  • Shistus
Great book for English speakers. It has good explanations and doesn't baby you. It tries to immerse you as much as possible without being overwhelming. It is good for both self-study and classrooms. It starts a little strong so it is recommended that you have some knowledge (or at least learn the hiragana/katakana).
  • Cordann
Dialogues and vocabulary words have no English translations. The dictionary in the back doesn't even contain many of the words in the dialogues.
  • Mazuzahn
As an instructor, this is the first time I've used this book in language teaching. I like it for students familiar with the kana writing system because it omits most romaji (transliteration), forcing the student to use the Japanese writing system without props.
  • Hirah
I find this to be fun and easy to follow. It's been a while since I've taken a language class and this has been helpful.
  • Cargahibe
I am using this book without a teacher and, even though it was designed for a classroom setting, have found it very helpful.
-It uses very little Romaji and gradually weens off of that. When it is used in the beginning the letters are much smaller than the kana which is very important if one is planning to truly read and understand Japanese.
-The dialogues seam very natural, not a "this is a pen" talking but actually conversational talking. To keep on the lesson if something has not already been learned and doesn't have to do with the session then it is said in English.
-The journals are also helpful. They teach more novelistic Japanese along with the manga and conversation taught in the dialogues. In addition they make a textbook seam more like a story which makes it much easier to keep reading.

My only cons aren't really important ones:
-The dictionary in the back of each session doesn't cover words found only in the dialogue or journal but this can easily be remedied by something like Google Translate or another dictionary. iPhone has a nice free one called Kotoba! which helps when I don't know a word.
-The art is HORRIBLE. Someone who isn't into art probably wouldn't care but my friends and I are all very into art and laugh at the art in each section. "Can I do that? Just get a picture and paste an already-used pose on top of it and make money instead of drawing everything every time?"

All in all I think this is good for even the very beginners. The first things it teaches are the alphabets and the CD gives everything I sound to pair it with. If you are going to self-study don't expect to just read the book and get everything though. To self study with this you must take notes and practice everything multiple times. It was designed for a classroom setting where you would converse with teachers and peers throughout the lesson in what you have learned so to teach yourself you must do twice what you would in a classroom to make up for lost things, in my opinion. If you can do that though it's really fun. I love learning from this book.
Also, if you can find friends to study with you, do it!
Totally worth the price. It's fun, has good resources in the back, and is useful. Can't wait until I'm done with Beginner and buy advanced!
  • Winasana
I thoroughly approve of starting with little to no romanization.

I really wish that the authors had added furigana to the kanji - I spend more time looking things up than the exercise itself would require if they had just done this one thing.
  • Pameala
A good mid priced textbook for learning japanese, best used with the matching workbook.
Event though the book titles Begining, is not. I like the way they do the manga style and how the more you go deep into the book the romaji start to dessapear forcing you to understand and read the language. But the begining is too much. The book throw you into Hiragana and Kanji at the same time, the chapters doesn't explain much other than show you words to learn. A lot of times you try to read the Manga and is written in Hiragana, Kanji and Katakana, then when you go to the exercise everything is in Hiragana. Is too confusing having everything throw at you as a beginner with no guidance. If you buying this book, be sure to learn the whole three writings before you start with this book or you won't understand anything from Chapter 1
