Boye Lafayette De Mente has written over 20 books on living in Japan and learning Japanese. This new edition of "Instant Japanese "has been revised by Henk de Groot and Yasuko Tsuji of the Department of Asian Studies, University of Canterbury, Christchurch, New Zealand.Review:
"This is a great phrasebook geared towards tourists and business people traveling to Japan." —The Japanese Page
"This book was very handy during a 7 week trip to Tokyo. The progression of words is very useful when trying to acquire the language, but it's very difficult to try and find a particular word or phrase. The book included some good introductory material about pronunciation and structure that's also helpful for wrapping your head around Japanese. I would recommend this for someone who wants to make a concerted effort at learning some basic Japanese." —Goodreads
