I started reading this and had finished within a week. I thought it was funny and interesting and i thoroughly enjoyed it
Yes, i agree with some of the other reviews, in that it is fairly self indulgent, but that is to be expected with this kind of story. I found a lot of the anecdotes entertaining, plus lots of interesting things about the countries she visits as she goes along. It's very genuine and honest and that comes across throughout. It feels very real
I could relate to the character is some ways and not others; i think if you cannot relate at all then you will probably find this book a little heavy going and stuggle to keep interest.
Michel Thomas Method: Japanese Introductory Course
I bought this two-disc introductory course at the beginning of January.
I have found it very useful (as in i have now learnt all of the contents) but it does only contain the first two discs of the Foundation Course anyway.. Which means when i do buy the Foundation Course i'll be starting from a qtr of the way in. In hindsight i probably would have just gone ahead and bought the Foundation Course but if you're completely new to learning languages this is a good idea as it gives you a feel for the format and provides an indication of it's suitability for you.
It helps provide you with the sentance structures and minimal vocabulary - which is great because as you learn more words (nouns etc) you instantly know how to use them on sentances.
If you listen to it enough times it is almost impossible to forget. Plus the Japanese native speaker is very helpful
Berlitz Language: Japanese Compact Dictionary
5 New from
I have just started learning Japanese - i chose to learn on my own at my own pace. This is the best dictionary i could find for a complete beginner as it has the Romanisation of the words and if you're looking to start with just talking then it's a good purchase
