How to pronounce numbers in Japanese

As hard as you try, without helpful feedback your Japanese pronunciation is never going to be the same as a native speaker’s. If you've found it difficult to perfect the way you say Japanese words and phrases, this lesson will help you.


Using the blue Rocket Record buttons you can record the way you say each number, and compare it with the way a Japanese native speaker does. That’s right, with Rocket Japanese voice mapping technology you can record your voice as many times as you need until your pronunciation matches the Japanese speaker!

Overall, a great product. I was able to learn Japanese petty fast with Rocket Japanese. Great interactive audio lessons. They are very helpful when trying to memorize the lesson and understand the meanings. Culture lessons have great content. However, I am a slow reader, I wish the culture lessons had interactive audio lesson along with them as well.

Great so far. It treats you more like an adult than Rosetta Stone. I never liked the one-sided approach in Rosetta Stone that I had to guess at what they were trying to teach you from 4 pictures rather than just telling you some basic concepts as well as some of the culture. It looks like I will get that with Rocket Languages but didn't with Rosetta Stone. So, Rocket Languages treats you like an adult. Reasonably priced.

Today was my first day using Rocket Languages (Japanese Premium) and I can honestly say that in the first audio lesson I learned 90% of the material that was covered in the first hour. I can not say that for my three years spent in French class in high school. This first hour was incredible and really motivates me to want to come back tomorrow and use it again. Especially the way you can grade yourself so you know what to work on for later. Rocket Languages is a sound investment for anyone who wishes to learn another language.

The audio tracks are pretty decent. I take on the road with me all the time. When I get the chance to sit in front of my computer, I log on and find the course material pretty easy to finish. I personally like the culture sections. Even with all the things I look up about my country I'm studying, they seem to be about something new to me. I have been studying Japanese for five years now and I see myself on Rocket Languages for a few more years.

Rocket Japanese is exactly what I have been looking for! I studied Japanese for one year in middle school but have always had an itch to continue learning this fun language without paying a high price for it. I feel right at home with Rocket Japanese and is a great way to pick up where I left off many years ago.
