Super helpful, small (size of a smart phone), and practical book to have on hand if you are going to Japan. PERFECT for traveling. The phrases are spelled out in both Japanese and phonetic spelling so you can learn to recognize and speak the syllables.
I'm annoyed that some of these reviews are punishing this book with 1 star reviews just because they "didn't need it" because their "English was accommodated" when they went to Japan. If you're not a brat who expects their language barrier to be accommodated everywhere they go, and you're looking to learn basic communication in Japanese from scratch, this book is great.
I am using this book in tandem with "Learn Japanese in your Car" on Spotify, and it's such a useful tool. It puts together the words I've been hearing into complete contextual phrases and is really accelerating and maximizing my learning.
The categories are very intuitive and well organized. If you are just looking for a dictionary to quickly look up 1000s of words one at a time, you will find this frustrating and time-consuming to use. The dictionary portion is only a fraction of the book. If you are looking for a small, travel size book to help grow your Japanese vocabulary and sentence structure while learning basics, this book is for you.
Instead of using this book, I used Google translate and a phrasebook app. The phrasebook app had audio, so it was easier for me to learn how to say it.
I ended up only using five phrases, which were thank you, check please, where is something, sorry, and excuse me.
