So here are some of words that could help you in understanding what speaker is trying to say.
Interesting fact is you have to spend around 3 months (Without any break) to learn Japanese language. I can understand, you must be surprised to know what this logic is.  But it is not necessary that you stay in class continuously to learn Japanese, if you learn with true mind, then you can learn in 6 months (with breaks).
I will also upload some Japanese language learning lesion in PDF. Those PDF file will not only help you in understanding but will also generate interest about learning world’s most interesting language.  
As each language has its script, so Japanese has its script also, but these are 3 in numbers.
Japanese language uses three scripts: hiragana (ひらがな), katakana (カタカナ) and kanji (漢字).
Here Hiragana & katakana are easy to understand and to write. But kanji is difficult to master. Because Kanji has more than 50,000 characters while Hiragana & Katakana each has only 46 characters, which make these 2 scripts easy to understand and write.
Starting with Numbers:-
