Jun 20, Leelee marked it as on-hold. It’s an okay book for japxnese, but I found some mistakes in the book ie. The explainations aren’t like super detailed or anything; they’re kind of brief and to the point.
Apr ediko, Nicole Applewood is currently reading it Shelves: I think this is one of the most useful textbooks on learning Japanese I have picked up to date. It starts off with pronunciation and the alphabet rather then just plunging you into words and phrases. I definitely recommend it so far for someone trying to learn the language. Demystufied would not recommend this for an absolute beginner. It’s labeled “beginner-intermediate” on the back cover, but says something like “easy enough for a beginner”, but I’m what I would guess to be an advanced beginner – I’ve read Teach Yourself Beginner’s Japanese by Helen Gilhooly, and watched every episode of NHK’s Let’s Learn Japanese – and I struggled a bit.

Yes, there are accompanying CDs – I only had I would not recommend this for an absolute beginner. Yes, there are accompanying CDs – I only had the book, because that’s japanees my library has – but I still think a good Japanese language book should have some practice dialogues with some kind of story so that you better memorize certain things, instead of sample sentences like “Where is the library?
When I needed to look up words to answer a question on a test, I had to make an educated guess as to where in the book it might’ve been mentioned. I had to use an English grammar handbook to look up what auxiliary verbs and copular verbs were, and to get a better understanding of transitive and intransitive.
Maybe even a Japanese-English English-Japanese dictionary. Jul 27, Damien rated it really liked it.
In the three years that I have been studying Japanese, this book has been the most useful to me and the one I often returned to after reading others. Perhaps what makes it so helpful are the practices and quizzes the book offers. If any one- whose first and primary language was English- asked me for recommendation, it would be this book, along with Pimsleur’s Japanese series Nov 28, Teresa rated it really liked it. As far as what is offered in the US, this is a really good book to learn Japanese.
Of course those who are serious about learning Japanese will need better study material. I highly recommend whiterabbitpress.
