Customer Reviews

I love this podcast!

Whenever I have some extra time, I listen to the Japanesepod101 cast-- it's easy and fun. Japanese is an extremely intimidating language for non-native speakers, but this podcast makes it much more approachable. I would definitely recommend it for anyone that is interested in learning conversational Japanese or is planning on visiting Japan anytime soon. I love the hosts, and the website has useful pdf files with the phrases written in English and Japanese.

Practical, friendly, powerful

In a sea of average podcasts, there stands a new entrant. Japanesepod101 is built on the principle of meeting our learning needs in a creative, innovative and powerful way. This team really cares about the quality of their offering and demonstrates a strong concern for their listeners. I am a beginning student of Japanese (for business purposes) and I have experimented with every resources imaginable (classes, flash cards, books, language CDs). Japanesepod101 has become my mentor for learning. Once you try this podcast, you will be addicted. The presenters are cheerful, caring and enthusiastic. Their website provides PDF files to supplement each broadcast. Well, I just gotta close by saying thank you to my new friends Peter-san and Sakura-san at Japanesepod101. Please keep up the good work! (Gambate kudasai!).

An excellent resource for students of Japanese language and culture

The team at JapanesePod101 makes learning the Japanese language convenient, easy, and fun. Each lesson is about 10-13 minutes long, which makes it very convenient to listen to while driving, working out, waiting in line etc. The lessons are well organized and structured, and each one introduces new concepts while building upon the previous lessons. Before you realize it, you'll be having conversations in Japanese. Because they introduce just a few new words in each lesson, you never feel overwhelmed. Each new word is presented several times by native Japanese speakers, both at regular conversational speed and broken down by syllables. Peter, Sakura and the rest of the crew are very enthusiastic about teaching Japanese language and culture, and it shows in their lessons They really make you feel at ease when learning. You don't feel like you're in a classroom, it's more like you're having a private tutoring lesson from a Japanese friend. If you are serious about studying Japanese, you need to subscribe to this podcast. This should be required for anyone taking Japanese language classes.
