Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Japanese for Busy People is, as the title suggests, a concise course for "busy" students who want to learn natural, spoken Japanese as effectively as possible in a limited amount of time. Three main texts-Japanese for Busy People I, Japanese for Busy People II, and Japanese for Busy People III-with related workbooks, cassette tapes, CDs, teacher's manuals, and videos make up this fully integrated three-level series. At each level, enough vocabulary and grammar have been provided to enable the learner to communicate in uncomplicated adult language without having to memorize excessive amounts of vocabulary and language patterns that are not immediately useful. All components of the Japanese for Busy People series have been prepared under the guidance of a working group of experienced Japanese language instructors who reviewed and tested the material in an authentic classroom environment.

Japanese for Busy People I: The Workbook is the ideal resource for any student wishing to improve oral fluency and speak Japanese at normal conversational speed. This collection of oral drills has been developed to provide practice for sentence patterns presented in both the Revised Edition and Kana Version of Japanese for Busy People I. The Workbook can be used both in the classroom as a supplement for introducing or reviewing lessons, and outside the classroom for homework and review. When coordinated with the exercises and quizzes in the main textbook, it should enable learners to improve their command of basic Japanese in a relatively short time.

This fully illustrated Workbook Includes:

o "Sentence Pattern Drills" for better, quicker, and more natural Japanese sentences.

o "Situation Drills" for more accurate and relevant usage of sentences and expressions.

o "Vocabulary Drills" for speedy and long-lasting vocabulary retention.

Japanese for Busy People I: Workbook Tapes (available separately) has been specially designed to support this workbook.

Synopsis:

Aims to guide readers to a fluent use of the Japanese language. Placing emphasis on language as spoken between educated adults, the integrated approach of the course increases speed of comprehension. This workbook accompanies the first volume text which teaches the basics of communications.
