This handy Japanese phrasebook and pocket dictionary is designed for people who want to learn Japanese quickly and don't have a lot of time to study.It is designed by an experienced language teacher to be useful and easy to use. Even if you have just a few minutes a day-while sitting on a train or subway, waiting for a bus, or spending time with your friends-you can open the book and learn a few useful phrases that you'll use over and over again during your stay in Japan.This thoroughly revised edition features hundreds of new phrases and manga illustrations which give context to the vocabulary and expressions. It is divided into twenty-two accessible chapters, each one covering a specific topic or situation that you will encounter while traveling in Japan. Each chapter contains three sections: - Key Words & Expressions: This introduces all the key Japanese vocabulary and phrases you'll need to communicate in Japan. A recording of each phrase or word by a native speaker is given on the CD, and example sentences are provided showing how each word and expression is used. - Expressions in Context: This section shows you how to make use of the words and phrases in various situations. Mini Dialogues illustrate their use followed by related expressions designed to give you confidence in using the new words in slightly different ways. - Additional Vocabulary: This section enables you to create new sentences based on the patterns learned and increases your vocabulary and range of things you can say. There's no need to memorize every word or phrase; just learn the ones that you want to use.This book has over 1,800 carefully selected words and expressions. The new manga illustrations bring the dialogues to life and show how the phrases are used in actual real-life situations. There is very little grammar and no need to spend hours of rote memorization. All you need is a few minutes a day and a willingness to learn!
