Within a couple of days I knew how to count in japanese, the names of various foods, clothing, objects etc. It is a fun and fast way to learn if you look on it with a sense of humour.
I would recommend this to anyone of any age at all if you want to learn the names of objects or start looking at Japanese words. When you want to learn sentances you are going to need to graduate to another package very soon. Its a great starting point though and well worth the money. Very confidence building. It makes language fun instead of dull or intimidating.
I have just bought intermediate level 'World Talk Japanese' - the 'intermediate' stage from this company - but don't feel able to review it yet.
Grammer occasionally comes up in the useful phrases section but isn't explained at all making it impossible to use outside of the given context. Questions are given but not the possible answers to them which defeats the object of knoing how to ask!
The scripts which are vital for understanding the language are used in example but not even explained let alone taught.
The one advantage this cd rom has over some of the great language books out there is the spoken examples. If you are serious about learning the language I would recommend starting with learning the hiragana and katakana and leaving this cd rom out altogether.
This software does not appear to be compatible with the new Intel iMacs, stating that "classic mode is no-longer supported". So owners of Intel iMacs should only purchase if they have some kind of software to get around this problem.
