A Book for Business Japanese Jul 4, 2007
For every student of Japanese their comes the time where you are looking for some more advanced textbooks to handle business Japanese. This book helps with good text examples and clauses and if you work in a company you will have to cover topics like introduction, telephone calls, asking and requesting and the book will help to fill those gaps. The vocabulary in each section help to encourage the learning and the English explanations making sure to understand the context and therefore it is a good bridge between an advanced Japanese book and a standard learning book. A prerequisite is that you should be able to recognize an amount of kanjis otherwise it takes far more time to work through this book. I hope for the next revision of this book the publisher will make a CD available.

A Good Remedial Guide Jul 11, 2000
Japanese for Professionals has proved to be an ideal book for me. I have 4 years of formal Japanese study and lived in Japan for 2 years. However, over the past 5 years I have not been using Japanese. This book is helping me review and practice for potential work in Japan. Just what I need to get back on track.
If you do not have extensive experience in Japanese (understand how to read kanji, etc.) this book may be too advanced. Even still, it provides good vocabulary explanations, so you may be able to use it.
Content covers all the basics, such as formal introductions, as well as helpful ideas for document writing and the like.
