This book is a classic. This is my second copy. I gave my first to my wife, a third grade teacher who has a new student from Japan who speaks only Japanese. This book has helped her and her class make him feel welcome, and help bridge the cultural gap. This new copy I keep at home, now that she has appropriated my original. It arrived in timely fashion and in the excellent condition the seller had promised.
Very nice and arrived fast!
This is a great little book to have on hand while in Japan. It only has about 1/3 of the book dedicated to the fundamentals of the language and the rest is of words and how to use them in a sentence. If you need a quick book to have on hand to get around this is a great little addition. If you are trying to get more in depth in the language before you go, this might not be a good book for you.

I don't have a lot of time to plan some of my trips and this was a great addition to my bag.
After buying this book, I regreted it and wished I had gotten a different Learn Japanese book. This book is mostly phrases. It would be helpful if you were in Japan and needed a quick reference for phrases, but if you wanted to actually learn vocabulary and such, this isn't the book for you.

If you want to learn to pronounce words in Japanese this is the book for you. A friend saw it on my bookshelf and I gave it to him and ordered another for myself. I visited Japan many years ago and studied it prior to arriving for several months then discovered most people speak English very well. I still had fun trying out the language although I could never learn to read it.
