About the Book

A complete handbook for learning to read and write Japanese katakana, the syllabary that is the second of Japan's three writing systems introduced to all beginning students. Using real-world examples, illustrations, quizzes, and practice squares, this book teaches correct stroke order as well as examples of how katakana are used for words borrowed from other languages, for emphasis, and in advertising for its “cool” factor.

About the Book

Learn the second key Japanese syllabary from every angle: reading, writing, and real-world examples.
