This companion volume teaches the basics of katakana, the script for writing loanwords borrowed from English and other languages. The book introduces the characters not in the traditional a-i-u-e-o order, but in a radical new one that allows students to sound out words from the very first page.

Kodansha's Katakana Workbook is the best resource I've found so far for learning katakana. If you're just starting out learning Japanese, I recommend starting with Kodoshana's Hiragana Workbook, as it's generally recommended to learn hiragana first. This book provides plenty of practice space, clear instructions, and practice flashcards. Also, the lessons are ordered to provide greatest ease for leaning words, instead of learning by the standard gojūon layout.

A very helpful way to learn the Japanese Katakana characters. Takes one character at a time and comes with flash cards.
