Contemporary Japanese: A Textbook for College Students is designed for beginning students of the Japanese language at the university level. It is designed for use in the classroom as well as for self-study. Each lesson is based on a single communicative objective and makes much use of the discovery approach (guess and try)so that students learn through problem-solving and participation as opposed to being taught by rote. Its unique innovative and effective way of teaching through observing real-life conversations takes a fun approach to learning the language that will motivate independent and non-vocational learners.

Contemporary Japanese Workbook Volume 1 serves as a supplementary material for Contemporary Japanese: A Textbook for College Students Volume 1, as well as a self-sufficient comprehensive workbook for practicing and reviewing Japanese. Focusing on four language skills (speaking, listening, reading and writing), it contains 13 chapters of worksheets and activities on vocabulary and grammar usage, and conversations in the context of formal and informal college daily life, business and traveling. An audio CD containing drills, dialogues, and listening comprehensions for most activities accompanies the workbook.
