Japanese for Busy People 2 provides the basic language skills necessary to function in a professional environment.
In the ten years since its publication, Japanese for Busy People has won acceptance worldwide as an effective, easy-to-understand textbook, either for classroom use or for independent study. In this new edition, numerous revisions and additions have been made, taking into account the comments and responses of both students and teachers who have been using the course.
Vocabulary and grammar have been limited to about one-third that usually encountered in beginner courses, and words and patterns that students will find immediately useful are emphasized.
The appendicies in the back of the book include answers to the exercises in the chapters, to further self-study.
The Japanese language portions of this book are written primarily in the English character script romanji, which is used by English-speaking students who have not yet mastered Japanese characters. For the kana version of this text, please see Japanese for Busy People Course 2: Kana Text .
