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, will automatically attempt to play or stream zip files, without success.
If you are using an iPhone or an iPad, there is a free app that will allow you to save these files to your device. It’s called My Media Download Manager, and it’s available in iTunes. After you install it, you will be able to use it as a browser, instead of using Safari.
After installing My Media Download Manager, open the app and navigate back to this site. When you are ready to download a file, touch one of the Download buttons on this page for a longer time than usual (about 2 seconds). You will be prompted to give the file a name and to save it.
After the file has downloaded, select “Other Files” at the bottom of the screen. Find the zip file you just downloaded, touch Open, and then touch Unzip. After the file has unzipped, select it and choose “Move to Media.” Next select Media and touch the mp3 file to start playing it.
