Read from February 08 to March 31, 2012

This book was very handy during a 7 week trip to Tokyo.

The progression of words is very useful when trying to acquire the language, but it's very difficult to try and find a particular word or phrase.

The book included some good introductory material about pronunciation and structure that's also helpful for wrapping your head around Japanese.

I would recommend this for someone who wants to make a concerted effort at learning some basic Japanese. If you're just looking for a phrase-book that you can look things up in while speaking with someone, I would go elsewhere.
