Let's Learn Japanese is a TV course for those who wish to learn the fundamentals of the Japanese language. The first season is 26 30-minute long episodes based on material from the series Yan and the Japanese People. In addition to the skits about Yan, the lessons include shorter 'mini-skits' which show how the expressions being studied are used in a variety of situations, helping to make their meaning more clear. 1985.
