i find the bonus tracks of the newbie series very helpful, in particular where an english word is spoken and then after a short pause, the japanese translation is spoken..
not sure of this has been suggested before but how abt a bonus track where
while in the main audio track we normally can hear the lesson scene 3 times, once normal, once slow and then once with a translation,
the third translation can be flipped so we can hear the english first, and then after a short pause the japanese at normal speed...
the style u series are great, thanks naomi sensei, pete sensei and rebecca sensei and others involved
