Japanese Words to Understand the Japanese Mind

Product Description

This is a book for foreigners wanting to read between the lines to see what the Japanese really think. Knowing grammar and vocabulary is not enough to really understand the Japanese mind since Japanese thinking is deeply connected to national traits built up their historical and cultural background. Japanese people communicate indirectly without saying everything. This book tells you the actual meaning or true feeling behind Japanese words with example sentences and situations. You can learn expressions and vocabulary while getting to know the Japanese mind.

This book is aimed at those at the upper intermediate to advanced level. All the text is in Japanese, but the readings of kanji are written next to the kanji. English translations are only provided in the form of word lists.
