Sugoku suki! Mata aeru?-(I'm crazy about you! Shall we meet again?) Answer this correctly in Japanese, and you may be going on a hot date. Incorrectly, and you could be hurting someone's feelings or getting a slap! Japanese classes and textbooks tend to spend a lot of time rehearsing for the same fictitious scenarios, but chances are while in Japan you will spend a lot more time trying to make new friends or start new romances-something you may not be prepared for.
If you are a student, businessman or tourist traveling to Japan and would like to have an authentic and meaningful experience, the key is being able to speak like a local. This friendly and easy-to-use Japanese phrasebook makes this possible. Making Out in Japanese has been updated and expanded to be even more helpful as a guide to modern colloquial Japanese for use in everyday informal interactions-giving access to the sort of catchy Japanese expressions that aren't covered in traditional language materials. As well as the Romanized forms (romanji), each expression is now given in authentic Japanese script (kanji and kana with furigana pronunciation clues), so that in the case of difficulties the book can be shown to a native Japanese-speaker.

A guide to male and female usage. Romanized forms of words and phrases (romanji). Complete Japanese translations including Japanese characters (kanji) and the Japanese alphabet (kana).

"This book is great if you'll be conversing with young Japanese people or already have Japanese friends to speak with. I also love the easy to read layout and fun tone of the book. It's definitely a must if you'll be using Japanese primarily in casual social situations. I'd have to say the size is also an advantage, as it would fit into a bag without weighing you down." -Lindsay Does Languages blog
"One of the things that I most like about the books is that they include the English translations of the phrases as well as the sentences and words in the writing system of the language alongside the transliteration. This is great both for those who are interested in a more conversational approach and for those interested in more in-depth learning." -Eurolinguiste
