"...after 26 years of teaching English as a second language,

– and Rocket Japanese is it!"

 

Testimonial

My name is Margaret Garland, and after 26 years of teaching English as a second language, I knew what I was looking for when I started searching for a Japanese language course – and Rocket Japanese is it! 

The audio lessons are very well done, and user friendly. The newsletters are well designed to help with grammar, sentence structure and cultural tips.

Being able to go over and over the conversation is great, especially for someone who is 78 years old.  Why would someone my age want to learn Japanese?  Well, I’ll tell you.  My son is living in Japan and teaching English to Japanese businessmen. 

I have been to visit him three times, and after the last visit I decided to make a real effort to learn Japanese.  By my next visit I intend to be able to talk with his friends and students in Japanese.  I know that Rocket Japanese will be the means by which I can reach that goal.

"Whether you need to learn it for travel, or you just want to learn it for fun
I think there is no better choice than the Rocket Japanese system"

 

Testimonial

Hi, this is Molly.  I just got the Rocket Japanese system and already I have learned a lot more than I would have expected in the first couple of days. 

Not only are the lessons easy to understand, but affordable.  They are set up in a way that is fun and easy to learn.  The games are also very helpful in learning certain words and characters. 

I don’t have a job currently, and ordering this was a breeze, and it was within my budget.  At about one fourth of the cost of a *Competitor* program, it seems to work from what I can guess, just as well, if not better. 

I have wanted to learn Japanese for a while now but never thought I would find something so amazing and rewarding to help get me through it quickly.  I don’t understand why someone would not want to use this system to learn such a beautiful language.  Using Rocket Japanese people will find that it’s not hard to learn a new language, even one that’s quite different from all other languages, as Japanese is. 

Whether you need to learn it for travel or you just want to learn it for fun I think there is no better choice than the Rocket Japanese system.  Thank you.

Learn Japanese Like a ROCKET with Rocket Japanese Premium!

Sayaka Matsuura

Dear Japanese Learner,

It is my pleasure to bring to you the first Asian language learning course from Rocket Languages... Rocket Japanese Premium!!! I am thrilled that I have been given the opportunity to create this course for you.

I know what it's like getting discouraged by the experience of trying to learn a second language in school. It happened to me (when I had to learn English as a second language) and it's happened to most of us when we took a foreign language in school. Rocket Languages recognized years ago that there's a better and easier way to learn a second language, and that's why I am proud to be part of the team that is launching Rocket Japanese Premium...

If you've ever heard that children can pick up a new language faster and easier than adults, forget it. This is a common misconception. In fact, scientific research has proven that the most difficult learning task for children and adults alike may be the attempt to acquire second language proficiency in school environments.

In fact, even more distressing is that research has shown that less than 5 percent of students studying a foreign language are able to endure the stressful nature of formal school training to continue studying the language for more than two years (Asher, James. 1982. Principles and Practice in Second Language Acquisition. New York: Pergamon Press, 9-32).

What better motivation for us to design and create a language learning environment that allows regular people, like you, to speak Japanese confidently and naturally in less than 2 months!

If you want to...

  • feel more comfortable and confident around Japanese speaking people
  • read books, magazines, and web sites written in Japanese
  • watch and understand Japanese movies
  • write to and email Japanese speaking people
  • or you simply want to become exceptional at Japanese for any other reason...

Rocket Japanese Premium will help you achieve your goals in a simple and easy way. The complete package provides you with access to the Rocket Japanese Learning Lounge where will find over 12 hours of audio lessons on the Interactive Audio Course, 31 Grammar Lessons (which include comprehensive cultural notes and lessons on Japanese writing), the hugely popular software-based learning games MegaJapanese (for pronunciation and writing skills) along with the all important self-tests and Rocket Reviews for you to test your progress.

...Whether you just want simply to be able to converse, or in addition, to understand the grammar and learn more extensive vocabulary, the options are there for you. One big benefit... is the enjoyment of all the lessons, we always look forward to the next one. In particular we find the interactive audio lessons very helpful with pronunciations... One important factor of the course is the pleasant voices... easy to listen to and understand.

...If you have any doubts about purchasing... try the free lessons first, as we did, and we are sure you will realise that here is a language course that you can adapt to your own way of learning and one that is fun and a bargain.

