WARNING: poor quality recording of an old man with a lisp chatting up a young woman
on 1 May 2013
I brought it, tried it, and regret it.
WARNING: don't waste your money on the audio CD. It sounds like the audio was converted from an old tape recording of an old man talking in a tunnel... oh, and my Japanese friend confirmed he has a lisp!
This is also creepy... seriously! Example: "Berlitz Japanese lesson 17: What Do You Like?"... Old guy: "which teacher do you like?" Young woman: "I like the history teacher"... Clearly, Berlitz are going for a very specific market here...
Someone should have told this old guy he is past it and can't pronounce his native language well enough to teach it. This is a great example for everyone wanting to learn about Japan - specifically, why their economic is stagnant and why companies like Toyota end up with 'safety issues'.
They should have hired a guy off the street with a good mike on his phone and access to a quiet room.
