Japanese for Busy Peopleis the most popular Japanese language textbook series in the world. With components including texts, workbooks, CDs and teacher's manuals, it is also one of the most comprehensive. Now, a decade after its first revision, the entire series has been redesigned, updated and consolidated to meet the needs of 21st-century students and businesspeople who want to learn natural, spoken Japanese as effectively as possible in a limited amount of time.The books feature not only a sleek, new design but also a unit structure that groups thematically linked lessons together, making it easier than ever to learn Japanese.Moreover, they now come with CDs containing audio for the dialogues and listening exercises from the texts. The exercises in the books have also been thoroughly revised to incorporate more comprehension and production tasks. Many of these exercises are illustrated, making for a stimulating learning experience, and the purpose of each one is clearly stated.This first of three volumes introduces "survival Japanese -- the absolute minimum amount of Japanese needed to live in Japan. Thus, the vocabulary and grammatical items it introduces are limited to about a third of what is typically introduced in a first-year course. In addition, the book features notes on Japanese culture intended to expand the learner's understanding of Japan, its customs and people.Japanese for Busy People Iis available in two formats: romanized and kana.The Romanized Version uses romanized Japanese throughout, with kana in the Opening Dialogues of each lesson.The Kana Version -- exposing students to hiragana and katakana from the very beginning -- uses only kana. The content of the two books is otherwise exactly the same.The companion volume,Japanese for Busy People 1: The Workbook for the Revised 3rd Editioncontains a variety of illustrated exercises for mastering the basic sentence patterns presented in the main text.
