Boost your language skills with this time travel-themed workbook!

Following the success of Tuttle's Beginning Japanese Workbook, this next book in the series picks up where the previous installment left off, starting at the intermediate level and continuing through the Advanced Placement (AP) Japanese program's level of language competency. Both formal students and independent language learners will find this book to be an interactive and dynamic tool for mastering the Japanese language. Each workbook also includes free online audio resources designed to improve readers' pronunciation and listening skills.

In this volume, Kiara, Ben, and Kenichi continue their adventures with Tomo's time machine. Their historical and cultural encounters are made even more real through the book's dialogues, images, and accompanying audio. The engaging storyline unfolds as learners advance, adding extra motivation to master new material.

Using a context-based method, students will acquire 125 new Kanji (a cumulative total of 300 with the Beginning Japanese Workbook). The content is carefully aligned with ACTFL National Standards, making this a valuable and practical resource for any learner.