I can carry on a basic conversation with the workers, I can meet someone new, I can ask them how they are, where they are from, I can shop at some of the local markets here, I can order in a restaurant. It is an excellent program, it is very simple it's very quick you can listen on your way to work, you can listen to it on your lunch hour, they are excellent, excellently constructed and they really give you a working knowledge of the language. I would highly recommend them to anyone else who is going on a trip... or just wants to be able communicate a little bit better.

It has truly helped me out on my job and I plan on going through them again and probably go through it three or four times. ...I highly recommend it.

Thank you.

You'll learn to listen to, speak, and understand modern Japanese. in Japanese. Here's the transcript for a basic conversation you hear for the very first lesson:

Kenny: Sayaka san, konnichiwa!

Kenny:  I’m good, thank you, and you?
Sayaka:  I’m good too, thank you.

In addition to the conversations themselves, you get extra vocabulary and cultural tips, plus the super helpful Rocket Reviews that begin each new lesson!

What's the Audio Course All About??

The Interactive Audio Course is organized into a narrative that moves from very basic interactions (greetings and survival phrases) to more advanced exchanges (booking a room, talking about sports, dinner conversation).

The lessons also get more challenging in terms of grammar and vocabulary. For example, we'll teach you how to use the basic linking verb desu to build simple sentences, then move on to express continuing action (with te-form verbs), advance to the different types of adjectives (ii-type & na-type) and how and when to use them, and of course much more…

The course is divided in to 6 Parts according to topic and theme:

1) Greeting, Meeting, Food, and Drink
2) Travel
3) Nightlife
4) Arts and Culture
5) Family and Friends
6) Business Japanese

NOTE: Each of the 31 Interactive Audio Lessons comes with a ***corresponding Grammar and Culture lesson*** which allows you to explore the mechanics behind the spoken word. You can learn to speak Japanese without them, but these lessons - which include photos, illustrations, and embedded audio clips - will undoubtedly enhance AND expedite your learning!!

PART 1: Greeting, Meeting, Food, and Drink

Lesson 1.0) Introduction & Greetings [14 min]
In this introductory lesson, Kenny and Sayaka take first things first. You learn how to greet someone and say hello at all different times of the day (it's important to use the right greeting at the right time in Japanese culture!).

You'll also find out why, how, and when to use the expression "san" after a name, and you'll get a crash course on counting to boot!

Lesson 1.1) Basic Introductions [28 min]
In this next lesson you find out how to ask how someone else is doing and reply in turn. You'll learn how to ask someone what their name is, where they are from, and some essential pleasantries by way of saying it was a pleasure to meet someone!

In this lesson, you also find out about the honorific "O" in the Japanese language, the all-important linking verb (or "copula") desu, and we outline the four basic verb forms in Japanese. Japanese grammar is definitely … well, foreign when it comes to grammar compared to English. But it's easy if you take it in logical steps!

Lesson 1.2) Tea Time [17 min]
The first of our very refreshing lessons, "Tea Time" takes you to the counter to order a piping hot Japanese tea. But not so fast... you'll have to learn a few things about money and asking for what you want or need in Japanese first!

Lesson 1.3) At the Sushi Bar [20 min]
We got hungry by the fourth lesson and decided it was time to indulge in that most popular of Japanese foods: SUSHI! Where would we be without sushi?

Anyway, in addition to raw fish, you'll come away from this lesson with the ability to say what you like and don't like, and you'll be able to use the common "Shall we" phrase to suggest an invitation to go do something, like: Shall we go and eat sushi tonight? (Konya o sushi tabe ni iki mashō ka).

Lesson 1.4) Survival Phrases [30 min]
Everybody needs survival phrases when they learn a new language, and we'll come to your rescue in this lesson with a few ways to manage a conversation that is going too fast, or might just be a little too advanced for you in the early days.

Not only that, we'll leave you with a handy compliment that you can use to pay the utmost respect to your Japanese host, and get a smile out of them at the same time. This lesson is also your first encounter with the common way to express continuing action in Japanese (kind of like our verbs ending in -ing in English).

PART 2: Travel

Lesson 2.1) Getting Around Kyoto [24 min]
In this lesson, we welcome you to your first experience with public transportation in Japan! But not to fear, you've got an excellent guide in Sayaka Matsuura, and she will show you how to get to Kyoto train station with all your limbs - and all your sanity - fully intact!

You'll also find out how to say "excuse me" in Japanese, learn words for "this" and "that," and discover those strange but fundamental little words in Japanese grammar we call "particles." 

