Description

More Making Out in Japanese is a fun, accessible and thorough guide to the Japanese language as it's really spoken.

This prasebook follows the bestselling Making Out in Japanese providing additional (and classic) phrases for travelers, including ones to help you make acquaintances, discuss likes and dislikes, share a meal, go out on the town or develop a romantic relationship.

If you are a student, businessman or tourist traveling to Japan and would like to have an authentic and meaningful experience, the key is being able to speak like a local. This friendly and easy-to-use phrasebook makes this possible. More Making Out in Japanese has been completely revised and expanded to be even more helpful as a guide to modern colloquial Japanese for use in everyday informal interactions-giving access to the sort of catchy Japanese expressions that aren't covered in traditional language materials. As well as the Romanized forms (romanji), each expression is now given in authentic Japanese script (kanji and kana with furigana pronunciation clues), so that in the case of difficulties the book can be shown to the person the user is trying to communicate with.

This Japanese phrasebook includes:

A guide to pronouncing Japanese words correctly
Explanations of basic Japanese grammar, such as, intonation, word stress, and particles
A guide to male and female usage
Romanized forms of words and phrases (romanji)
Complete Japanese translations including Japanese characters (kanji) and the Japanese alphabet (kana)
Useful and interesting notes on Japanese language and culture
Lots of colorful, fun and useful expressions not covered in other phrasebooks

About Todd Geers

Fresh from their student days in Japan, Todd Geers and Erika Hoburg wrote the first edition of Making Out In Japanese in the late 80s because the Japanese they learned in textbooks wasn't the Japanese they were hearing spoken around them. This book has been a contribution to the real education of non-native speakers ever since. Their daughter, Elisha Geers, has been studying and teaching in Japan for the past three years.

Illustrations by Akiko Saito who graduated from Musashino Art College. She lives in Tokyo and creates most of her illustrations with her cockatiel, Romeo, perched on her shoulder.
