NOTE: All of our Japanese lessons involve specific situations such as a coffee shop, a graphic design company, etc., but the sentences and vocabulary you will learn are not limited to those specific situations. We use the situations as a framework to help you learn more natural sounding sentence patterns as well as to make the lessons more interesting and fun.
In this Japanese lesson you’ll listen to a conversation between Bill and Tomoko as they sit at a coffee shop. Bill is a fitness buff, and Tomoko is interested in getting in shape.
You’ll learn casual Japanese conversation by hearing and repeating sentence patterns. And, like all of our lessons, the setting of the lesson simply gives a framework for learning the sentence patterns and applying them to a larger vocabulary.
All of our Japanese lessons are designed to be stand-alone lessons. You do not need to follow them in any particular order, nor do you have to have any previous experience with Japanese. Just listen and repeat.
You will receive an MP3 file, compatible with any player.
