INTRODUCING: Over +2000 Japanese Phrases to Sound Like a Native Japanese (Including Pronunciation Tips & Detailed Exercises)

Would you like to try a different way of learning Japanese? Are you tired of the traditional methods teachers tell you to use? What if we told you there is a better, more care-free way of learning Japanese and expanding your vocabulary to unprecedented levels? Well, guess what? There is! One of the best ways to learn Japanese is by using practical conversation guides The problem? You might feel like you don’t know where to start, or you may feel lost trying to read whatever pops up on the internet. That’s exactly why we created this book.

Japanese Phrases + Pronunciation Guides = Faster Learning

We know how difficult it may seem to learn a foreign language from scratch, let alone trying to put all that learning into practice. But what you might not realize is that it's fairly easy to fully incorporate the essentials of a language if you use pronunciation guides as a shortcut. Pronunciation guides allow you to virtually read out loud a certain ‘pronunciation clue’ and without realizing it, you will be speaking almost perfect Japanese. This will in time allow you to expand your vocabulary soon enough to travel to Japan, getting a much better grasp of the Japanese language before you do. Practical conversation guides work because they eliminate the stress of forcing yourself to learn. Instead, when you read out loud the different sections we’ve prepared for you, you will learn Japanese with much less struggle! Your goal is to simply focus on a section at a time (they only a take few minutes to read). Each chapter takes on multiple topics, including tips on how to build rapport with others, shopping, and asking for directions, just to name a new. We wanted these sections to be fun, interesting, and appealing, motivating you to keep on reading. That’s the very best way to learn, don’t you think?

BONUS: Pronunciation Guides + Detailed Multiple Choice Exercises

In this book you’ll find over fifteen chapters covering a multitude of topics in Japanese. Each chapter contains tables with three columns. You start by reading the first column –word or phrase in English-, then you move on to the second –translation to Japanese-, and then to the third one and read it out loud –it includes a pronunciation clue for that particular word or phrase. Once you’re done with this line, you move on to the next one, and so forth until you complete the chapter. It’s that easy and fun.

READ: Practical Japanese For Beginners – Over +700 Japanese Phrases & Expressions for Everyday Conversation

"Practical Japanese For Beginners" contains a multitude of vocabulary lists with key words to grow your Japanese vocabulary to unprecedented levels (right before you go to Japan!). We chose each phrase carefully, in order to support both beginners and intermediate students. We are absolutely sure will love this book, and we sincerely hope it helps you learn Japanese much faster.

Japanese is the gateway to the rich culture of the exciting and complex island nation of Japan. Some people get intimidated by the prospect of speaking Japanese—worried that it's just too complex and different—but these fears are unfounded. While you can devote a lifetime to the study of this or any language, picking up the basics of Japanese doesn't require any more than an interest and a willingness to try something new.

Author and Professor of Japanese Eriko Sato introduces the essentials of grammar and pronunciation, giving you a working sense of the language, before showing you Japanese in action. You'll also discover social customs, formalities, and manners, from how and when to bow to how to unwrap a present.
