Our textbook, Marugoto, was developed for adult learners of Japanese as a foreign language, designed with an emphasis on using Japanese to communicate and on understanding and respecting other cultures.
Focus will be on the Japanese structures that underline communication, vocabulary, grammar, and sentence patterns.
Each topic in the textbook contains situations where people from a variety of cultural backgrounds interact in Japanese.
You can experience various aspects of Japanese culture through photographs and illustrations while listening to a number of natural conversations taking place in each situation.
Through 4 levels of textbook, we'll learn Japanese from zero to beginners/intermediate level in a year.
Please refer to the links below for the curriculums of each level of textbook.
