Item description for Tuttle Japanese for Beginners: Mastering Conversational Japanese [With CD] by Sachiko Toyozato...
The prospect of learning the Japanese language from scratch can be a daunting task to say the least, but fear not There is a path to fluency--"Japanese for Beginners" provides an thorough and friendly introduction to this fascinating language. Although often overshadowed in the press, Japan is the third largest economy in the world-not to mention a fashion and culture powerhouse. When you consider that Japanese is spoken by 125 million people worldwide, the advantages of speaking Japanese become clear. Specifically designed to teach spoken Japanese as it is used in daily life rather than in a formal setting, "Japanese for Beginners" is perfect for a tourist or business person traveling to Japan or a student who wants to get an A in Japanese class. Up-to-date and concise, it features the most well respected and proven approach available. Full lessons break down the more difficult aspects of the Japanese language such as pronunciation and grammar, while MP3 and audio CD's allow for listening comprehension and practice. The writing element focuses on the easy-to-read Latin script ("romanji") rather than on the more difficult Japanese script ("kanji and kana"), cutting down on the time it takes between starting the book and being able to speak Japanese.
