      "I have always wanted to visit Japan but have been reluctant, as I can only speak English. Japanese language lessons is somewhat out of the question for me, until I discovered these twenty four lessons. Now I can learn the Japanese language at my on pace and on my designated schedule. I am sure I won't be fluent in the Japanese Language after studying these lessons but I am certain that I will be able to break the communication barrier. Thus, my past desire to visit Japan has rekindled."

      "After trying to pick up Japanese by using nothing but books, it was so much more helpful to hear the language spoken. Trying to understand how pitch and accents play a part in forming different words makes so much more sense when actually hearing someone say it aloud and explain the difference. I would definitely recommend this Youtube channel!"

      "Learning a language is difficult for most and especially me. I would love to learn Chinese and I stumbled across "Learn It Now Chinese & Japanese Premier." This book which can be downloaded on multiple computers says that you can learn Chinese and Japanese (Mandarin) in as little as 30 days. It seems like a great concept but, I am a skeptic only because of my previous difficulties of learning a foreign language. However, the price is low enough that I may consider it since it is downloadable and I can have it forever to use and learn."

Because of this, I was just too engulfed in a fit of laughter to actually learn anything. Additionally, this Japanese language learning site fails to provide any questionable images of schoolgirls and tentacles, making me question whether it's actually legitimately aware of the country's culture at all."

      "If you've ever learned Japanese, you know that it's next to impossible to do without a good textbook (or several). Read Japanese Today is one of the best textbooks for learning the language I know. It teaches you kanji, the basic characters of the Japanese language. By the time you work through this book you should have rudimentary reading knowledge."
