In the 22 years since its publication, Japanese for Busy People has won acclaim worldwide as an effective, easy-to-understand textbook, either for classroom use or for independent study. Now, more than a decade after its first revision, the series has been redesigned, updated and consolidated to meet the needs of today's students and businesspeople who want to learn natural, spoken Japanese as effectively as possible in a limited amount of time. At each level of the series, enough vocabulary and grammar have been presented to enable the learner to communicate in uncomplicated adult Japanese without having to memorize excessive amounts of vocabulary and sentence patterns that are not immediately useful. All components of the series have been prepared under the guidance of a working group of experienced Japanese language instructors who reviewed and tested the material in an authentic classroom environment.

Japanese for Busy People iii: The Workbook was developed for mid-beginner and intermediate-level students wishing to improve their speaking, listening, and reading abilities. Students at these levels inevitably find it difficult to retain all the patterns and expressions they encounter in their textbooks, let alone use them in conversation. This all-new workbook helps students get over the language-acquisition hurdle by providing fun and effective supplementary exercises and activities for the lessons in Japanese for Busy People III: Revised 3rd Edition

Japanese for Busy People II: Revised 3rd Edition features:


  • A free CD containing 35 minutes of listening exercises
  • Innovative "Practice" pages for mastering the sentence patterns presented in the main text
  • Reading drills based on blogs, graphs, and expository writing
  • Over 450 new words for daily use
  • Lively illustrations
