This book is designed first of all to make the study of written Japanese a much less formidable task for the foreign student than it has traditionally been. Its second major purpose is to enable the student to achieve fluency in reading and writing the language in its everyday style. Essentially, the book reflects the language simplification movement now under way in Japan. This is an up-to-date and practical handbook featuring: the 1,850 most essential characters, the phonetic writing, easy-to-follow writing charts, useful definitions, everyday vocabulary, simplified readings and writing, and a full Index.
