A good way to build up sentences and vocab.

What made the experience of listening to Learn in Your Car: Japanese, the Complete Language Course the most enjoyable?

In a nutshell it's this. American man says a phrase, Japanese woman repeats it. That's all! At first it starts off a bit basic, a ticket please etc, a hotel room please etc but soon all the information builds. It's over there, it's under there etc etc. The further you get the more you can put it all together and you can also start supplementing their words for other vocab words. That's what I like about it. E.g. the book is under the table, well change book to whatever and suddenly you're making more sentences.It's probably not for complete beginners although it would still help I think. I've found this course very useful for building up vocab and sentences. I put each chapters details into Anki (copy them from the PDF) and then I listen on repeat to each chapter's audio. Once I can remember the chapter quite well I move on the next chapter. So for example if the sentence says: the train from Tokyo (Tokyo kara no densha) I put it into Anki, I change train to bus, car, airplane etc and I also put those sentences into Anki. It's a massive 9 hour file but you can play chapters on your phone via the app or in iTunes. It is a copyrighted file though. Other things to note is that it's relatively polite Japanese so when possible I also try to include the casual version of the sentence in Anki as well. I signed up on the month's trial so I got this course for free :)


What was one of the most memorable moments of Learn in Your Car: Japanese, the Complete Language Course?

Fantastic audiobook!

It's an excellent way to familiarise and review a huge range of vocabulary and grammar points. Unlike Pimsleur audiobooks, it comes with a very useful pdf for follow-up study. I highly recommend it to help your progress in Japanese :)
