  • hi
    a day
  • ona-no-hito
    a woman
  • otoko-no-hito

    a girl

Reviews for Speak! Japanese

Product Rating
Good enough
Runs smoothly and hasn't killed my computer yet. The graphics are responsive enough for function but the icons are a little picky about how you click them; I type a response and it keeps making me retype if if I go too quickly or do something it doesn't like. The course is a bit more like flashcards than I had hoped but I can't say I'm not learning the words. All in all, I'd call it supplementary.

Fully satisfied
I am fully satisfied with the audio book and the software. You start off easy and move on automatically to the next lesson, if you answer correctly. The settings are also easy to use in order to individualize the learning process. The voice recognition is not very accurate, but it serves its purpose as as a tool to practice and improve your pronunciation.
