What are some good books I can learn Japanese from?

May 16, 2008 by admin 

I used to study it with the help of books and the like from my library while in school, but now that I’m graduated, I wanted to buy a good audio set to help me learn the language.
What are a few good titles out there that can help me learn Japanese?
For example, Living Languages, Berlitz etc…
I want to avoid Rosetta Stone because my computer is having serious problems right now, and my father won’t let me use his.
Thanks!

There are some books that are really good:

‘A Course in Modern Japanese’ (4 volumes) by the University of Nagoya Press (nagoya daigaku)

or

‘Minna no Nihongo’ (2 volumes) by 3A Corporation.

Both of these are used by universities in Europe in their Japanese Studies courses. They require knowledge of hiragana and katakana, but that is easily learned from online sources
