Recommend A Book For A Complete Beginner!

Post by Bright Eyes » Tue 03.18.2008 12:49 pm

Hey,

I am keen to start learning Japanese,but am unsure which book to begin learning from.

Japanese from Zero looks like it might be a good place to begin?

How is Colloquial Japanese?

Thanks

Dave

I used Colloquial Japanese. I don't think you can really go wrong with it, although there are more comprehensive and expensive books out there.

I would suggest Genki or Minna no Nihongo but they are a bit pricey. They are the most popular among students. :D
