Japanese Beginner Publications

Katakana Kantan

This book is a great resource to incorporate into your teaching of Katakana. It introduces all 46 Katakana syllables in 16 lessons, in innovativeways that appeal to and motivate students. The workbook introduces the script through basic survival skills, such as reading a menu, shopping, writing one’s name etc. Students are then presented with a variety of reading and writing tasks aimed at aiding acquisition, from basic crossword puzzles to comprehension exercises using store floor guides, TV schedules, sales brochures etc. Learning to handle authentic texts from this early stage in their study of Japanese will motivate pupils and give them the skills to move on to more advanced real tasks.

Nihongo Kantan

Centred on the specific learning needs of young adults, Nihongo Kantan consists of a 300 pagetextbook and accompanying CD. Based on a carefully selected theme, each unit is laid out in a clear, colourful way, and includes conversations, linguistic and cultural notes, individual and group exercises, topic-based Kanji, listening exercises, and much more. With its comprehensive and easy-to-use layout, Nihongo Kantan is both an ideal classroom and self-study textbook that can be used independently or with its companion workbooks Katakana Kantan and Hiragana Kantan.

Hiragana Kantan

This book adopts a similar approach to its companion, Katakana Kantan. This colourful work aims to bring fun and enjoyment into mastery of the Hiragana syllabary. Syllables are introduced on a needs basis, rather than on the traditional approach of following the order of the Hiragana chart. Hiragana chart. The workbook guides learners with structured writing practice, recognition exercises, authentic reading exercise, dictionary skills exercises and freehand writing practice. Hiragana rarely stands alone in Japanese writing, and this book exposes students to Kanji with Hiragana. Learners quickly realise that Kanji is a help and not a hindrance to reading. Hiragana Kantan is the first workbook of its kind accompanied by a CD.
