Reviews - What do customers think about Japanese Berlitz in 30 Days (Japanese Edition)?
good book with some reservations Mar 21, 2007
The textbook in the package is well written and covers a lot of territory. However the binding (at least in the copy I bought) is very tight; the book tries to snap shut. My hands begin to ache after trying to hold the book open for a few minutes. Also troubling is the high level of background noise on the audio CDs, like they were dubbed from very old cassettes. If you are serious about learning Japanese you might consider Genki 1 or some other college textbook with cassettes if you can afford it; Japanese in 30 Days might be an alternative if you are on a tight budget and have strong hands.
Great way to learn! Mar 2, 2007
I think this book is great. It is very intense if you plan to do all the lessons in 30 days, but possible if you want to learn the language. The grammar is loaded on you in very well written lessons. If you are looking for an easy way to learn a language, where you do not have to memorize grammar or words, you don't want this book. If you want to actually learn something, you do want this book.
I already speak Mandarin Chinese and it is not easy to learn a language. It takes time to build vocabulary and adjust your thinking to the language rules. I have always wanted to learn Japanese as well, and I really think this book will give anyone the correct direction to really do something useful with the language. Plan to work though!
