The Ultimate Japanese Phrasebook PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

The Ultimate Japanese Phrasebook free pdf World's first in-depth phrasebook of Japanese that also teaches the building blocks to build their own sentences. This is an ambitious new phrasebook for students who want to improve their speaking and listening skills. It features 1800 expressions for daily use, in English and Japanese: Japanese presented in both native script and roman letters. Topics include basic greetings, self-introductions, talking about the weather, getting around, ordering at a restaurant, visiting a Japanese friend's home, special events (birthdays, funerals, weddings, baby's birth), and much, much more. What sets this book apart from others is its focus on sentence-level utterances. Many phrasebooks present lots of useful vocabulary, but provide little or no guidance on how to use those words in actual sentences. "The Ultimate Japanese Phrasebook" shows you how Japanese sentences work, then allows you to alter them by plugging in different words. All the sentences are of the sort learners are likely to use in Japan, whether as students or professionals. Throughout the book, key vocabulary is listed along the bottom of each page, allowing learners to build on what they already know. And there are notes and special columns on usage and communication strategies. Best of all, the book comes with 2 free CDs containing ALL the sentences read aloud in both English and Japanese, so that readers can listen anywhere anytime. It features 1800 key expressions for making oneself understood in Japanese and 2 free practice CDs. Sentences are presented in real Japanese script side-by-side with roman transliterations, making the book accessible to both serious students and casual learners. It includes special columns on language, culture, and communication strategies.
