A friend has asked me if I could recommend any Japanese language learning DVD's. I don't have any - so I can't think of any recommendations - Do any of you have a program to recommend?

>.o Garr I'm going a bit nutty (well nuttier then usual) with this No Food no Water routine. (small sips of water, hard cany OK.. woohoo!) My next Dr. appointment is not til next Thursday.
Hope I don't go insane until then.

Leigh has been doing a super job of taking care of my wound dressing changes & setting up the TPN through IV (TPN is liquid nutrition through IV - It costs about $1000 a bag..... Geez, what would I do without insurance?)

Applause for Leigh on his latest A for Directed study in Aeroelasticity

I haven't seen many of those pictures before. Thanks! :) (That one... the "hair" one... LOL!!! How can he smile with his hair like that? Oh, I am going to be laughing over that one for a good long time!)

Why does your friend want DVDs? I'm asking because while I can't think of any, I'm wondering what level she's at and if it's just because she want's video with what she's learning. In that case, I can think of a couple of possibilities:

JapanesePod101.com is starting a new series for its premium subscribers that has a video element. I have no idea how good it is, but if it's like the rest of their shows, it's probably very good, but fast-paced.

There's a TV series available via Jpopsuki called "At Home Dad". It's a cute show, in Japanese with subtitles, but the reason I'd recommend it is that the husband is learning how to be a stay-at home dad and the wife is restarting her career, so there's lots of the dialogue centers around everyday activities.

Other than that... I *think* there was a short video series uploaded to the Japanese LJ community about a year ago. I downloaded one or two episodes, but found it didn't suit me at the time.

So sorry about the no-food, no-water. YUCK! Not even Italian ice. Can you chew gum?

Best hands down is Rosetta Stone...Expenisive but it will have you thinking in Japanese by the time you finish the first complete chapter.

ooops forgot... it is available at Amazon.com just search Rosetta Stone Japanese. Or you can go the Rosetta stone website and request a demo disk for free to see if you want to buy it.
