Hello,

So I know a bit of japanese but I need to go through the beginner lessons to get some of the words down and also some grammar. However I find it difficult to memorize based on the audio lessons because there is 15 minutes for 5 words. the NEwbie lessons has the review and dialogue audio which help a lot but the begginer does not. Does anyone have any suggestions for me.

I know about the lessons notes but I would rather have the audio on my ipod so I can listen in my car and while traveling.

Hello thedastardlyoneさん、

Sorry, I am a little confused! Are you trying to choose between the Newbie and Beginner series? By the way, only Season 1 of the Beginner series does not have the review/dialogue tracks, but Seasons 2, 3, and 4 do (you just need to be a premium member to access them). :)

I've found that I've been learning a lot faster when listening to both the newbie and the beginner series. Weird, but it seems like if one doesn't have the needed grammar point the other one will.

Well, I really need to make sure my vocabulary is up to speed before I go onto the intermediate lessons. And I will probably need to go over the last lessons of the beginner series as well. So I need to make sure I know the vocab from the begginner lessons but it can be difficult going over the begginner lessons from season one.
