Q: Hi, Richard! I noticed that someone was asking about good Japanese textbooks, and for what it’s worth, I stumbled across one in Barnes and Noble that I thought was great! It’s called, Japanese the Manga Way
” and it takes panels from actual manga and then offers full translations, pronunciations, and cultural or textual information. Presenting the lessons this way makes them a lot easier to remember, and the explanations are simple but thorough. I’m in the process of working my way through it right now, and I’ve found it very helpful.
Thanks for your site and emails! –Emily
A: Hi Emily, it’s always good to hear recommendations! I have a feeling this might help a few people out with their Japanese (or maybe even Christmas presents!)
