It's a fun little book for a beginner

By Jan De Bondt

It's a fun little book for a beginner or people who don't know Japanese yet. I'd even gift this to someone going to japan who doesn't want to learn japanese anyway. In that case, the point-and-speak idea of the book could be very useful. Especially when you have some kind of emergency.

But I wouldn't recommend it to an intermediate level or above. Unless you like to know the names of different kind of fish, other foods, names of some places and that kind of stuff.

Still, I like the way how it's presented with those little images that accompany the words // small phrases as it helps me remember the vocab. And of course, it's themed.

Don't expect furigana on the kanji, there's only modified romaji and the english translation.

The booklet also contains a section with tips on Japanese culture, but it's too bad they didn't put more details in it, but that would make it too thick to carry around perhaps :)

If you have a water-soluble marker, you can even ask people to write on the back of the book, handy! You just wipe it clean after use.
