could you recommend a good entry level japanese language book? something that's not terribly dull & dry?

i'm pretty sure i'm going to apply to go teach english in japan starting this summer and i want to have a chance to learn their alphabet(s), some grammar & pronunciation, those sorts of things, before i go.

I used Japanese the Spoken Language (JSL) and Japanese the Written Language (JWL) by Jorden and Noda, lots of colleges use it for first and second year, but it's really not much good without the class and the tapes/cds. I hear you can find the cd materials on the the university of ohio's website or someplace, but still, having a class atmosphere (with someone to help and correct you) is much more helpful than trying to learn on your own. Even having someone else who's doing it with you helps.

the male (active) force IS the ego. (hence our patriarchal male ego-centric society.)
