Good teaching technique but too redundant

The technique used by this 'sensei' is very effective to help learn vocabulary and pronunciation but the 30 lessons do little to build on each other and the same words and phrases are repeated way too much.
There's only so many times that the pronunciation of kudasai (please) or ‘does this bus/train go to … ?’ needs to be repeated.
The 2h46m could probably fit in half the time.
The “Sachiko Secrets” in many of the lessons are helpful but also sometimes repeated.
The first 10 lesson are available as free podcasts and the next 20 lessons have a lot of reduncy so I feel like I'm paying for 10 lessons, not 30.

Well Worth the Money!

By far the best of all the audiobooks I sampled. Was very pleased with all the lessons. Tremendous value!

Well done

The instructor for these is really excellent. She gives lots of interesting information on culture and speaks each phrase slowly as well as at normal speed. The lessons are clear and easy to understand. It would be wonderful if part 2 would work correctly also. However this one works great and is well put together. Thank you for making this.
