Publisher Comments:

At last, a language book that is really designed to appeal to the beginning student. With the overwhelming rise in the popularity of Japnese manga and animation, there is a growing interest in enjoying these comics in their original language as well as understanding more about Japan's popular culture. Japnese in MangaLand is the first book to translate this interest into a learning system designed specifically to teach beginning students basic conversational Japnese. With Japnese in MangaLand, readers can easily master the basics of the Japnese language using manga as a didactic tool. With thirty lessons, including drills, clear explanations, and vivid examples, readers will become familiar with the fundamental patterns of Japnese grammar while learning important vocabulary. This book also features a bonus glossary of more than 160 basic kanji to assist in the learning process. Japnese in MangaLand is a wonderful alternative to reading page after page of dry prose. Perfect for beginners and manga enthusiasts, this book makes learning the basics of Japnese both fun and easy.

Besides that, learning with manga is more fun than simply reading page after page of dry prose. The 30 lessons that make up the book include drills, and a small glossary of 160 basic "kanji" is appended as an added bonus.
