Who else has used Japanese for Busy People?
I’m talking about the kana version, of course, but I’m finding it to be a great self-study book as a complement to WK, and I’m able to follow it a bit better than Genki, which would be great in a classroom but I feel like 1/4~1/3 of that book is geared for outside instruction and group work. The lessons and activities in Japanese for Business ( ) People are nicely scaffolded so it’s easy to go step-by-step.
I do have a question, though… I’m still on book 1 and by looking at reviews online it seems that books 2 and 3 are not as strong as book 1? And there are mixed reviews of the 3rd editions? Does anyone here have any insight into that?
