Japanese for Busy People 50% off and $5 Gift Certificate

Post by clay » Wed 11.12.2008 4:18 pm

I don't usually mention store sales here since those interested can get our newsletter, but I had a school return 120 Japanese for Busy People Kana I textbooks and I'd like to find them good homes. 8)

They are all new (third edition), in perfect condition, with a free CD, and a free $5 gift certificate good at TheJapanShop.com. Just $13.50 for the textbook and a $5 gift certificate that can be used on any future order.

If you know of someone who is interested, please let them know. The 50% sale is only good until tomorrow since it was part of the Super Suiyoubi sale, but the regular price ($17 something) is still heavily discounted and the $5 gift certificate will still be offered after tomorrow.

120 returns, eh? Bugge*

They use these books in our local community centre, but I expect this year's pupils are all stocked up .....
Next year, I'm sure I can find buyers for you ^_^

Let me try to fill some people in, anyway.....

Right here. I just noticed it doesn't have a signup for our Weekly Wednesday Super Suiyoubi sale list. I'll add it, but here it is at the store.

I may still have some :(. We do very well with Genki, but JFBP is really slow. I'm not sure why since it has a CD and is newly revised.

Much appreciated! Maybe I'll keep the 50% sale a few days more.

I s'pose I might as well buy it. I'm not quite the target audience -- it's too bad it doesn't use kanji, and it's probably a tad too much on the business side of things -- but I find the CD attractive. I'm trying to take a more audio-heavy approach to language learning.

Thanks! I just sent the gift certificate. I'm not at the office now to look when and where kanji is introduced in the series (third edition).

I don't really mind doing a little dictionary work to look up kanji anyway. Who knows? I might actually learn something. :mrgreen:
