This text aims to offer entertaining shortcuts to mastering the Japanese language. It offers creative approaches to common problems that plague beginning students of Japanese. Difficult areas involving subjects, adjectives, verbs and particles are covered, in a straightforward, readable format. Making Sense of Japanese is the fruit of one foolhardy American's thirty-year struggle to learn and teach the Language of the Infinite. Previously known as Gone Fishin', this book has brought Jay Rubin more feedback than any of his literary translations or scholarly tomes,
