Description

With this fun, user-friendly, and uniquely visual Japanese language course, you can teach yourself Japanese in just 12 weeks.

DK's 15-Minute Japanese--now relaunching with a new free audio app--is the perfect course for busy people who want to learn Japanese fast. Twelve themed chapters are broken down into easy-to-follow 15-minute daily lessons, spanning a range of practical themes, including socializing, doing business, food and drink, travel, and shopping.

Each lesson combines vocabulary and grammar essentials with attractive full-color photographs, making it quick, easy, and fun to learn new Japanese vocabulary. There is no writing or homework--you simply use the cover flaps to hide the answers to exercises and test yourself as you learn. Each chapter ends with a review module, so you can track your progress and identify any areas where you need further practice.

The free audio app enables you to hear Japanese words and phrases spoken by native speakers. You can also record yourself, compare with native speakers, and re-record as desired. Use the app alongside the book's easy-to-use pronunciation guides to perfect your pronunciation and practice Japanese conversation in real-life situations. Whether you're starting from scratch or just in need of a refresher course, there's no easier way to learn Japanese than with 15-Minute Japanese.

15-Minute Audio App:
All the numbered exercises in each lesson, apart from the Warm ups at the beginning and the Say it exercises at the end, have recorded audio, available via a free app. The app also includes a function to record yourself and listen to yourself alongside native speakers.

The app is available on the App Store and Google Play. Once it has been downloaded, each time a title is purchased, the audio for that title can be downloaded to the user's device and used alongside the book.
