I haven taken both Japanese 101 and 102 at my University and would like some easily layed out audio lessons on beginner material to listen to when doing things like laundry, commuting etc.

Any suggestions? Thanks!

I've found this book really useful: Japanese for All Occasions by Taeko Kamiya

It comes with a CD, but you need to be able to read hiragana to follow the text.

This has come up before, but I always recommend the "Living Language" Japanese box set. It's the version listed as "Japanese Complete Course: Basic-Intermediate, Compact Disc Edition (LL(R) Complete Basic Courses)" on amazon.com - It looks like they released a newer edition, but I can't speak to that one. The Living Language series comes with a book and CDs, and there is no English on the CD, and the book gives you examples sentences and templates, it's a really useful set.
