Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In the 22 years since its publication, Japanese for Busy People has won acclaim worldwide as an effective, easy-to-understand textbook, either for classroom use or for independent study. Now, more than a decade after its first revision, the series is being redesigned, updated and consolidated to meet the needs of todays students and businesspeople who want to learn natural, spoken Japanese as effectively as possible in a limited amount of time.

The Kana Workbook teaches the reading and writing of the two most basic Japanese scripts, hiragana and katakana. These scripts are used all the time in written Japanese, and a mastery of them is essential for those who wish to study the language at any level above survival. As such, the book serves as a prerequisite to both Japanese for Busy People I: Kana Version and Japanese for Busy People II, and it is also recommended as review for those who have learned kana before but have forgotten some of the basics.

This completely revised workbook features:


· Lots of practice in recognition, reading, and writing;


· Fun, picture-dictionary-like illustrations that help students build their vocabularies;


· A free CD that gives learners a taste of the actual sounds of Japanese;


· A bonus section introducing basic kanji.
