Item Description...
Originally published in 1990, this acclaimed language-instruction text is recognized as one of the most user-friendly and effective programs available both for classroom use and self-study. Based on a notional-functional approach, which emphasizes the social purpose of language, Japanese for Everyone takes the absolute beginning student to a level where he or she can communicate well in everyday situations. Because the world has seen such dramatic changes since the books publication, Japanese for Everyone has been revised and updated to reflect the way we live today, including references to currency, prices and technology, maps colloquialisms and slang.

The course is divided into twenty-seven lessons, with each lesson consisting of dialogues and expressions in Japanese, together with useful cultural information enabling students to use the language as a native speaker would in a variety of real-life situations. Since the meaning and use of language in communication is the main focus, full attention is given to grammar and structure practice to hone the students ability to apply new material. Moreover, ample opportunities for written and oral practice are built into every lesson. Each lesson begins with a chapter from a continuing story, followed by functional explanations and exercises which encourage the learner to take an active part in the lessons. Equal importance is given to the development of oral and written skills; and limited use of romaji helps the student learn hiragana and katakana faster.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Excellent Book  Jun 16, 2008
I bought this book when I first discovered I was interested in learning Japanese. The book does use Kana from the beginning, and that caused me to buy books on learning to write Hiragana, Katakana, and Kanji.

I still have this book, and I still use it for reference. It's not an easy book for a complete beginner. You'll need other books to supplement it. But for overall usefulness for someone who is really interested in the language, and for someone who understands that they will need more than just this book, in my opinion it's excellent.
Its mostly pretty good for what it is  May 24, 2008
Its probably one of the best for those who have at least a basic background of Japanese skills or have learned it elsewhere. Because the book is mainly in kana and starts you right off into it. The revised edition is well organized and does define most of the words, occasionally theres some new words introduced that weren't defined. I found that the lessons move quickly so that you don't feel like that its taking to long to go through the book. This book is recommended by me, and I feel that it can help everyone learn Japanese if they try it out. Also, the tapes aren't included, i had to download them from somewhere else... thats the only real main issue i have.
