At last a book that introduces you to real Japanese - the kind you can't find in textbooks.
Introduction: Includes a clear pronunciation guide, and throughout there are additional notes on points of language and culture.
Phrases are listed according to typical real-life encounters with speakers of Japanese, such as:
• Making acquaintances
• Discussing likes and dislikes
• Sharing a meal
• Going out on the town
• Developing a romantic relationship or quarreling, even through to having sex and getting married or splitting up!

I am sixteen and have been studying japanese for five years...so when I came across this book recently I would have appreciated it more if it were all in hiragana, katakana, and kanji, not romanji. This book is all columns...english on the left, japanese on the right, it combines words for better pronunciation, which is perfect for the amateur...but that is the only learning tool used in this book. But I reccomend it for its teachings of words you would find nowhere else.
