The Oxford Beginner's Japanese Dictionary is a brand new guide to learning Japanese. Designed specifically for English-speaking adult learners who are either learning from scratch or refreshing lost language skills, it offers an easy to use dictionary, extra help with vocabulary, and essentialinformation on living and interacting in the Japanese-speaking world. The dictionary is exceptionally easy to use, because it moves away from the traditional dictionary layout. All main translations are preceded by an equals sign so that they are instantly identifiable, and all parts of the entry are spelt out in full, avoiding confusing jargon and abbreviations.Grammar and usage notes throughout the text warn of possible translation pitfalls, and thousands of example phrases show how the language is used in context. The 30-page Learning and Lifestyle kit gives key information on both the Japanese language, with a list of the words you really need to know, grammar help, and verb tables, and on life in the Japanese-speaking world: background information on lifestyle and culture, tips on etiquette and interactionin the language, and a phrasefinder for use when travelling. The Oxford Beginner's Japanese Dictionary is your essential companion to learning Japanese.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Helpful I bought this book previously used, and it's become helpful to me this year whenever I need to look up terms in English or Japanese. I also have another dictionary, however, it's only Japanese-English rather than both like this one. I often turn to this dictionary whenever I can't find the words I'm looking for in my go to dictionary when I double check the meanings and translations of words. #plumreview
