Great for any beginner or great for a refresher.

I took some classes in college but I have since forgotten most of the Japanese that I learned. I wanted a little refresher so I decided to purchase this book. It was exactly what I was looking for. The author did a good job with the organization and explanation.

Japan travel guide.

We should learn the Japanese language as a part of our travel plan to Japan so that we can enjoy the maximum during the travel. This book is very useful for self-learners to master the Japanese language words and phrases within a short period.

Ready for more content from Immersion Langauge.

The speaker's voice is very profound, slow, and is easily understood. Very professional and quality audio. Japanese to English translations in the book are a nice touch l found to learn the language quickly. I'd say a little advanced for complete beginners, so it's probably a good idea to start with a base of Japanese first.

It really helped me to speak this language easily

This is an excellent reference to learning the fundamentals of Japanese . I had a friend from Japan and he skilled me a few words and phrases in Japanese and I fell in love with the language so I wanted to learn more. It is not only a vocabulary book like most of the other language books but it also provides the grammatical rules of the language.

Having fun with this!

I'm very particular about what materials I use to learn languages. I speak 4 languages currently and this audiobook is a friendly reminder of what level I'm at. Japanese is such a wonderful language and to have a fun way to learn makes me happy.

Precious material!

Excellent! I never had a great resource for foreign languages that provided real-world situations to learn from. Having the vocabulary of the story broken down into easily manageable parts is a cool idea. The narration in both English and Japanese languages is clear and easy to understand.

I have to say I forgot I was learning Japanese ! The narrator has a friendly and distinct voice which makes for learning a language a breeze. I have listened to this audiobook a couple of times and still find little Japanese nuggets of information. Get this audiobook!

Great book with great ideas.

Although the book is written with primary/beginner learners in mind I would still recommend this audiobook for anyone who speaks even a little Japanese . The Words and Phrases increase in depth as you progress through the audiobook, which I found pretty cool. Keep up the good work
