The thrill is that you're actually figuring it out on your own. You're engaging with another language, not just parroting it... It's an excellent way to start, and leaves the listener thinking, Hey, Ich kann do dis. - New Yorker, David Sedaris, humorist and author, on learning with the Michel Thomas Method
Looking for a beginner language course that fits into your busy lifestyle and gets you speaking a new language in a matter of weeks, not years? Michel Thomas's unique method is designed to overcome the frustrations usually faced by language learners so you can...
* Pick up Japanese naturally and unforgettably without strain or stress
* Learn from listening and speaking, without the pressure of writing or memorizing
* Build up your Japanese in manageable steps by thinking out answers for yourself
For 50 years, Michel Thomas worked on decoding languages into their most essential component parts. These 'building blocks' are introduced sequentially so that you reconstruct the language for yourself - to form your own sentences, to say what you want, when you want. Within the very first hour you will be able to generate complete sentences instinctively, having absorbed the language and grammatical structures.
You will learn at your own pace, pausing and responding where necessary, and complete the 8-hour course in about 20-30 hours. By the end of the Foundation course, you will understand and have the confidence to speak basic Japanese. You can continue to review and practice with the additional 2-hour Review course.
WHAT IS NEXT?
After Foundation, we recommend doing the Intermediate course. Generally, this is the recommended order for the Michel Thomas Method language courses:
