Excellent language books: Japanese

There are so many books online fore learning languages and they can all vary greatly when it comes to quality. I’ve bought many language books and some of them are fantastic, while others are no-gos so bad that they can set me back weeks in my learning.

So, here are the language books I’ve bought that I’ve absolutely loved (the bad ones will remain nameless)

Japanese from Zero!

This is a series of Japanese textbooks that take you through different levels of skill, starting from zero, and working your way up!

The book clearly explains subject as well as offering fun and helpful exercises to help reinforce your learning!

These books were, in my opinion, TOTALLY worth the time and investment!

 

Teach Yourself Complete Japanese

This is a fantastic book which really manages to set the information in your mind through explanation, exercising and also making use of that information for later exercises and dialogues, so you can reinforce your knowledge.

Learn Complete Japanese was actually the first Japanese book I bought and it was worth every penny as this book really does teach you so much and insures a solid grounding of understanding.

The only issue I found with the book is that, in my opinion, it doesn’t use Hiragana as much as I would like and relies mostly on Romaji. However, that does prevent the student getting too hooked up with learning the characters, and gets them familiar with the language.


Colin’s pocket Japanese Dictionary

For all of your translation needs, this dictionary is a fantastic travelling companion

I take this book most places I go (It’s come in handy helping some lost tourists in London before now!) and it hasn’t failed me once.

This book is a must-have for Japanese learners.


 

I hope my top 3 books are interesting to you! I will be doing more with each book I buy!

Thanks for reading and see you soon!
