Book Description

Feb. 15 1999 Essential Phrasebook Series
A concise Japanese phrasebook and guide to Japanese language, Essential Japanese contains basic vocabulary necessary for communicating in Japanese.

Have you ever considered learning Japanese, but been put off by the unusual look of the characters? Don't let yourself be scared away! Japanese has been called "a very logical and poetic language," and with this concise and thoughtful phrasebook you will soon see why.

As the more than 450,000 Americans and 125 million people worldwide who speak Japanese can attest, the Japanese language is here to stay, and generations of young (and older) adults are determined to learn it. Part of Tuttle Publishing's Essential Phrasebooks Series, Essential Japanese is a great first introduction and phrasebook for the Japanese language. Perfect for business people or tourist traveling to Japan or for students who want to supplement their learning (and get an A in Japanese!), this book's easy indexing feature allows it to act as a Japanese phrasebook or as a Japanese to English Dictionary / English to Japanese Dictionary. All words and phrases are also written in Japanese Kanji and Kana (hiragana and katakana). A clever "point to" feature allows you to simply point to a phrase translated in Japanese without the need to say a word. You will soon find yourself turning to Essential Japanese again and again when visiting Japan and working or interacting with Japanese speakers

In this book you will find:
  • Over 1500 practical sentences for everyday use.
  • A glossary of over 200 terms and expressions.
  • Latest Japanese vocabulary and Japanese phrases for smart phones, social media and more.
  • Japanese characters (kana and kanji) as well as Latin script (romanji).

Titles in this bestselling series of phrasebooks include: Essential Japanese, Essential Chinese, Essential Korean, Essential Tagalog, and Essential Arabic.
