waste of time

I found this book to be such a disappointment. I am planning a trip to Japan and want to learn enough to converse in day to day situations. sadly, this was not a useful resource. it was mostly vocabulary, much of it not likely to come up in a casual conversation. they devote a couple chapters just to the world's countries. I was looking forward to the phrases segment but even that was a huge disappointment. the author's idea of important phrases is "I don't speak Spanish", "will you marry me?", and "I just want to be friends.". other than learning the numbers and months, I don't feel like I got anything useful out of this book. it was even hard to understand the speaker at times because of her accent. please don't waste your money.

it sounds like a robot is giving you the lesson

I have no idea who thought it was a good idea to have a robotic voice do an audiobook.

Consistent audio book

I founf this book structured and understandable, I don't remember all words, but I learned pronunciation at least.
It was a bit boring at times though, I would wish some more creative chapters in between to have more fun learning.

This book makes learning a new language a snap.

This is the best manual for becoming familiar with the essentials of Japanese Words and Phrases. The book begins from nuts and bolts which are the Portuguese's letters in order followed by the elocution guide and numerous others. This has been a major assistance.

Excellent language resource.

This is a particularly fun minimal Japanese audience for fledglings. I was completely delighted in it. A few entries were somewhat over my head, yet I work with the right guide in my articulation and interpretation.
