This book was the first book I ever had in school for leanring Japanese. The book begins to use romaji and then later on goes onto using hiragana and katakana along with kanji. I learned a great amount from this book and plan on buying the other series for further studying. There are some errors however, but these are only translation errors which can very simply be figured out by a person. This book goes great along with its workbooks and tapes.
I long awaited the volume 4 book to come out.
The writers of the book even recieved an award from the NCJLT.
Congratulations to co-author Hiromi Nakai Peterson! On September 30, 2004 the National Council of Japanese Language Teachers' honored Peterson with its NCJLT Teacher Award 2004 (K-12).
