The newest edition of the pocket-sized combination phrase book and dictionary provides both Japanese characters and Romaji, the standard Roman alphabet transliteration of Japanese. The book presents more than 1,500 expressions and their English meanings in two separate sections: Japanese-to-English, and English-to-Japanese. Other features include an additional 2,000 key words, and useful tourist aids-city maps, travel tips, and food and shopping guides. Japanese at a Glance makes an ideal travel companion for the English-speaking visitor to Japan. The book is also available with an approximately 90-minute-long audio tape and script booklet as part of Barron's very popular Now You're Talking in No Time! language-learning series. The tape supplements the book with spoken Japanese in dramatized situations similar to those encountered by English-speaking travelers in Japan.
