Great way to learn names of objects and numbers
on 23 March 2004
My first impression was how primitive this package seemed, but within half an hour I thought it was actually a very good learning program, dispite its simplicity. Silly in looks but very, very effective for learning basic words. It concentrates on spoken Japanese, but there is written japanese in the vocabulary lists.
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.