Track 2.2) The Perfect Tourist [23 min]
In this lesson we get to relax in the role of tourist. Kenny gets a brochure from the tourist information desk and finds out that he can take photos wherever he likes. Even better, he figures out how to ask where a bathroom is before it's too late!

In the process, you find out how to offer things and how to ask permission and stay on the right side of Japanese cultural etiquette as you go.

Lesson 2.3) In for the Night [21 min]
Getting tired of all this Japanese stuff? How about a rest? In this lesson, you learn how book the room of your choice. And you find out about words and phrases for all sorts of accommodation options in Japan, from the magnificently traditional to the unremarkably Western!

Lesson 2.4) Catching a Ride [26 min]
This lesson marks a chance meeting between the naive Western tourist (played by Kenny) and a stunning Japanese fashion designer from Tokyo (played by Sayaka). You'll get a first-hand exchange that not only succeeds in breaking the ice, but also a shared taxi fare to the city!

In this audio lesson, you also get a gentle introduction to the three character sets that make up written Japanese: kanji, hiragana, and katakana.

Lesson 2.5) Visiting History [26 min]
Another great lesson for prospective tourists, in "Visiting History" we plan out a trip to an amazing temple in the historic section of the city of Nara. The temple is "big" and "famous," so we'll need to learn how to say these words along with a host of other adjectives that we'll pick up alongside our dialogue for the day.

PART 3: Nightlife

Lesson 3.1) Above it All (at Mt. Fuji) [27 min]
This is the first lesson in the third part of the Interactive Audio Course devoted to Japanese Nightlife. It is also one of our favorite lessons, because before we hit the town we take an impromptu trip up one of the most recognizable mountains in the world - Mt. Fuji!

Lesson 3.2) A Taste for Sake [31 min]
This lesson marks the beginning of the end for our night time revelry. We have a quick debate about sake of the hot or cold variety, then proceed to test our preferences with several rounds of the stuff. Even if you've never tried Japanese rice wine, you'll emerge from this lesson with a mouthful of Japanese words to suit any drinking occasion.

Lesson 3.3) At the Night Club [24 min]
After fueling our desire to do some dancing at the sake bar, we head out to the nightclub, where Kenny proceeds to embarrass the life out of Sayaka by doing his rendition of an outdated 80's dance number.

You'll gather some indispensable vocabulary from this lesson, including the verb for "to dance," the word for "free," and the word for "really" (hontō) as in, "Are you REALLY going to dance the Macarena??"

Lesson 3.4) Moonlit Gardens [33 min]
Easily the most romantic of the Rocket Japanese Premium audio lessons, "Moonlit Gardens" takes Kenny and Sayaka on a stroll through a traditional Japanese garden, and you get to learn all the essential words for directions in the process. You also learn important verbs including "to know" and "to seem" during their starry-eyed journey.

Lesson 3.5) It Ends with Karaoke [26 min]
Despite Sayaka's total exhaustion from the day's events, Kenny and his liquid courage convince Sayaka to join him for a round of ... what else? Karaoke!!! Don't miss this lesson, which is chock full of pronunciation practice and fun!

PART 4: Arts and Culture

Lesson 4.1) To the Pharmacy [29 min]
This lesson is the first in Part 4 of the course dedicated to arts and culture in Japan. Before we get cultural, however, Kenny and Sayaka discuss the prospect of taking a trip to the pharmacy for a sore stomach and head. Go figure!

You'll learn the words for "this," "that," "these," and "those," and find out how to say that your head, stomach, or any part of your body is not quite right.

Lesson 4.2) What are You Reading? [30 min]
Manga comics are one of the great staples of Japanese popular literature, and that's why we included a whole lesson on the topic. You'll enjoy this lesson - not only do you find out how to hold another conversation in Japanese, you'll find out how to crack a few jokes as well!

Lesson 4.3) Sporting Conversation (1st Half) [20 min]
Talking about sports is a great way to make friends in a different country, and soccer is always a hot topic in Japan. This lesson is in two "halves": in the first half you find out about Sayaka's very own soccer playing experience.

Lesson 4.4) Sporting Conversation (2nd Half) [21 min]
In the second half of our sporting conversation, you find out who Sayaka's favorite player is (and the real reason she's so fond of him! Both halves of this dialogue are action-packed with common words and phrases that you can use during your day out at the game!

Lesson 4.5) Kabuki Time [30 min] 
This final lesson in the arts and culture section is an exploration of traditional Japanese theater - kabuki. You'll find out how to say all sorts of expressions for things that you wear - that is, after we can get Kenny off the couch and out of the house.

