Vocabulary Book

Postby Kailene » Sat 03.14.2009 3:50 pm

Hey all!

Right now, I'm looking for a book with lists of vocabulary I can work on. I went on Amazon, but there were so many, I had no idea what to choose. At this point, I've finished Genki 1 and 2 and am about 3/4s through "An Intergrated Approach to Intermediate Japanese" by The Japan Times.

After I finish this textbook, I'm pretty sure that my Japanese class will just go onto reading regular books versus taking on a whole new textbook. Thus, I'm just looking for a book with vocabulary (at an appropriate level.)

Any suggestions??

Have you tried just reading?

RichVH~ Haha! Yup! I've already read your story~ 'tis awesome!!

As for just reading, I have plently of books that I practice reading, but I'm looking for something a little more concrete to build vocabulary skills. Basically, I book that every day I would memorize 15 or so words from and work my way through it.

Do you have a DS? If you do, you might want to check out My Japanese Coach. It's pretty bare-bones on the grammar, but since you're just looking for vocab, it will probably be ideal for you. It covers 10K vocab in total. The game doesn't natively let you skip lessons, but there's a cheat for it I got from Ubisoft (posted here). It's a pretty fun little tool, and for a $30 price tag, it's a small risk on a product that might be exactly what you need. :P

You're probably not as smart as you think.
