5.0 out of 5 stars Even better than Book 1 21 Mar 2008
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
After going through Book 1 twice, I was ready to take the plunge.
Again, the book shares the same clear layout as Book 1. It contains many different types of learning activity to encourage learners to keep practising.

Each chapter uses a new topic (e.g. my cat) to present the language. The topics chosen seem very relevant to normal life and not as esoteric or specific as some texts, where focus has been on business trips or such like. Here it's down to earth subject matter for everday life. Some of the example conversations are quite funny too which helps memory retention and I think are included for light relief.

Book 1 had some strange little typo's and other odd choices for language but Book 2 seems to have none of those.

There are some particularly excellent sections regarding the explanations of particles, something that should and is done concisely. This is an often recurring theme; concepts are explained with a minimum of fuss.

Above all, the book will increase your fluency. You are exposed to many language patterns and get a chance to practice the language in a multitude of ways. As it should be.

Good job to the authors. Book 3 already on its way.

5.0 out of 5 stars Japanese self taught 26 Feb 2012
Format:Paperback
This is an amazing set of books to have in your library if you are serious about learning Japanese. I bought them for my son as he is learning how to speak and write the language, the books give step by step tuition on how to do both in a very easy to understand way. Learning Japanese, then you'll do well to purchase this wonderful trio of books.
