An introduction to the Japanese language through common, everyday sentences.

This bestselling Japanese textbook is a user-friendly guide for beginners designed for use either in a classroom or self-study. It adopts a very different approach from other Japanese books-teaching you the underlying sentence structures and patterns of Japanese along with essential vocabulary and phrases so you can attain basic fluency quickly. The emphasis is on acquiring a working knowledge of simple, often-used Japanese sentences.

This new edition has been thoroughly updated and expanded to reflect the way the language is actually spoken in Japan today. Manga drawings have been added to each dialogue to help with recall. Along with the latest jargon for the internet, social media, cellphones and IT, a bidirectional dictionary is included at the back.

Each self-contained lesson presents a simple four-step method:

Step 1: Basic Sentences: Each lesson begins with a few simple sentences. Essential Japanese vocabulary and phrases are learned within the context of these sentences. Audio recordings by native speakers are included in the free CD and are also available for download from Tuttle Publishing's website.

Step 2: Communication Notes: A detailed discussion of each sentence follows to assist you in understanding the underlying structure and how to form new sentences based on the same pattern.

Step 3: Everyday Conversations: Authentic dialogues with manga illustrations and native-speaker recordings show you how people communicate naturally in Japan today through simple, everyday interactions.

Step 4: Exercises: Several sets of easy exercises help reinforce your understanding of the key points presented in the lesson and review what you have learned so you can move on to the next one.

All disc content is alternatively accessible on tuttlepublishing.com/downloadable-content.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Verbs are usually the key to understanding a sentence or part of a text, so it's well worth emphasising them ... If you know these 600 verbs that's really going to help unlock a lot of Japanese for you.'" -How to Japan blog
"This book excels at differentiating really similar concepts, even adding more to the never-ending question of 'What is the difference between [this character] and [this character]?' The vocabulary words are also thematically arranged, usually with illustrations for some words for better memory reinforcement. Pronunciation in the CD tracks actually sounds natural compared to other learning materials" -Japan Reference blog
