Nihongo Notes Vol. 1: Language and Culture - The Japan Shop Nihongo Notes Vol. 1: Language and Culture - The Japan Shop
Nihongo Notes Vol. 1: Language and Culture $ 25.50 $ 25.50
It's difficult to suggest a level for this book. Each article is written both in Japanese and in English (with romaji). So, definitely beginners could read and learn a lot, but I think the topics covered are more for the upper beginner level. Using simple, but real-world conversations, the authors take one neglected--but certainly important--grammatical or cultural point. As you can see with the scans, the right page is in Japanese and the left is in English with romaji. This is certainly nice if you have a Japanese tutor. Your tutor/teacher can read the Japanese and explain any nuance not mentioned in the book.

Seiko RM2000 Romanized English-Japanese Learner's Pocket Dictionary [USED] $ 99.00 $ 159.95
SOLD OUT! Sorry... If you are interested in getting the next one we find, please let us know.   From Clay: The RM2000 was a lifesaver for those new to Japanese. It was the only dictionary that displayed romaji as well as "real" Japanese. Seiko stopped production some ten years ago and this is the first one I've found in nearly six months. So, if you are just starting out with Japanese and are looking for a quick boost, consider this dictionary. OUR GUARANTEE: It is used, but in excellent condition. We offer a 60 day guarantee: except for user-caused issues (dropping it in the toilet, for example), if it stops working or has any problems, just return it to us for a full refund. It includes two new batteries and all functions have been tested. It works like new and looks pretty good. There are no scratches on the screen and the outer case looks pretty good. It is extremely easy to use; you can start using it immediately. -- English to Japanese/Japanese to English dictionary (Romanized) Integrated thesaurus and spell checker Large 5 line by 30 character display Search for phrases; idiom/example sentence search Displays keyword, part of speech, English or Japanese equivalent, stress and accent marks, example sentences and idioms The Kenkyusha Romanized English-Japanese Dictionary is one of the most comprehensive and popular dictionaries among those who are studying Japanese as a second language.
