A new and exciting approach to basic Japanese for young adults
The Association for Japanese-Language Teaching (AJALT), renowned for its Japanese for Busy People series, has developed a comprehensive course for teaching Japanese to young adults in English-speaking countries.
Japanese for Young People is a new three-level series designed primarily for junior-high and high school curricula encouraging systematic Japanese-language acquisition through an enjoyable but structured learning process. With an emphasis on coordination of structure and verbal communication skills, this second Student Book introduces more building-blocks of Japanese grammar through Key Sentences, Dialogues, Exercises, and Tasks.
This Student Book is accompanied by a set of three cassette tapes and a fully-illustrated Kanji Workbook which features over 100 pages of activities and games to familiarize young students with ninety of the most basic Chinese characters introduced in this book.
With charming illustrations and cultural notes throughout, Japanese for Young People provides an unintimidating start to learning one of the world's most difficult languages.
