Written and spoken Japanese is filled with words borrowed from English and other languages. And many of these words have been abbreviated, which makes them even easier to memorize. For instance, we watch anime (animation), shop at the depato (department store), send text messages on our sumaho (smartphone), and listen to BGM (background music). This special edition of Kana de Manga features nearly 200 abbreviations, contractions, and acronyms. Studying these “shortcuts” is a fun and easy way to jump-start your Japanese!
