This guide book is specifically designed to help you to ask for the things you’re most likely to need when visiting Japan and to give you the skills to cope with situations you might find yourself in. It is different from other courses in that you’ll also learn to understand the likely replies to your questions. You’ll hear key words and phrases used in dialogues between native speakers, so you’ll learn not only how to say them but how they are used in conversation.

This booklet contains the key phrases and selected conversations for each unit, with translations, for easy reference. It also gives learning tips, lots of cultural information, some extra vocabulary and simple explanations of how Japanese works. You can carry this small booklet while travelling to Japan, and refer it while enquiring something to native people by simly reading the content in Romaji (Japanese written in English).

So, let’s get started!
