If you want to learn to speak Japanese, check out the 27 Japanese lessons that are available to download on this page. In addition, you may download a complete transcript of all the lessons, as well as several Japanese grammar guides. All of this material is free.
I continue to listen to these lessons and frequently revise the audio files, the transcript and the other documents, in an effort to make them more accurate and easier to use. Therefore, I suggest that you pay attention to the dates on which the files have been updated. These dates can be seen when you click on the Details tabs below and also in the list at the bottom of this page. In addition, dates are embedded in the individual file names.
By the way, please consider recommending this page on Google by clicking on the button below:
Free Document Downloads: .doc & .pdf formats
Free Japanese Lesson Downloads: .mp3 format
Notice: these are mp3 files that have been converted to zip files. You will need to download them, save them to your device and unzip them before playing them.
Please be aware that some devices, including iPhones and iPads, may automatically attempt to play or stream zip files, without success.
If you are using an iPhone, iPad or iPod, it’s best to start by downloading these files to the computer where you have installed iTunes. Each download may take several minutes or sometimes much longer. Then unzip each file and save it in a folder on your computer. Create a playlist in iTunes and name it, for example, “Japanese Audio Flashcard Lessons.” Drag the audio files from their folder to this new playlist. Finally, connect your portable device and synchronize it with iTunes.
If you have a slow internet connection, you may have trouble downloading these audio files, some of which are as large as 76 megabytes. People with slow internet connections have told me that their downloads seem to “time out” when downloading such large files. In that case, you may try downloading the audio files as FTP files, using an FTP downloader like Filezilla (for Windows computers) or Cyberduck (for Mac computers).
If you want to use Filezilla, for example, start by watching this video. Once you are in Filezilla, you will need the following information: FTP HOST: ftp.japaneseaudiolessons.com FTP USER: firstname.lastname@example.org FTP PASSWORD: japanese You should now be able to see the audio files listed on the right side of the screen. You may right-click on an individual file to download it.
