Books Info:

Teach Yourself Beginner's Japanese Script free pdf The Japanese writing system was introduced into Japan by the Chinese around the middle of the 6th century AD. The Chinese language is very different to Japanese in structure so the writing system was gradually adapted to fit the structure of the Japanese language. There are now three scripts that make up the Japanese writing system (four if you include roman script): kanji- hiragana and katakana. The latter two are known collectively as kana This book will make the reading and writing of Japanese accessible to you through a step-by-step approach which will help you to gradually build up your knowledge of Japanese script. Units one to four introduce mainly kanji which developed from pictures of nature. Units four and six to eight teach you how to decipher more complex knaji giving you the tools to take you study further on completion of the book. Units eight and ten give you the chance to put your learning into practice through real-life examples of signs, notices and warnings, and also a number of reading passages. Unit five is devoted to hiragana and unit nine to katakana. There are lots of practice activities and ideas to help you learn and remember these two scripts.
