A clear and fun approach to essential Japanese skills.

The simple and unassuming charm of the long-running Minna no Nihongo series of textbooks has seen them become globally popular, for their instant and welcoming access to the Japanese language. With the revised 2nd edition, there are more pictures and up to date vocabulary to introduce Japanese with a current touch that more naturally reflects the daily conversation and themes encountered in modern Japan and regular sentence structure exercises and drills are given a fun side to make them more approachable and easy to remember. A surprising amount of practical vocabulary and grammar is made available to beginners in this initial volume, allowing them to make use of their Japanese skills immediately and build upon them through regular practice of reading, writing, speaking and even listening thanks to the accompanying CD. With this book, completely written in basic kana (with furigana over Kanji) a knowledge of at least Hiragana and Katakana characters is advised first, though the additional Translation & Grammar Textbook available to purchase at japancentre.com provides lots of English notes to ease and break down understanding each book chapter.

Written by 3A Networks.

Ideal for students of Japanese at SOAS University of London
For anyone learning Japanese in classes or in education, the hiragana version is especially helpful for immersing yourself into the language when reading.
Very useful for any beginners learning with a teacher
A great textbook in a good size. Laid out beautifully, to the point that even a beginner of Japanese would be able to understand what it was showing without the English grammar guide
*** textbook for a lot of uni students taking Japanese courses.
