Publisher's Summary

Want to expand your Japanese vocabulary with almost no effort? Then keep reading.

Are you planning a trip to Asia? Or sharpening your skills for work? Just press play on this audiobook when you’re sleeping, meditating, or doing chores around the house.

Learn new vocabulary while actively listening or passively while you’re doing other things.

This audiobook contains:

  • More than 1,000 common Japanese words and phrases
  • All original music (composed and performed by South African DJ and producer Spirante Beat), specifically to relax your mind

I'm sure your first question is: Can you actually learn a foreign language while you’re asleep? Well, according to a Swiss research study in 2014, the answer is unassailably yes! In this study, a group of German speakers was given a list of unfamiliar Dutch words to study. Half were instructed to get some sleep while they listened to long lists of Dutch words and translations. The other half was instructed to stay awake. Four hours later, they were tested, and the group that listened while they slept had significantly higher recall. The study concluded that people can indeed absorb new information passively during non-REM sleep—which is the deep sleep we get in the first few hours of the night.

This audiobook is divided into six chapters, each with different kinds of vocabulary, and with different music. Choose a different chapter each night, or loop the audiobook to have a continuous stream. Some listeners—those with more experience with the foreign language—have reported that these recordings allow them to dream in that language!

Sit back, relax, enjoy, and learn!

A great tool

This is a real hidden gem! It is really simple and enjoyable to listen to, and truth after fact left me in awe. I can easily imagine my niece listening to this before night to unwind, and I'm even thinking of giving my primary-aged pupils a few facts every day. adore it

Amazing audiobook to learn a new language!

So far so good. Similar to the Spanish course I took and I expect it to go really well. I learned during sleep easily. This Japanese course is really good.

The book is easy to listen.

This audiobook is great for someone that wants to learn the basics of Japanese. I want to go on a trip to Tokyo for that I listen and learn. There are a lot of simple and useful words and phrases for beginners.

Wonderful listen!

This audiobook is a wonderful tool for learning a language and a good performance by the Narrator will enable any listener to gain command in speaking at a level that most speakers would understand. It's easy to learn while sleeping. Thanks.

Amazing!

Learning while you sleep isnt something I had heard of before, but this audiobook was recommended to me and I decided to give it a try and wow! After days of listening to this while I sleep I am already seeing progress in my learning . I love that its separated into six chapters so that I can concentrate on one chapter per night. Highly recommend! Thank you!

I loved it!

Ok so disclaimer: I did NOT listen to this book while I was sleeping. I listened while I was awake and cooking or baking in the kitchen. These tasks for me are easy so I can set my brain to autopilot while I do them. I don't know if being able to use half my brain so to speak had an impact on how well I was able to retain the information from this book but i was able to pick up a bunch of new words I didn't know before. All in all I'd say this book helped me Improve my language skills and i do reccomend it to others.

Sceptical at first.

so, I was definitely sceptical at first about this "learning in my sleep" business but now I'm a believer. It doesn't work from the first try. you have to listen to it a few times, but it really does work. I found myself picking up more and more words the more I listened, and I couldn't be happier with my purchase of this book.

Relaxing voice and very helpful

Loved this audiobook to support my learning Japanese. I definitely think it helped me learn how to pronounce things better than if I had just started reading a book about this. The words and phrases you learn are actually things you can use in daily life which was impressive. I'm glad I got it. Also, the ambient music behind the reading is so relaxing. You'll definitely want this if you're trying to learn Japanese!

Like scifi!

What's easier than learning something in your sleep? it's like science fiction but it's REAL! I couldn't believe it myself but the science doesn't lie.
