What do you guys think of Pimsleur?
I've begun using it and it's really awesome. It won't teach you how to write, but my conversational skills are increasing exponentially.
I'm not a native English speaker, but the English explanations are very clear and easy to follow; if you're on 4chan you can probably use it even if you're not American.
Pair this with Heisig and we have a winner.

PS: There's a nice torrent on piratebay with all the lessons.

i have it downloaded since fucking ages, never bothered to use it. i might now though.

>> No.5490340

Well, it's pretty cool because you can use it while eating, fapping, lying on the bed with your eyes closed or whatever. Perfect for lazy faggots like us.

>> No.5490583

How does pimsleur + heisig combined compare with using rosetta stone for example?

If you want to go around basically being nothing more than a Japanese speaking Parrot, then Pimsleur is the solution for you!

>> No.5490646

Some parrots are actually quite intelligent.

>> No.5490784

Well I've tried Rosseta and it's slow as fuck and you don't really learn much. Tons of worthless lessons like writing in romaji (wtf?).

What are you talking about? the method is repeating stuff, yes, but there's also this guy talking in English explaining grammar and whatnot.
Care to point to a better self-taught approach?

>> No.5490833

Anything that teaches you how to write. Anything at all.

>> No.5490879

Uh, it obviously doesn't teach how to write.
That's why I said I'm using Heisig on the side.
If I can listen and talk in moonspeak, and read and write moonrunes, what the fuck am I missing?

>> No.5490936

SERIOUSLY. You should learn Japanese from anime instead OP. What kind of idiot learns from Pimsluers?

Hahahah, I know that image is a joke, but a lot of people think the last statement is correct.
It's not, adults have an easier time learning languages. You're capable of understanding much more and advancing at a quicker pace than when you were a stupid child.

>> No.5491166

thats not true either since alot adults actually degrade and are much more dense as they grow old

>> No.5491177

Well, those idiots wouldn't want to learn additional languages anyway

>> No.5491185

Teens and Adults actually learn much faster than children.

I think this method is pretty cool and it's not like I'm samefagging to bump my own thread, seriously.

>> No.5492567

I bought the Pimsleur Japanese set about 5 years ago and listened to it to and from work in the car. It was nowhere near as good as learning in a classroom for grammar, but I got it for listening and speaking practice.
