The Keys to Successful Language Learning
1. You are having fun.
Research shows that when something is fun--you're playing, interacting, laughing--you're more likely to remember it because your brain is engaged. This is why we based our entire language-learning program around game-playing. Plus, when you know something is fun, it will keep you coming back again and again.
2. You are not overwhelmed.
We know the thought of learning a new language is overwhelming. This is why every one of our games can be completed in 10 minutes or less. Imagine your language-learning goal is a sandwich. You wouldn't cram it all in your mouth at once, would you? No. Sure, you'll finish it all, but one bite at a time.
3. You can fit it into your life.
We know you have a million things to do, and we recognize language learning is probably not the first thing on your to-do list (no matter how much we wish it was). This is why we give you a ton of different ways to learn, from computer games and audio lessons for your iPod to written activities in the workbook and interactive fun on your TV!

WHY LEARN JAPANESE?
- Japan’s economy is the third largest in the world.
- Tokyo is often names as one of the best cities to visit worldwide.
- Knowing basic Japanese words and phrases before traveling to Japan will help you feel more at ease during your trip.
Japan has some of the most beautiful landscapes in the world and draws more than 8 million foreign visitors every year. A complete visit to Japan is sure to include shopping in Tokyo’s Ginza neighborhood or sightseeing in the Shinjuku skyscraper district. Outside of Tokyo, popular Japanese destinations include Kyoto, often called one of Japan’s most beautiful places, and Osaka, which is home to one of Japan’s most famous attractions, the Osaka Castle. Nearby, is spectacular Himeji Castle, one of 14 of Japan’s World Heritage sites. One of the most spectacular times to be in Japan is during the spring when millions of cherry blossom trees are in full bloom all over the country.
Visitors to Japan will also want to take part in some Japanese traditions, including a riding in a rickshaw, enjoying the onsen (Japanese hot springs), or visiting a Japanese tea house. Japanese cuisine includes dishes with fish, meat, vegetables, tofu and, of course, rice and/or noodles. There are many Japanese traditions that center around dining and travelers should be respectful of those. You will want to ask for help if you are unsure what to do.
A majority of Japanese-speaking people live in Japan, but Japanese is also the official language of the Republic of Palau, one of the world’s youngest and smallest states (and where the taping of the tenth season of the American reality television show, Survivor, was located!). Learning the Japanese language is useful in today’s global economy. After 2011’s devastating earthquake and tsunami in Japan, there has been an increased need for and desire among non-natives to learn the Japanese language.
Here are some of the basic Japanese phrases that you will use often:
- Ikura desu ka? (How much does it cost?)
- Benjo wa doko desu ka? (Where is the bathroom?)
- Yoi ichinichi o! (Have a nice day!)
