Reviews - What do customers think about Japanese Katakana for Beginners: First Steps to Mastering the Japanese Writing System (Tuttle Language Library)?

Great Study Aid for Learning Katakana  Mar 25, 2008
This book, together with "Japanese Hiragana for Beginners", has proven itself indispensible in the learning of the Japanese writing system. There is room for practicing both the reading and writing of each character, along with a memory aid for keeping them all straight (although I think in the end, "shi" and "tsu" still look uncannily alike, despite the author's protestations). The two books also teach frequently-used Japanese words, together with reading practice of words and sentences. There is a list of American names written in katakana at the beginning of the book, and lists of other English-derived words in the back. This book comes highly recommended because of the flashcards at the end which you can tear out and use to study.
