Reviews - What do customers think about Japanese For Young People II: Tapes (Japanese for Young People)?
good value and fun to use Feb 14, 2007
This workbook is nicely laid out and has plenty of exercises (though for some quizzes you need to refer back to the text which I didnt buy). I have Tuttle's "Kanji and Kana Handbook" and was learning kanji from that but it was sooo boring so I ordered this to motivate myself. Since I already knew all 100+ JLPT4 kanji before this arrived, I'm using this to review stroke order: this workbook actually //shows// the strokes being drawn in succession instead of simply numbering them as most adult texts do. If I had bought this workbook earlier, it wouldve saved me a lot of time when learning those first 100 kanji. My main complaint: the artwork is downright ugly and they shouldve included more kanji and less quizzes.
On a tangent ... with this workbook as a stimulus and White Rabbit Press kanji flashcards, students should be able to recognize at least 25 kanji per day. Writing the characters over and over again (using correct stroke order) further cements them into memory. Really wish they would make a workbook for all the 1945 kanji required by the Ministry of Education.
I'm using AJALT's Japanese for young People, and I like it Aug 23, 2000
I'm a student taking Japanese, and I really, really like these books. They're very interesting and in full color. The illustrations and everything about the book is great! I think anyone could learn Japanese through these books!
someone who wants to learn Japanese, Get this series Aug 23, 2000
I think that the Japanese for young people series is a very great series. I am learning Japanese and I really like these books. They are not just normal textbooks, with word after word after word. I WANT to sit down and study Japanese with these series, and I think that anyone will too. These books help you communicate in Japanese to other people very well for a student. The illustrations are very nice too.
