Your sensei-in-a-box.
Human Japanese is based on the idea that the best way to learn and truly comprehend Japanese is to have it explained to you by someone who speaks your language. Core concepts are broken down in a friendly, down-to-earth tone, with frequent comparisons to similar aspects of English.

Let it all sink in.
Be sure you've got your vocab nailed with built-in quizzes at the end of each chapter.
Fun and effective.
Keep it light with quizzes that help ensure you retain what you learn. In this twist on the classic memory game, match a hiragana character to its equivalent in Roman characters.
