Learn hiragana and katakana more quickly and easily than ever before Japanese for Busy People: Kana Workbook is a concise course for busy students who want to learn the two kana scripts, hiragana and katakana, as effectively as possible in a limited amount of time. This workbook offers a unique and proven approach to writing accurate and well-formed kana that has been tried and tested in the classrooms of AJALT. The pronunciation and configuration of the kana are taught in tandem, based on a solid foundation of clear-cut commentary, unique writing drills, and an optional audio cassette called Japanese for Busy People: Kana Workbook Tape. Using basic sentence patterns and phrases, the student learns not only how to read, write, and pronounce hiragana and katakana, but also how to incorporate and distinguish Japanese script in the living language.

All sentence patterns and vocabulary have been modeled after Lessons 1 through 10 of the best-selling Japanese for Busy People 1. Used together, these two books accelerate and strengthen the learning process. It is the ideal workbook for anyone using or planning to use the Kana Version of Japanese for Busy People.
