Japanese for Teens

Author: J.R. Maroney


ISBN: 0977892638


Page: 138

View: 1422

This workbook is for beginners and makes learning Japanese fun. It has been created specifically for young adults whose native language is English. Each lesson consists of three sections: Vocabulary, Grammar, and Practice. Emphasis is placed on contemporary Japanese including frequently used Manga and Anime phrases. Japanese for Teens can be used as the primary teaching text or as a supplement to other texts. Initially, students are expected to learn the basic 46 hiragana characters before starting lesson one. Associations to help them learn the hiragana are included. Students are given a chance to learn contemporary vocabulary at the start of each lesson. Furthermore, students have fun with the material by creating Manga stories in each lesson. Because students are encouraged to write in the book we do not recommend buying used versions. Note: Although part of cover may appear blurry in Lulu's preview, the actual printed product has no issues.