PART 5: Family and Friends

Lesson 5.1) At the Dinner Table [25 min]  
Does the prospect of having dinner at the house of a Japanese host make you a little nervous? Fear not. In this first lesson of Part 5 on "family and friends," you'll learn everything you need to know about exactly what to say before, during, and after a meal when you're the guest at a Japanese house.

Lesson 5.2) Relationship Advice [29 min] 
In this lesson, Sayaka shows Kenny that he can lean on her, when he needs a hand - with some relationship advice in particular. Meanwhile, you learn how to ask someone for a favor in Japanese, and also some key vocabulary words when it comes to men and women.

Lesson 5.3) Homesick [26 min]
In this lesson poor Kenny is struck with an acute bout of homesickness but you emerge with the addition of "giving and receiving" verbs to your Japanese-speaking ability, along with some simple words that you can use to lighten the mood at just the right time!

Lesson 5.4) At the Post Office [27 min]
After this lesson, you'll be able to go to any post office in Japan with absolute confidence and the power to actually post something! You also get a quick culture class on bonsai trees. What's the connection between the post office and bonsai trees? Listen to this lesson and you'll find out.

PART 6: Business Japanese

Lesson 6.1) Ultra-Formal Introductions [22 min]
Part 6 of the Rocket Japanese Interactive Audio Course is designed to be a self-contained series of lessons on how to communicate in a Japanese business environment. But even if you're not traveling to Japan on business, you'll still find these lessons incredibly useful as an introduction to the most formal level of Japanese address, or keigo.

The purpose of these few lessons is to teach you ultra-formal Japanese conversations. But that doesn't mean that the lessons themselves are ultra-serious! In fact, we have staged a series of business exchanges between a chief executive of Ford Motor Company (played by Kenny) and a chief executive of Toyota (played by Sayaka)!  So… please accept our formal invitation to learn formal Japanese (Dōzo, yoroshiku onegai itashi masu).

Lesson 6.2) Gift Giving [30 min]
In this lesson you'll see first hand how to properly give and receive gifts in Japanese culture and exactly what to say during the exchange - even when that involves giving an American truck to the CEO of a Japanese car company!

Lesson 6.3) Company Call [33 min]
In this lesson, we simulate a full phone conversation in which Mr. Kenny Squire of Ford is trying to set up a very important meeting with Ms. Sayaka Matsuura of Toyota - I wonder what it could possibly be about...

Lesson 6.4) Confirming the Meeting [28 min]
In this lesson, the meeting is confirmed, and super formal compliments fly from all angles. After this lesson, you'll definitely be ready to get down to business!

Lesson 6.5) Farewell (Kanpai)! [27 min]
Despite this being the sad goodbye lesson from Rocket Japanese Premium, this track is without a doubt the most special in the course. Not only do you learn the perfect way to bid farewell in Japanese, you also get a wonderful surprise that we can tell you involves a classic Japanese song, someone named Sayaka, and a six-string guitar…

Track 30) All Conversations Track [18 min]
We've assembled all of the conversations in the Rocket Japanese Premium Interactive Audio Course into one lesson, so you can sit back, relax, and immerse yourself in spoken Japanese. Talk about making things easy...

Track 31) Rocket Review Track [25 min]  
As we're fond of saying here at Rocket Languages, you often have to go back to go forward. So whenever you're ready to go back to review the words and phrases you learned in each of the audio lessons, we've compiled all of the Rocket Review into one tidy track! Enjoy it!!

Here's an example of a more advanced conversation:

Kenny:  Is it fun to climb [go] up by car?
Sayaka:  Easier than walking that’s for sure!

...I have to admit that with so much on offer on the internet I was skeptical at first. I tend to like learning something formally and so I though the style offered... would not suit me. I was so wrong! The lessons are so informal and relaxed that it is easy to pick up one or two words quickly and within a few weeks you realise that you are starting to understand the structure of the sentence......

The language games are cool too! I now can quickly get the general understanding of what people are saying... I really didn't think that it would happen so quickly.

...it offers so many ways to learn and it has a great online support. I am very happy that I went with the online option, because I could pick it up and put it down in my own time and not feel as though I was falling behind. Once, years ago, I joined a group [to learn a second language]... but felt as though I was the worst and slowest so I missed a session; well that was it then. I never went back and kissed goodbye to about $150. The experience stopped me from believing that I could learn another language. ...I now have another few hundred million people on the planet that I feel confident to converse with and that is an amazing gift. Expect to learn quickly and without the stress of failure...

