Product Description Product Description

With Japanese Level 1&2 you build a foundation and navigate your surroundings. Learn fundamental vocabulary and essential language structure, from greetings and introductions to simple questions and their answers. Gain the confidence to talk about your environment; giving and getting directions, telling time, dining out, shopping, enjoying basic social interactions and much more.


Why is Rosetta Stone the world's No. 1 language-learning software? Because it works.

Escape the endless tedium of translation, memorization, and grammar drills. Get the language you want, the skills you need and the success you deserve by learning a new language naturally--the same way you learned your first language.


The complete immersion environment puts your native language-learning skills to work, eliminating your dependence on tedious translation and rote memorization.

  Images Intuition  

In Rosetta Stone you learn the meaning of new language from clear, real-life images.

In this activity you learn colors.

You advance using language you've learned and clues from new images. That's your intuition at work.

Now that you know colors, you can easily grasp the meaning of the new words...

  Interactivity Instruction  

Throughout Rosetta Stone, you constantly interact with the program to confirm your intuition.

...and then check what you've learned.

From beginning to end you build systematically toward your language-learning goals, for the most effective and enjoyable instruction anywhere.

And finally, you get the fun of trying your new language in a real-life simulation. Speech recognition shows you exactly how you're doing.


You learned your first language without translation.
You learned your first language easily and naturally by connecting words to objects and events around you. With Rosetta Stone, learn a new language the same way: using native speakers and thousands of real-life images to help you think in the new language from the very beginning. Studies show that learning exclusively in the new language, without translation as a crutch, is crucial.

The exclusive Dynamic Immersion method reinforces your natural language-learning skills with award-winning instructional technology. Identify your learning goals, then choose customized courses that take you there.

The timeless immersion method, along with research-based techniques and new technologies, make Rosetta Stone the clear solution to your language-learning needs.

HASH(0xb40bd2c4) out of 5 stars Rosetta Stone v3 Japanese Level 1&2 April 28 2008
By Ruth Merritt - Published on
Verified Purchase
Our family is moving to Japan in 3 months and I wanted to have my kids aged 8, 9 and 12 to learn a little Japanese. I was so surprised when my kids actually started making up sentences and identifying the Japanese symbols in less than a week. I love the fact that you can take as much time as you need to learn to pronounce the words/phrases over and over. It's better than having a private tutor. However, the best part is, it's fun and interactive and the kids love it! I highly recommend Rosetta Stone to anyone.

HASH(0xb40bf228) out of 5 stars Excellent Method to learn a new language! April 15 2008
By S. Macdonald - Published on
I just bought this software and I am thoroughly enjoying it! My boyfriend (who is Japanese) and I will be traveling to Japan this summer so I purchased this so I could learn as much as possible before we go. It's amazing how much I've learned in just under a week. What makes this software so great is that it truely provides a natural way to learn a new language. It's perfect for everyone and every learning style because it teaches through visual stimulus of photos and foreign text, native speakers, and your own intuition. I expected to learn to speak Japanese, but this software is also teaching me to read and write Japanese! I'll revise this review again in a few weeks to report on my progress.
~ the only negative is that the software has a nasty little habit of freezing ~ hopefully they'll have an update out soon to fix this

I have to say this is the best way to learn a new language. I have just started and so far I love it because I identify objects without having to do a translation in my head.

By Jenny from the block - Published on
This item was purchased as a gift for my husband- he works for a Japanese company and takes a trip to Japan each year for business. Though his time spent using this product has been limited- he has learned a few basic words and seems to really enjoy this product.
