Don't complain to me that people kick you when you're down. It's your own fault for lying there

We recommend using this CD in conjunction with a separate language course.

Kid surgeons really know quite a lot about hypnosis, don't they? :P

I've seen "Subliminal Japanese", which I suppose is a similar idea. I listened to a few tracks, but I didn't really find it that effective. :P

Did you listen to the sample mp3 by the way?

Not sure how the sound of thunderstorms is supposed to hypnotize you, but whatever works I guess!

You've obviously never heard of the cd series called sounds of nature.

many people utilize thunderstorms, rainstorms, and other sounds to relax to. I used to play them at night before I was married to remind me of the sounds of japan. I personally think thunderstorms and rainstorms are very soothing to listen to.

Japanese is considered to be one of the most difficult languages to learn by the CIA.This is accepted because of the numerous characters, an amazing four alphabets and really difficult verb conjugations;So you are really interested to learn Japanese as soon as you get over with “romanji” and begin with “kana” and “kanji” you must get hold of a good dictionary. The best is one kept up by Jim Breen. To download this dictionary just type in “Jim Breen WWWJDIC” in the search box of Google. Online learning is the best way to learn Japanese.

It's true that hypnosis can be induced from listening to music (or whatever sound it is). I don't think it's really necessary to pay money for something that can do that; there are tools you can use to do it yourself. And, as you probably expected, it's not been proven to help with language learning. But it's not 100% BS.

I was referring to the fact that the name of the item is using hypnosis for "Learning Japanese" when the program doesn't have a darn thing to do with Japanese at all. It's a gimmick and a scam. Or a joke. The viability of hypnosis is completely unrelated.
