Publisher's Description

This page-a-day Japanese language pad teaches a new Japanese phrase each day—useful vocabulary that comes in handy for everyday situations when visiting Japan.

Although more people are studying the Japanese language than ever before, others are still wary of starting because they believe, "it's too difficult." But A Japanese Phrase A Day will show absolute beginners that Japanese is in many ways much easier than other languages and it will help intermediate Japanese learners review and improve upon their past studies and practice Japanese everyday. Japanese is a fascinating language that uses Chinese characters (kanji) as well as two other alphabets (hiragana and katakana). After a few weeks of gradual progress your ability to read Japanese, write Japanese and speak Japanese will grow tremendously.

This calendar like desk companion is divided into monthly topics and builds upon itself, one day at a time. Japanese phrases are kept short, simple and functional.

Each of the 365 pages include these four components:
  1. The phrase or dialogue in Japanese characters.
  2. A transliteration using English letters (romanji), which gives English speakers a guide to pronunciation.
  3. The English translation.
  4. A related note about the phrase, Japan, or Japanese culture to add context.
Audio for all of the Japanese Phrase A Day entries is available online. Listening and repeating after the native speakers in the audio files will help you to practice Japanese regularly and polish your spoken Japanese and Japanese listening comprehension. To get started, turn to Day One and begin studying the phrase, its meaning, pronunciation and cultural context. Then tear off the sheet and practice writing it a few times. In a matter of days you'll be on your way to reading and writing Japanese!
