Hajime no Ippo
(First Steps in Japanese)
Target Users General Learners

ž Sumiko Taniguchi, Eri Man'nami, Ayumi Inako & Hiroki Hagihara ž

An introductory/beginner's conversation text
With its 15 everyday situations, this book allows the learner with little knowledge of Japanese to communicate effectively and immediately with Japanese people while gaining a foothold in the language. Romanized lettering is provided for those who cannot read hiragana or katakana (Japanese syllabaries), and only the most basic grammatical structures are covered. Everything in the book is translated and grammatical explanations are also provided in the same language (English, Portuguese, and Spanish versions are available). A strength of the book is in showing what to do or say when you do not understand or cannot hear what your Japanese counterpart is saying to you.

Hajime no Ippo (English Version [with CD-ROM])
The English version of Hajime no Ippo comes with a CD-ROM. The CD-ROM has all the dialogues found in the book, plus role-plays and practice exercises.

Hajime no Ippo (Portuguese and Spanish Versions [with CD])
The Portuguese and Spanish versions come with a CD, which covers all the dialogues in the book (Japanese only).
