Reviews - What do customers think about Japanese for Young People III: CDs (Japanese for Young People)?
not bad but ... Mar 6, 2007
it could be so much better. Again as in book II, the artwork is downright ugly and there are too many quizzes and not enough kanji. The kanji were introduced at too leisurely a pace IMO. To be fair, even though I knew all JLPT4 kanji, I did learn new stuff from this workbook --- but it's not something I want or need to keep. I xeroxed the quizzes and will donate this to charity for a tax writeoff.
This was amazing! Nov 17, 2004
This series is an amazing and overall outstanding approach to learning Japanese. I ordered it last summer and was done with the first book in a week. I am now in school, but have had enough time to finish the second and am currently on this one. This book's use of kana and kanji with furigana (kana under the kanji for pronunciation) are extremely effective with reading and learning to write. This book also is great with grammar and helps teach a lot of vocabulary. For anyone that has learned another foreign language and understands it (as I know Spanish, German, and English), this is a breeze; I would also reccomend this to new learners as well. This book is fun and easy to learn at any level. I highly reccomend this book to anyone that is interested in learning or even getting a better command of the Japanese.
