Linguaphone Comprehensive Acquisition Bundle for Japanese
The Linguaphone Comprehensive Acquisition Course is truly comprehensive instruction. The power and effectiveness of this course is due to the multi-faceted teaching methods that are employed. Many courses on the market today will list everything that you will learn line-by-line. Linguaphone courses teach you the language and how to use it. When you're finished with the course, you will not be able to simply repeat the phrases that you've learned, you will be able to create your own sentences and have your own conversations. Linguaphone will give you the necessary tools to actually use your new language and make it a part of yourself. Through the use of the Comprehensive Acquisition Course, you will quickly train and develop the 4 primary language skills: Comprehension (Listening & Understanding), Speaking, Reading, and Writing. Unlike traditional methods of learning a new language, with the Linguaphone method of language acquisition, you are in complete control of your learning. The courses were created with many different learning styles in mind. You can go as fast or as slow as you see fit. You won't be bogged down with endless, mind-numbing repetition and won't feel left behind.

Beginning Japanese Course
(Now available in a CD version!)
This book and cassette/CD course is perfect for independent or small group study, and is thorough, comprehensive, and widely regarded as the best available. This course provides introductory teaching materials for spoken Japanese in the "standard" dialect of educated inhabitants of Tokyo, and is intended for general use by English speakers. Special attention has been given both in the text and in the tapes to make this course as useful as possible for self-instruction. Learning to speak the language at normal speed is emphasized since the aim of the course is to teach you to understand and speak the everyday language just as it is spoken by the Japanese. Although not developed by the Foreign Service Institute, this course follows the FSI model in every respect, with a method that focuses on guided imitation, and whose aim is an automatic ability to speak the language. It comes in two levels with the second continuing in the same format as the first. Level One comes with 15 tapes or 17 CDs and a book; Level Two with 16 tapes and a book.
Level 1 - Cassette
