Japanese for Busy People : The Video Guide Jun 19, 2000
The Japanese for Busy People books are an excellent tuition series. This is a pair of videos that cover some of the lessons in the JBP volume 1 book. It makes an attempt at humour and explains key points carefully.
However, it is rather disappointing. The presentation of the video is very amateurish and its tone is patronising. In general, it is reminiscent of a slightly excruciating work training video and it really isn't long enough to achieve very much. It isn't as good as the books.
