Publisher's Description

Specifically designed to teach spoken Japanese as it is used in daily life rather than in a formal setting, Japanese for Beginners is perfect for a tourist or business person traveling to Japan or a student who wants to learn Japanese rapidly and effectively. Up-to-date and concise, it features the most well respected and proven approach available. Full lessons break down the more difficult aspects of the Japanese language such as pronunciation and grammar, while the MP3 and audio CD allows for listening comprehension and practice.

When you consider that the Japanese language is spoken by 125 million people worldwide, and Japan is the world's third largest economy, the advantages of speaking Japanese become clear!
