This is the main textbook for the 2nd edition of the Minna no Nihongo series, used by most UK universities. This version of Minna no Nihongo 1 is written with Hiragana (Japanese) so you will need to be able to read Japanese to use it! This version of Minna no Nihongo 1 also assumes you are going through the book with a teacher and not on your own. CD included.


ITEM ID: #4270


Since it was first published in 1998, Minna no Nihongo has been a long-selling and classic textbook for both teachers and learners of Japanese alike. Now the series has been reborn in this second edition, with the vocabulary and conversational settings being revised (words that have gone out of usage have been replaced with new expressions frequently in use, and conversational settings have also been updated), and a CD of the dialogues and exercises included with the book. Illustrations for use in reviewing have also been increased. The grammar syllabus is basically the same, however, allowing for a smooth transition for teachers.

While these books are not meant as a study aid for the Japanese Language Proficiency Test, upon completion of book one, the student is roughly at the N5 level of the Test, and upon completion of book two, the N4 level.

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
