The English indefinite article a does not exist in Japanese. Unlike English, a noun on its own can be considered indefinite without the need for a specific word to show this.
Speak! Japanese is based on a natural learning process - you practice simple grammar and vocabulary tasks repeatedly until Speak! decides that you have learned the material in sufficient depth to progress to the next level. In this way, you'll advance from the basics to more complex sentence structures at your own speed in just the same way a child learns a language - seeing, listening and responding over an extended period of time.
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.

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.
