5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent 17 Mar 2009
By Becky
As it's a travel pack it means it has all the basics, from getting around to shopping, being in restaurants and bare nesseccities! it's got a great format and written in a way so that pronounciation is easier to get the hang of, especially with the CD if you need help. Everything is put into neat sections and explained well, with excercises to make sure your on the right track. Another good feature is that every now and then, between sections it has interesting information about Japan and it's culture with nice pictures, so you can get to know a little bit about the country, not just the language.

The only negative thing i have to say about it is that the vocabulary is quite limited and you won't become an expert at the language with this, however, it's perfect if you just want a starter rather than being bombarded with lots of phrases, which once you've finished you can move onto a more complex book if you want.

1.0 out of 5 stars Disappointed buyer 17 Mar 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I bought this as it was from the BBC and with the CD thought that I would be able to learn in the car or train etc by listening. I found the book confusing as the pronounciation as written was not exampled in the CD. The CD only did parts of the book and did not even refer to sections or page numbers when being played. UK accent was fine but basically found it unstructured and although I did learn something it was not worth it for a basic tourist help for Japanese. It is difficult enough to learn the words and pronounciation without the complication of the characters. I finally stumbled on the Collins Easy LEarning Japanese 3 CD set and this is fantastic and does the job faster and easier than the other one I have bought (Berlitz Japanese Phrase book and CD
