What textbook should I use after completing Adventures in Japanese?

There are several textbook options available to those who have completed all three volumes of Adventures in Japanese. For students who intend to sit the AP® Japanese Language and Culture Exam, we strongly recommend Dekiru! The twenty compelling lessons in Dekiru! are organized around all the cultural themes covered on the exam, and every lesson includes targeted practice in the four language skills areas, as well as exercises that mirror the format of AP® Exam questions.

Alternatively, Adventures in Japanese 4 (3rd Edition) explores “the Japanese soul,” providing students with a nuanced look at the social, historical, and cultural forces that influence Japanese life. Lessons center around sophisticated dialogues, narratives, and literary excerpts, helping students build such advanced skills as honorific speech and the use of proverbs.
