I think anyone planning to visit Japan would be well served spending at least a month with an introductory Japanese text book.

The video was good and all. It helped with some of the common phases that would be said on a day-to-day basis, although the host had a bad habit of constantly looking down at the ground when either beginning or ending his sentences. It was quite distracting. Over all though, it was good.

Great beginner phrases. You might want to get rid of the "n" in arigato"n" in the captions.

After looking at his *habit* of staring on the ground.. I realised it was only done when he was saying either *thank you* or *sorry*, it's probably his style of a mini bow, just to be polite. Alot of useful phrases. I would love to learn the language myself.
