    Excelente guide to japanese 5

    It works like a dictionary of words, how to use them un phrases and examples in their usage, it's great for reviewing and practicing the grammar. I totally recommend buying it.

    Libro completo 5

    Este libro fue de mucha ayuda cuando hice la prueba N4 en Diciembre de 2019. Sirve para repasar todo lo que se ha dado en otros libros como Genki o Minna no Nihongo.

    Excellent 5

    Easy to understand with concise explanation and example sentences. The size is also very convenient. This is a very good reference book for studying Japanese and should be a part of every Nihongo student’s library. Kudos to CD Japan for the very efficient service and timely delivery. I received my book in 8 days. This was my second time to order because I was really happy when I received my first set of order. I’m hooked to ordering books from CD Japan now.

    I don't use this much... 3

    I think this book is fine - lots of content, lots of examples, clear and concise, etc. But I struggle to find opportunity to actually use it. You could certainly read straight through it like any other book, but I think you're better off buying a grammar drill book where you can learn grammar and check your understanding with practice problems. Once you learn N4 and N5 grammar, you will know most of what's in this book. So when I come across grammar I don't recognize at this point, it's probably not in this book. Also the inclusion of romaji is really unfortunate. Furigana would have been way better...

    For the commited learner 5

    I am fascinated what makes Japanese different from English. The sentence structure, the many conjugations, the use of Kanji to communicate ideas and words instead of strings of roman letters, statements and structures that do not translate well into English, the use and the scope of formality and humility, the literal meanings of statements. Understanding the Japanese language is like understanding the Japanese people and their culture. This dictionary is an incredible resource that has been helping me unravel the mysteries, nuances, and structure of this wonderful, diverse, and challenging language. Using this dictionary meanings putting in the time and the effort. You must read carefully, and rigorously. Perhaps take a pencil and write as you read. There are definitions for different parts of speech and grammatical terms, sections that focus on important characteristics of basic Japanese, entries for important basic grammatical elements and parts of speech, appendixes for references to conjugations, forming compound words, making numbers, and more. This dictionary maybe closing in on 30 years but I think this is still a relevant resource. I fell lucky to have this because it has been very vital for understanding what I and reading, saying, and communicating. As in person who studies Japanese independently I recommend you start by familiarizing yourself with the grammatical terms. Then, start studying the sections labeled Characteristics of Japanese Grammar. Reference the main grammatical entries and appendixes as they are encountered in your studies and practice writing and reading out-loud the sentences you compose using each entry you study.
