About this deal

The Kana Workbook has been specially designed for students wishing to learn the two basic Japanese scripts, hiragana and katakana. Rather, it is designed to help learners consolidate their understanding of syntactical structure through lessons that focus on how to talk about topics relevant to daily life.

By that I mean the beginning of very chapter introduces a few new words and concepts, and the rest of the chapter showcases sentences that use those words/concepts, presenting you with basic patterns and structures for you to plug the new words into. It was established to meet the practical needs of people who are not necessarily specialists on Japan but who wish to communicate effectively in Japanese. The Workbook for the Revised 3rd Edition of Japanese for Busy People III offers readers longer and more complex reading passages familiarize you with new vocabulary and the conventions used in Japanese writing. I give it 4 stars for a good beginner book, but if you've been studying Japanese longer than a year, this is probably not a good book for you. They will also learn the appropriate expressions and words that are essential for day-to-day interactions with people in Japan.Each chapter introduces target grammar and vocab gradually, so it's never dumped on you all at once. The sentence structure is always "(somewhere) ni ikimasu/kimasu/kaerimasu", but it's always "(somewhere) DE aimasu/mimasu/tabemase/etc". I came to agree with a friend who's an expert in Japanese: use the English alphabet at first to get one's head around the grammar and vocabulary (while learning the Japanese alphabet (kana)).

So if you're just needing some basic Japanese to survive business trips to Japan / hosting Japanese colleagues, this book is probably fine. All of these are issues are solved when this book is used in a classroom environment (as is the case with me), but as stated I think this would be a difficult book to use on its own.Finance is provided by PayPal Credit (a trading name of PayPal UK Ltd, Whittaker House, Whittaker Avenue, Richmond-Upon-Thames, Surrey, United Kingdom, TW9 1EH). This helpful practice book is intended as a companion to Elementary Korean but can be used with any other Korean textbook or as a stand-alone self-study guide to learn Korean.

Like the JBPI, the book's lessons are organized into 8 units, each of which covering a specific topic. With over 20 components including texts, workbooks, CDs, videos and teacher’s manuals, it is also one of the most comprehensive.

The Art of Palm Reading also known as chiromancy or palmistry is the art of evaluating a person's character and future life by "reading" the palm of that person's hand. this is a acceptable introductory choice, as long as you are willing/able/motivated enough to use other resources (like the internet or the library) to fill in the blanks. This Workbook for Volume 2 (intended for both kana and romanised editions) includes exercise conversations from the textbook,short dialogues, target dialogues, and additional materials, many of which are accompanied by illustrations.

Grammar and content topics are carefully selected to assist learners to effectively develop sentence patterns and vocabulary related to each topic through the practice of talking about them. Practice conversations, listening, rudimentary comprehension, and grammar and vocabulary usage on each topic. The grammar explanations only teach you enough to be functional, there are no deep digressions into the socio-psychological meaning of 'wa', the path it takes is clear and simple.

Each entry covers the lessons presented in a unit, and there is a field for adding comments on the entry. The student will learn one character at a time and move onto reading and writing words and simple sentences.