Wait! There's More...
Increase Your Knowledge with the MegaJapanese Learning Games...

MegaJapanese comes as part of the Rocket Japanese Premium package and you can use these fun games to make learning Japanese an enjoyable and entertaining experience! Energize your learning with MegaJapanese!

MegaJapanese consists of three different games... MegaVocab, MegaAudio, and MegaHiragana, which motivate your Japanese learning in different ways...

Learning Game 1... Learn Loads of Japanese Words with MegaVocab, the Word-Building Learning Game!

Leave the schoolbooks behind and increase the number of Japanese words you know with this easy-to-use word recall game! MegaVocab has over 1000 words and over 20 topics...

MegaVocab features the MegaVocab Creator, which lets you add your own extra words and pictures. You can add 100's of words and pictures with ease...

... check out this screen shot of the MegaVocab game...

 

Here's how it works:
You start off by selecting what you want to be tested on. You can practice vocabulary from any of the 20 specialized topics, which include “Directions,” “Food and Drink,” “Traveling,” and more. When you have selected what you want to be tested on, press 'Start' and you will be shown a picture and the English word. Just select the corresponding Japanese word from the 4 options given. If you get it right first time, then you get the maximum points. You can continue guessing, with one less point for every incorrect answer, until you get the right answer.

With a database of over 1000 words you will be recognizing and memorizing words and phrases like wildfire! What's more … you can add 100's of your OWN words and pictures, including any specialized vocabulary list that you need to know!

Learning Game 2... Recognize The Sound of Tons of Japanese Words with MegaAudio...

One of the hardest things about learning a language is being able to understand the spoken word. It's all well and good getting the theory sorted out but if you can't understand what a Japanese person is saying then what good is it to you?

With the Rocket Japanese Premium MegaAudio game you can learn to recognize over 1000 words in a short period of time. Before long you will be listening to your DVD's in Japanese and understanding the entire dialogue...

Here is a screen shot of the MegaAudio game...

 


Here's how it works:

Like the MegaVocab game, you select the topics that you wish to be tested on. When you have selected your topics, press 'Start' and you will be shown 6 different pictures with the English word for the picture underneath. The audio track will play the Japanese equivalent and you have to select the correct picture. You get 6 points for a correct answer and lose one point for every incorrect answer.

MegaAudio is the perfect answer to the problem of being able to understand the spoken word! Kick-start your Japanese in a practical and useful way today!

Learning Game 3... Get Ahead of the Game with Your Japanese Writing with MegaHiragana...

MegaHiragana has been specifically designed for students who are committed to getting on top of written Japanese.

MegaHiragana gives you a fantastic introduction to the world of Japanese writing. Hiragana is one vital component of the Japanese writing system, which is made up of three types of characters: hiragana, katakana and kanji. Hiragana allows us to represent the sounds of the Japanese language and build words from them!

Here's how it works:
Just select “GO!” to get started. You will be shown a hiragana character and 4 multiple-choice options for the corresponding sound (written in rōmaji). When you click the correct answer the audio for that character will be played.

 

By the time you complete the Rocket Japanese Premium Interactive Audio Course, MegaVocab, and MegaAudio... MegaHiragana will be the icing on the cake...

Once you have registered you have 24/7 access to all the interactive audio and written sections, these are also available for download which is great as you can pop them on to a MP3 player and learn on the move. With 2 children it is not always easy to find the time to learn... You can simply play the last audio course to refresh your memory and off you go again. It has helped us a great deal already in from ordering in Restaurants, directions to local amenities and general chit chat...

Storyline: As was his wont, and troubled sore at heart, Groaning gazed sadly on the barren sea. Calypso questioned Hermes, seating him Upon a sumptuous chair : " Why comest thou Hermes with golden wand, my worshipful And friendly guest ? Thou hast not hitherto This isle frequented ! Say what fills thy mind ! Thy wishes I would gladly bring to pass. But come and let me first before thee place The stranger's due." So saying she set out A table, and ambrosia laid thereon. And mixed red nectar. And then ate and drank The guide and Argus-slayer. And what time His meal was ended and his heart made glad With fair Calypso's cheer, her answering. He said : " A goddess, thou hast questioned me, A god, about my coming ; wherefore I Will tell thee truly, since thou biddest me. 'Twas Zeus who ordered me to come to thee, Though all reluctant, for who willingly
