5.0 out of 5 stars A must companion, 14 July 2011
This review is from: Minna No Nihongo: Translation and Grammatical Notes Bk. 1 (Minna No Nihongo 1 Series) (Perfect Paperback)
This book is a required companion for the main textbook, Minna no Nihongo 1. Whereas the main textbook has been entirely written in Japanese, this book provides vocabulary lists, related grammar and translations in English for the 25 units in the main book. As with the main textbook, no romanji is used for Japanese words. For this reason the book might be a little difficult for first-time introduction but I must note that it is also the suggested way to learn.

There are exactly two pages of vocabulary, one page of translation, one page of themed vocabulary and two pages of grammar explained for each of the 25 units in the book. Usually there are three to six grammar topics covered for each unit. Such predictability of the book opts for short-term study goals because you can estimate the amount of study time you will spend per unit.

Apart from the translations the grammar book does not require you to switch to the main textbook every second. Unit vocabulary, themed vocabulary and grammar is provided independently of other resources. I studied half of the grammar book before I started reading the textbook.
