Best CDs and Videos for Total Beginners

Post by sdhaku » Fri 08.11.2006 1:23 am

I have a really hectic work schedule but I would like to fit in learning Japanese where ever I can. I'd like to find some really good CDs and/or videos that I could listen to at work or watch while I'm eating lunch/dinner. Any recommendations for a total beginner?

I use Japanese Living Language. It's not an audio course but it helps to listen to the CDs once in a while to revise what you've learnt in the books. The beginner to intermediate package has three CDs.

Oy, I've used two resources thus far. 'The Complete Idiots Guide to Conversational Japanese' <----Really good by the way. Who cares about the dehumanizing title. A website <-------Great audio, with OSAKA DIALECT! can you believe it? And there is unscripted podcasts too. I've learned much in so little time.
