Don't let yourself be intimidated by the prospect of learning Japanese! Basic Japanese takes a friendly and innovative approach, emphasizing the structure of the language rather than just vocabulary. This method was pioneered by the author, Samuel E. Martin Modern. Once considered controversial, modern linguists now agree that the structural based approach for leaning a language allows for more effective retention than the traditional repetition-based approach.Although often overshadowed in the press, Japan is the third largest economy in the worldnot to mention a fashion and culture powerhouse. When you consider that Japanese is spoken by 125 million people worldwide, the advantages of learning Japanese become clear. Basic Japanese provides a comprehensive and thorough introduction to this fascinating language.Each lesson is set up to ease learners into not just understanding new material but mastering it, using a four-step method:Step 1: Basic Sentences: Each lesson begins with the key to quick mastery of spoken Japanese—learning and understanding new sentence patterns. Vocabulary is learned in context. A Basic Vocabulary section lists only essential words and phrases that are relevant to the theme of the lesson.Step 2: Structure Notes: Next the learner is guided through complete, in-depth explanations of the sentences' grammar essentials, to aid in mastering the sentence patterns.Step 3: Conversation: Authentic dialogue teaches the way people naturally speak, putting into practice the lesson's sentence patterns with common, everyday topics.Step 4: Exercises: An opportunity for practicing—and for strengthening your understanding of the lesson's key points.Accomplished teacher Eriko Sato has produced an excellent revision of Samuel Martin's classic text for the classroom and self-learners, while remaining true to Martin's voice and teaching style. Together they make the challenge of learning Japanese at once manageable, practical, and fun.
