Situational Functional Japanese

Edited by Tsukuba Language Group, Tsukuba University

This widely praised three-volume series, written for learners with no previous knowledge of Japanese, develops everyday communicative skills as well as an accurate and deep understanding of the Japanese language. The series provides a comprehensive introduction to the subtleties of Japanese grammar, vocabulary, and the writing system; even at the beginning levels, it gives thorough, accessible, and useful explanations, respecting the student's abilities and desire to learn. Students will return to the Notes volumes time and again for their clear and organized explanations of both the technical and the cultural aspects of fluent communication in Japanese. The companion Drills volumes provide focused practice opportunities for mastering new skills and reviewing previously learned material, and the cassette tapes provide ideal practice in pronunciation and listening comprehension.
