This book lists approximately 4,800 core Chinese words with English equivalents including standard American pronunciation.  Main entries are in Pinyin (Romanized standard Chinese pronunciation) alphabetically with Chinese characters (both simplified and traditional if applicable). In the next line, pasts of speech label ([n.] for nouns and [v.] for verbs) and the entry’s English equivalents followed by standard American pronunciation with focus on stressed syllable.*in bold print.

A syllable is part of a word that contains one vowel sound. In every word of two or more syllables, one syllable is stressed. It’s called ‘stressed syllable’. The vowel sound in that syllable is louder, higher in pitch, and longer than the other vowel sounds in the same word.

The contrast between stressed and unstressed syllables is very important because it helps to create the rhythm of English. The native English speakers rely more on stressed syllable to understand what you say than on the individual sounds of the word.

This book is ideal for learners of English as a second language who want to communicate more effectively and also for learners of Chinese who know English.

Learn Japanese and Korean in English anywhere with smartphone or tablet! 

Japanese and Korean are sister languages basically based on the same Chinese character words. Through extensive interactions in various fields for a long time, the two countries have many similarities in terms of language much more than any other country in the world.  Of course, Japan has "Kana", while Korea has "Hangul" as own characters, but they are phonetic characters.  More than 90% of Japanese and more than 80% of Korean language derive from Chinese characters words.  Surprisingly, 2/3 of the two language share exactly same Chinese character words. That means, if one knows basic educational Chinese characters, one can understand the other language and can communicate easily if only know how to pronounce equivalent words.

This book lists 8,759 core Japanese words with Korean and English equivalents.  Main entries are in Kana (Japanese alphabet) alphabetically with Chinese characters, if any, followed by romanized Japanese pronunciation.  Next, in the same line, parts of speech label, and the entry’s Korean equivalents followed by romanized Korean pronunciation.  Finally, in the same line, the entry’s English equivalents.

This book lists approximately 9,000 core Japanese words that can be searched with English equivalents. It’s ideal for learners of Japanese as a second language who want to communicate more effectively and also for learners of English who know Japanese.

Japanese is written with three different scripts: Hiragana, Katakana, and Kanji.    Typical Japanese words are written with Hiragana and Kanji. Katakana is usually used to write foreign words other than Chinese.

English main entries are in alphabetical order and stressed syllables of them   are in boldface type for clear communication in English. (The contrast between stressed and unstressed syllables is very important because it helps to create the rhythm of English.) Each main entry is followed by parts of speech label and the entry’s Japanese equivalents. All Japanese equivalent for main entries are written  in both Rōmaji (roman letters) and Japanese writing: Kana and Kanji (Chinese   characters) if applicable.

 [example: abbreviate  [v.] shōryaku suru 省略する, tanshuku suru 短縮する]

Learners can select to learn Chinese characters according to their needs and levels. For those who know Chinese characters, it might be easier to learn Japanese since almost 90% of the language derives from Chinese characters.

Since many Japanese prefer to use foreign words in daily conversation, Japanese pronunciation of foreign words are romanized in this book for better communication with Japanese.
