A handy cheat sheet of key Japanese grammar in a at-a-glance, easy-to-carry format!

The Japanese Grammar Language Study Card is the perfect resource for reviewing the main grammar that frequently appears in the N5 or N4 Level Japanese Language Proficiency Exam or the AP Exam. The compact, portable format is invaluable for anyone wanting to quickly review or expand their knowledge of everyday Japanese sentence and verb forms. This study card includes:

  • Key verb forms including plain and polite forms
  • How to use sentence particles correctly
  • How to make questions
  • How to use pronouns

The grammar points are clearly organized into color-coded sections. Each section has a concise explanation in English followed by examples given in Japanese script and romanized Japanese with English translation. Free online audio recordings by native speakers provide clear and accurate pronunciations for all the Japanese words and sentences, and Hiragana and Katakana alphabet charts are also included!

Designed for convenience, this study card is:
  • Laminated: to hold up over time and avoid being ruined by coffee spills

  • 8.5x11 inches: to easily fit into a folder or notebook alongside other study materials
