Finally!! I Virtually discussed briefly all my books. So what does this mean? This is the last post in this series about Japanese textbooks. On some subjects I have to many books and on other topics I can Maybe use some more books. Conclusion I can’t take all these books with me. I already reach my limit on my luggage’s weight. So which books di I take me to Japan? In part 7, Japanese study books: where to buy?
In every language you will find a variety of dictionaries. But in Japan there are more variations, than in some other countries.

But first the ‘ordinary’ dictionary , as you and I know them. in part 6, Japanese study books: Dictionaries
This whole series about Japanese textbooks is getting a bit out of hand. At this moment I cannot say out how many posts this series will exist. But that does not matter any more.
