Product Description

Book Description

This is the second book in an intensive one-year introductory course in Japanese, also suitable for those who wish to work at a slower pace. Students who finish this course will have a firm grasp of how the language works and enough knowledge of the writing system to tackle everyday written material with no more than a dictionary.

About the Author

Richard Bowring is Professor of Japanese Studies at the University of Cambridge and Master of Selwyn College, Cambridge. He is co-author of The Cambridge Encyclopedia of Japan (1993) and has written a number of Japanese Language textbooks.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Very good book, perhaps one of the best choices, also for self-study. Volume two has exercises and vocabulary while volume 1 has dialogues and grammar. Grammar is very well explained and dialogues are long and cover most situations. The only minus is that there are no keys for exercises which is certainly a problem for self-study. Therefore the 4 stars

5.0 out of 5 stars very useful and uncomplicated 5 Jan. 2007
By Ariel G. Scafuri - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
When a book is good, we may review it. When its excellent, we lack words. This is an excellent tool for introduction to study of japanese. The book has marvellous editing, its big size helps to make it a very confortable experience, it is full of exercises and is very comprehensive. For learning the first steps of japanese language, I don't see anything more straight forward.
2.0 out of 5 stars There is no answer key... 12 Jan. 2013
By Iza Smarty - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book has the vocab needed for the first volume. It has exercises for the lessons.

But, there is no answer key, so you have no idea if you are answering correctly. If you are trying to self-study, that lack of answers will make studying and learning that much more difficult.

It was too expensive to be this useless to me.
