Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

To communicate effectively in Japanese—to speak one's mind and be understood, and respond appropriately to what is said—is a goal for most beginners, but not an easy one to achieve quickly. JAPANESE SENTENCE PATTERNS FOR EFFECTIVE COMMUNICATION brings this goal within reach, teaching 142 essential sentence patterns for daily life—all the ones an intermediate student should know, and all the ones a beginner should study to become minimally proficient in speaking. All are presented in a handy, step-by-step format with pattern practice on almost every page.
