New English-Japanese learner's dictionary

新しい 日本語就学 英和辞典

Kodansha's Communicative English-Japanese Dictionary.Until last year I worked at Tokyo's Takushoku University. During my time there I had the pleasure of becoming friends with one of the full-time English professors, Prof. Peter Sharpe. Just this year Professor Sharpe's work of the past 16 years came to fruition in the form of an English-Japanese learner's dictionary that he has had published by Kodansha International.

Having been a diligent student of the Japanese language myself for the past eighteen years I have a keen appreciation of and for anything to do with the English-Japanese divide, and welcome this new and excellent bridge across it.
