Japanese for dummies

This was a really good umm...production, book, whatever, some of the translations are not exact but are given the same basic meaning. The japanese speaker says the words clearly and reapeats them after a while so it can soak in. If your trying to learn the language (like me) its definitely worth the $18 as a way to review or get used to the language.

Wow, really?

I only heard the preview, and that was plenty. Please don't refer to "Mr. Smith" as "Smith-sama" - I can not recommend this just based on the preview alone. If you know some basic Japanese, you know that it is not necesarally appropriate to refer to someone as -sama. Definitely would have been more appropriate to use -san for general teaching. -sama has much more of a meaning than -san, and if you were to start calling everyone you spoke with -sama, you'd get some funny looks for sure, not to mention it might even come off as rude or sarcastic. (Like referring to someone as "Your highness" would come off to an English speaker.)
