Easy Kana Workbook / Edition 1 available in Paperback

This practical workbook is for all students of Japanese who want to learn the basic phonetic writing system in use by the Japanese. This workbook is a self contained course, which can be used both for independent study or in the classroom. It can also serve as an ideal supplement to any basic conversation course in Japanese.
The two sets of phonetic characters, hiragana and katakana, are known collectively as kana. Since hiragana is usually taught first in Japanese schools, it is presented in the first section of this workbook, followed by katakana.
Both the hiragana and katakana sections provide plenty of practice in writing characters, words, and sentences. In addition, each section concludes with a practice and self-test.
At the back of the book are several useful appendices, including complete hiragana and katakana charts as well as answers and translations to the practice and self-tests.
The Easy Kana Workbook combines a systematic aspproach with ample practice and the reinforcement necessary to master both reading and writing hiragana and katakana.

This book is very useful and helpful. When I first saw it I thought it wouldn't help.Now I've memorized tons of characters and I know to say them and write them by memory. It gives you great exercises and how to write and pronounce characters. It also tells you how to read Japanese both ways and how words and sentences are written. Before each chapter it gives you hints and tips on how you can understand it more thoroughly as well. I really would recommend this to anyone who is a beginner because you will get a lot of knowledge from it.(After finishing this I would read japanese for busy people!)
This is a very good book for learning Hiragana and Katakana. It gives you plenty of practice for both writing and reading. If you're trying to learn kana, this is the book for you.
Buying of this book was my first step to realizing my dream to learn japanese and now I don't regret my choice. It's a real treasure for self education. It helped me not only to learn the needed basics but I really enjoyed working with it.
