Self-studiers can also use it as a standalone workbook for practicing and learning Japanese on their own. It focuses on the four necessary language skills of speaking, listening, reading and writing--and contains worksheets and activities covering vocabulary, grammar, and conversations in the context of daily school life, business, and travel. An included audio CD contains drills, dialogs, and listening comprehension exercises for activities in the workbook. Contemporary Japanese
is a textbook series for beginning students of Japanese at the college or high school level. It is intended for classroom use as well as self-study. Each lesson in the books is concise and has a single, clearly-defined objective. All lessons make use of the "active discovery" approach which encourages rapid learning through "guess and try" problem-solving and participation as opposed to rote memorization. This highly efficient method uses real-life conversations that make learning fun by involving you in discussion with your peers. It also removes the fear of saying something wrong!All disc content is alternatively accessible on tuttlepublishing.com/downloadable-content.About the Author:Eriko Sato
