Re:Books or software recommendation 8 Years, 10 Months ago Karma: 1  
well i can recommend the books that i used for my classes when i first started learning. i use the Japanese for young people series. there are 3 main books and each one has a workbook that goes along with each lesson. though using the main books may be a bit hard with out a teacher a person could use the workbooks for self teaching. the first workbook covers hiragana and katakana how to write them and say them while workbook two and three start teaching kanji. by the third book a person can learn 160 basic kanji. I started using the books when i was 15 and they were my favorite textbooks that i have used so far. anyone can buy any of the books off of amazon.com. i cant remember if there was a audio that went along with them though sorry.

Has anyone heard of James heisig?
He has a few books called "Remembering the kanji"(series)
and "Remembering the kana"
If anyone has heard of these books or have them could you please tell me what they are like and if you would reccomend them? Thankyou! ^.^

I have heard of them but haven't used them, so i can't comment on them personally. But I have heard great things about Heisig's books and is always recommended when trying to learn Kanji or Kana (but particularly Kanji since it's harder to learn)
