Useful and Practical

For those who want to expand their knowledge from Vol. 2. As with all audio lessons on a language, it is necessary for the listener to have some knowledge of the language already, to really get the benefit. I found the content to be practical for a person wanting to visit Japan and get by on a basic level. I enjoy the music and the voices used. I'm a fan of the earworms series.

Better than some

Even though I have had problems with other language programs in the past I was able to complete all of the lessons in units 1 and 2 fairly easily. However, I found it difficult to remember what I had learned outside of the context of replying to the speaker in the lesson. Someone asked me what I had learned and to my amazement I could think of no reply.

A good quick fix part 2

This is part two of the earmworms Japanese Course. This course uses a music background with a native and English speaker going over Japanese phrases and words. The course tends to provide a sentence, in English, and then in Japanese and then breaks down all the words in the sentence, and the pronunciations for the words. The course is similar to the other earworms courses, and if you liked one of the others I imagine you'll like this one.



It's not a bad idea, although the tunes are not that great, I find that I can recall some of the sentences. A good supplement for learning, or for a quick fix before heading on holiday.

Absolutely game changing

I have actually bought 4x earworms books in total now; Polish, Greek and Japanese 1+2. I bought the Polish and Greek before my holidays to each country and it was so brilliant being able to throw out some few phrases and order food etc while I was there. These are so brilliant. I have never been very good at languages but I have been shocked at how quickly I have picked these up with the help of earworms. I would love to see a volume 3 4 5 and 6 for Japanese, they’re just so enjoyable to learn from. If you want to use the Japanese book to learn a bit more in depth then I also recommend learning the hiragana alphabet separately too so you can imagine the words and how they are formed. But if you just want to chat a few phrases before a holiday then no need to bother with that. Thank you earworms!
