Overview


A truly innovative and enjoyable way to learn Japanese-based on manga.

Like the original Japanese in MangaLand, the second volume in the series combines the phenomenal popularity of manga with language instruction to make learning Japanese easier and a lot more fun than with traditional approaches. Japanese in MangaLand Vol. 2 helps even beginning students master the basics of conversational Japanese with fifteen lessons including drills, the patterns of Japanese grammar and more than 360 kanji characters to assist in the learning process. Eleven of these lessons cover such grammar topics as intransitive/transitive verbs, particles, honorific expressions, and even dialects and proverbs.

The four conversational lessons will prove invaluable to readers traveling to Japan by teaching them phrases and expressions to use at airports, hotels, shops and restaurants. Another new feature in this second volume is the culture notes section, which provides insight into life in Japan today.

    Best way to learn is to start with something your familiar with.

    Language has always killed me. I spent years trying to learn Spanish, Italian, and Chinese throughout late middle school, high school and college. None of it in the end payed off. I was left with a bunch of textbooks and sheets about words and phrases that in a months time meant gibberish to me. Nothing stuck. Nothing ever applied.

    One day, years later, while watching anime (subbed) I decide that i want to take one last crack at a language and immediately chose Japanese. I had professors, Japanese friends, Anime fans, and people who had gone to Japan prescribe a multitude of books, websites, forums, etc. Some were useful, other interesting, all very informative, but none were able to capture my undivided attention.

    Then i found the "Japanese in Mangaland" series. I enjoy Manga, and i want to learn Japanese. This was a brilliant way of taking something I enjoy and merging it with something I wanted. It was the Catalyst I had been searching for.

    I am happy to say that I have made a fantastic start towards learning Japanese and hope to continue.

    "Japanese in MangaLand" is a series for those seeking a familiar territory from which to launch themselves into the Japanese language and culture.
