Pimsleur Japanese

Pimsleur Japanese Language program is an efficient audio training system designed to teach spoken Japanese language to English speakers.

The Pimsleur Japanese audio program uses a natural mode of interactive communication -- questions and answers; statements and rejoinder; give and take -- beginning with the most-frequently-utilized vocabulary native Japanese speakers use in everyday conversations.

The complete Pimsleur Japanese program consists of 90 lessons divided in three different levels of thirty half hour lessons each.   Level 1 will teach to establish rapport with Japanese speakers and participate in simple and direct conversations on everyday topics such as ordering food and making simple purchases. With Level 2, you will learn to combine more elements to correctly form sentences of increasing length. Level 3 will teach you to converse with growing ease and confidence, narrate and describe in terms of past, present and future using connected discourse of considerable conversational length.  


This is how the program works:

In the lessons the student is required to actively participate in thinking and speaking following the tutor's instructions.

The student listens to a recording on which a native speaker speaks phrases in both the foreign language (Japanese) and explains in the language used for teaching (English).

At varying intervals, the student is prompted to repeat a phrase after the speaker finishes it.

The student is then introduced to a new phrase and the meaning is explained

After repeating several times, the student is asked to repeat a previous phrase, along with integrating vocabulary from the new one.

More new phrases are introduced, while old phrases are prompted at random. The random recall is designed to associate words with meanings.
