I am going to Japan later this year. I wanted to know some basic phrases so I could make an effort of being polite to my hosts. This product claimed to IPOD compatible. I know my way around computers fairly well, but after repeated attempts I cannot get it to sync to the IPOD. So, buyer beware. I hope you have more luck than I did. The booklet is okay.

Not bad for repitition practice March 7 2009
By E. Balderson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
If you're learning Japanese, this could serve as good supplementary material to just have someone to repeat after everyday, and let you get a good feel on the language

Good for a dedicated iPod Nov. 27 2007
By R. Getter - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
A sort of handy iPod phrase book if you're really fast with menus. The only catch is that you need to be someone who never shuffles songs, only uses playlists, or wants to dedicate an iPod (with a display--forget the Shuffle) to the content. Otherwise, the 1,000+ files will intermingle with your music files. This would have been MUCH more useful if the files were set up as podcasts so they wouldn't mix with your music files. Also, keep in mind that this is just a phrase-book. The files are only 10-20 seconds long, so it's not very useful if you're trying to actually learn anything. If the price was any higher, it would have only gotten a single star. At $12, buyer's regret isn't too much of an issue for me.
not accurate or easy to use Sept. 24 2012
By mary - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I bought 3 programs, wanting one that would allow me to sleep and learn. This one is just phrases and they are not all accurate. For instance, the "I don't speak Japanese" actually translates to "I don't understand Japanese". With 3 programs that I could compare; there were a few other differences too. The book is cheaply made (but easy to copy) and the mp3 files loaded easily to my idod in a separate play list in approximately 5 minutes. (For my plane trip to Japan, I have added my own music to this playlist, so i can be immersed while sleeping.)I really liked the Pimsleur Approach of learning a foriegn language in 10 days the best before I left so I could use the language not just phrases. The price is the same and it was shipped as well as instantly downloadable, vs. waiting for this to come in the mail.

is it really a phrasebook? Aug. 1 2010
By T. Powell - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Does it play the audio for both the English and the Japanese (or only the Japanese)?
