Now that I am living in Japan and learning the language and having to use it in everyday life, I find myself reading this book more than my daughter, where it is useful as a tool to increase my vocabulary. There is also a nice index in the back of the book with both the english as well as romaji text for the Japanese words. I wouldn't use this book by itself to learn Japanese, but do not think that was ever its intention anyway. This is a nice book in that it does include the kanji/hiragana/katakana text for the words as well as how it is pronounced. The actual Japanese script for the words is great because it can help you identify it on packaging or other times you need to learn the written word. For a real beginner, having the romaji pronunciation help there is a plus, since learning all of the kanji scripts and their respective pronunciations can be more than a little overwhelming (at least there are more limited numbers of hiragana and katakana scripts to learn). For those of us learning Japanese and needing to use it in everyday life, having the romaji pronunciation there is a big help, vs. a more academic approach of strictly learning all of the Japanese script (kanji, hiragana, katakana) for the words.
We also use this book to teach adult students Japanese. Like the saying "pictures worth thousand words", the grown-ups also find the classes interesting when using material like this one.
One great thing about this book is that Kanji and English are also listed next to each picture. That is a big help for those who are serious about learning how to read and write Japanese...
We highly recommand this book.
I would not recommend this book to anyone. It's quite obvious the editors and even the writers did not speak Japanese and used something similar to google translate for the words within the book! After buying this book and previewing it for my class I was very disappointed.
Let me explain the verb section as an example. The verb to "look/watch/see" is "miru" under "watch" they have a picture of a kid watching other children play ball the English equivalent of the Japanese used for that picture is "to stand watch/to guard". It doesn't matter which textbook you use, to look/watch/see is one of the first verbs you learn. Under the verb "to sleep" the English equivalent to the word they provide is "to lie dead/to lay in repose/to be dormant" instead of the verb "to sleep" which is another verb you learn at the basic level. I flipped around the book and found other mistakes. I would give this two stars because it does have some correct words, however, if you are not someone who can speak Japanese it's impossible to find out if the words are correct or not. This book is simply riddled with errors.
Instead I would recommend anyone interested in a book like this buy "The Usborne First Thousand Words in Japanese" book. That book had native speakers writing the meaning of each word and I couldn't find any mistakes. Also there is a quick section in which to teach the first 2 basic writing systems of hiragana and katakana as well as a section dedicated to proper pronunciation. It's worth the money, and miles better by far than this book.
