providing you with the opportunity to understand everything that has been said.
  • A helpful introduction and conclusion that will offer you important strategies, tips and tricks to allow you to get the most out of this learning material.

We want you to feel comfortable while learning the tongue; after all, no language should be a barrier for you to travel around the world and expand your online and offline social circles!

Serious approach and compelling dialogues

This book brings detailed translations for day-to-day examples, which you can adapt for all sorts of conversations. It provides a range of topics and expressions you would likely witness in everyday exchanges.

I enjoyed the size of the chapters, each content with practicable length, and they get more and more complex and challenging towards the end of the book, as they go a little more in-depth. I believe dialogues are the best way to create a context in a way that reinforces comprehension.

Each chapter presents a glossary at the end and quiz questions that helped me build my vocabulary. As an introduction to Japanese, it allowed me to expand my listening and reading skills. I recommend reading the sentences out loud while listening for further practice, listening to each chapter a second and third times.

Really good!

This is really good way for beginners to immerse in the language and work on their reading and listening practice. While this is certainly not for people who are totally new to the language (you need to have decent amount of vocabulary and grammar knowledge already to get the most out of this I think) I would highly recommend.

Unlike the Japanese short stories for beginners by Lingo Mastery which I would also recommend, these conversations are short, very relatable to everyday scenarios and most importantly in my opinion use informal language. The Japanese you will encounter everyday, and which is most commonly used. While I do enjoy the short stories, the use of formal language (masu forms etc.) makes this audiobook the best for learners.

Having said this the short stories do have vocabulary lists and these books do not which is why you must have a good amount of vocab before diving in. Then any unknown words you come across you can to your anki decks or however you learn vocab.

I hope there will be a second version of the conversations.

One of the best studying materials on Audible

I have been studying the Japanese language for two years now. "Conversational Japanese Dialogues" is a rich material with step-by-step learning that helps to increase your skills using the provided tips and tricks. The short stories are also an excellent way to get a better perspective on both Japanese culture and language.

Great for N4 level

This is great (the same goes for the short stories in the same series) but a little too tough for me at times (I'm between N5 and N4 level), so not really for true beginners. It is clearly a great resource (one of the best out there it seems) if/when you're ready for it though. I also love the American voices in the translations! One thing I'm not too keen on is that the conversations are between people with names like Wilson and Olivia, talking about San Francisco and backyard barbecues in Japanese, which is a bit weird! Why not use some Japanese names/ places etc?! Still highly recommend this to strong elementary/ pre-int level students, though!
