Review Summary: Japanese Pod 101 is useful for beginners to develop basic vocabulary and conversation skills. Premium accounts offer a wide range of features that make learning Japanese engaging and highly effective. It is also suitable for intermediate learners due to the large amount of material available, although advanced learners may find the lessons somewhat basic for their needs.

Japanese Pod 101 is geared slightly more for beginners, but offers lots of intermediate and advanced content as your skills improve. They also constantly update the program with new materials and features.

With Premium and Premium+ plans you get access to all features such as custom word lists, spaced repetition flashcards, interactive quizzes, an updated mobile app, and much more.

My personal favorite feature is the spaced-repetition flashcards. I used the Vietnamese course to add hundreds of words to my vocab in a matter of weeks and look forward to getting started with either Hungarian or Portuguese next. (They offer 30 different languages.)

You can also sign up for free to try it out, but the features are quite limited with a free account.

In short, JapanesePod101.com is a great way to start learning Japanese.

It’s also much cheaper – and probably more effective 🙂 – than other expensive programs such as Rosetta Stone.

In my opinion it’s definitely a worthwhile investment (both time and money-wise) if you’re looking to grow your language skills.

They also offer a 60-day, no questions asked, 100% money back guarantee if you are unhappy with the product for whatever reason.

Happy Japanese learning!
