Japanese for Busy People II

Association for Japanese-Language Teaching , Kodancha International Ltd , 1990
This text carries on from where "Japanese for Busy People I" leaves off, and, as in the previous work, the main focus is on having students acquire a working knowledge of everyday spoken Japanese. The book presupposes familiarity with the grammar and vocabulary in Book I, as well as a mastery of hiragana and katakana, and thus the use of romanised Japanese is kept to a minimum. This book introduced the student to kanji, and most of the opening dialogues are written in this form. The audio cassettes accompanying this book may be found in the Language Lab

Japanese for Busy People III

Association for Japanese-Language Teaching , Kodancha International Ltd , 1990
This is the final volume in the "Japanese for Busy People" series, the overall aim of which is the mastery of basic Japanese. In contrast to Books I and II, which put priority on ease of learning the essential rudiments of Japanese, Book III focuses on natural conversation in interpersonal relations, covering more complicated constructions and a greatet number of effective expressions. In this book, special attention has been paid to various styles of Japanese, including polite Japanese, informal conversation, and declarative writing. The format is the same as the preceding volumes, although kanji is used throughout in order to increase the student's familiarity with the written language. The audio cassettes accompanying this series may be found in the Language Lab

Japanese: The Spoken Language

Eleanor Harz Jorden & Mari Noda , Kodansha , 1987
This course is a carefully designed system and in order for the textbook to be as effective as possible, it should be used in the manner intended. The lessons in the book are structured in the same way: each contain core dialogues accompanied by their English translations, followed by notes on vocabulary and structural patterns, and finally exercises that test comprehension of all three areas. The student should tackle the lessons in order, as each lesson is heavily dependent on all preceding lessons. As the focus of this book is on oral proficiency, romanji is used throughout
