Taking Japanese for Granted 2 - Rediscovering the Japanese Language-

Product Description

Finally, the second volume of the popular title "Taking Japanese for Granted  –Rediscovering the Japanese Language-"' is available. This is a unique collection of stories illustrated in anime form which discusses common mistakes made in the Japanese language in recent years - mistakes made by Japanese natives no less. The first volume was wildly popular in Japan and was picked up by magazines and TV programs for it’s playful humor, used while pointing out the many pot-holes to avoid in daily conversation.
 
There are a lot of things to be gained from this book other than the Japanese language aspect; topics include Japanese customs, history of the Japanese language, and more. Even expressions that may be difficult for beginners to grasp are easily explained thanks to the accompanied illustrations - so Japanese learners of all levels can enjoy using it. There is no English translation available, however most segments include Japanese readings of the kanji, so as long as you know hiragana you should be fine.
