This task-centered textbook helps beginning learners master fundamental communication skills through a practical, step-by-step approach.
Every unit progressively builds up communication skills by taking learners through tasks that challenge them to practically apply their skills in diverse activities. In contrast with lessons that focus on rote memorization of sentence patterns, Nihongo Daijobu! introduces learners to essential constructions in a flexible, intuitive way, helping them to acquire the power to communicate in basic Japanese in a short time. This book responds to the needs of learners who have struggled with putting classroom Japanese to use in the real world.
Book 2 builds on the everyday communication coping skills acquired from Book 1 by increasing the accuracy and breadth of the learner’s power of communication and by deepening understanding of key elements of beginning grammar.
• The accompanying supplement provides grammar review sheets and basic kanji drills.
• Comes with approximately 2.5 hours of audio material.
