Not as entertaining as the Level II workbook Jun 19, 2008
Japanese For Busy People is an odd series: It was not composed at once, but instead each piece came at a different time. And this is evident both in the main books and the workbooks.
While I really enjoyed the Workbook for level II, I must say this one is too dry, exercises are too short, and overall lacks the "story" that was present in Workbook II thanks to Mr. Biji. Our friend is still featured, but not as prominently as he should have.
On the other side, this book gets more serious than the previous and provides valuable cultural information, together with Kanji practice, a necessity for those going Heisig-Sensei's path.
Effective way to learn Japanese Jul 23, 2007
We used this in my high school as our Japanese textbook, and I loved its style and effectiveness. Great language book.
Japanese study guides Jan 5, 2007
These books, Japanese for busy people, are the best self-study books i have used. i have been studying Japanese for a long time and have used a lot of books and these are by far the best series!
Schoolbook Jan 3, 2007
This is not a very difficult book, which is both a good and a bad thing. Most people probably use this as a part of their class, and it is not too difficult to be used in self-study. Some grammar is introduced in a weird order - some very common (and not difficult) structures are introduced quite late. I liked "Shin Bunka Shokyuu Nihongo" a lot more, but wouldn't recommend it for self-study.
The kanji-reference in the end does not (if i remember correctly) include kanji learned in japanese for busy people 1 & 2, which IMO is a problem.
Even if it has its problems it's not too bad. Would recommend it for self-study, if it fits your level (past JLPT4, maybe studying for JLPT3).
No book... Nov 9, 2006
I thought the JFBP III book came with this package, however it was only two audio CD's. I am not completely through it, but most of it seems like listening practice, two Japanese speakers in a conversation.
