    Speak Like a Local

    I went through four different conversational Japanese cassette courses obtained from my library, but never got past the first cassette. Then I got Pimssleur. It was terrific, their method of teaching was so different from the others, that I found I actually enjoying learning!! No books, no writing, just my Walkman. When I got to Japan, I spoke what I had learned with confidence, and people responded thinking I was fluent in the language, which of course I wasn't, it was then that I broke down and asked in perfect Japanese if they spoke English. The most flattering compliment I kept getting was how excellent my pronunciation was. All I could think was 'Thank you Pimssleur'.
