This book is everything it says it is, and if your someone like me who is terrible when it comes speaking & listening this book is up your alley. Before I got this book I couldn't understand almost everything anyone was saying, but after spending time with this book, I still can't understand everything that I hear but at least I can understand more than what I could've. If you keep Shadowing everyday your skills will get better granted it will be hard at first, but it really works. Your listening comprehension & speaking will gradually get better. Absolutely worth it. Note: you have to know your kana, some basic japanese before using.

I heard about this book on YouTube and have been wanting to try it out for a while. Shadowing seems to be growing more steam in the language learning community. This is the only shadowing book I know of; although there are other Shadowing programs I hear about now like Etoeto for Japanese. This book is another Japanese learning book made for a wide group of foreigners, hence more than English translations for the Japanese in the book. I have an undergraduate degree in Japanese and I've studied abroad in Japan, so I know most of the Japanese in this book, but I want to improve my speaking abilities. This book has about 4 methods of shadowing they suggest you can use while going through this book and the Japanese they use is natural. It really what you'll hear in Japan. You have to listen to the audio over and over repeatedly to get the most out of this program. The translations are not direct translations, but they are good. I plan on buying the second book. I used this program with a relative who speak basically no Japanese and she remembered and spoke more phrases after a few short sessions using this program. I wish I had started out with shadowing when I began learning Japanese.

I found this book very, very helpful! I'm taking Japanese in college right now, and after a year of beginning level courses, this book is a great supplement. Really helps with listening/pronunciation if you stick with it.

Great book for practicing your spoken Japanese. I've noticed some real improvement in my pronunciation and listening comprehension after doing it for a few minutes every day. I just wish that they had this kind of series for other languages as well.
