JAPANESE APANESE ee ee ONS JAPANESE FOR EVERYONE ‘This textbook is a new, unique course designed for classroom ‘use as well as self-study. Its objective is to lead beginning students up to a point where they are able to communicate effectively in practical, everyday encounters. The course pre- sents dialogues and expressions in Japanese, together with useful cultural information, enabling students to use the lan- guage as a native speaker would in a variety of real-life sit- uations. Primarily notional-functional in approach, the course is a structured program devoted to the systematic development of students’ language skills. With meaning and use of language in communication as the prime concern, full attention is given to grammar and structure practice as means of ensuring that learners acquire a firm understanding of,and ability to apply, all new material. Moreover ample opportunities for written and oral practice are built into every lesson of the course. Each lesson begins with a chapter from a continuing story, followed by functional explanations and exercises which en- courage students to take an active part in the lesson. The sylla- bus is structurally graded. Equal emphasis is given to the development of oral and written skills. ‘* Accompanying Tapes: Four 60-minute cassettes accompany the textbook, bringing the characters to life and providing lively renditions of all dialogues in the text. In addition, listening comprehension exercises are recorded for each lesson. Ideally suited for presenting lesson material to an entire class, or to individuals or small groups in need of additional practice, the cassettes ‘expose the students to a variety of native Japanese-speaking voices. *TEACHER’S MANUAL Softbound/136 pages/257 x 182mm “WORKBOOK Softbound/280 pages/257 x 182mm “KANJI BOOK Softhound,248 pages/257 x 182mm 2,980 (in Japan) ER TSIPN fBi2,980P9 (AC 2,894F5) Japanese Syllabic Chart é TI AKEEEES LO WERE SEESLE. eS bl 7 lala] ala] s|F]salz na [it |7»| ha atari [stale] Cl lon be nif] E | hi 3) 7lul | 7 [mult] Aalsulr|» nu] 3.| 7 | fu al sie [G+ [tele] | se] c) ne | ~|<| he Bi) t)olc}a}ko] Z| vjsof& no| 1d | + | ho Se ]¥a|kyal le] y x|shal ¢) nya] Ue) Ex |hya X94 a]kyu] Lm] 2/shul5 nyu] Up | E 2) hyul Sr |¥a]kyo[l 1] 73 |sho}} t nyo} Ut x | E 3 | hyo} 4| v7 | oa[ ¥| | 2a | | ae ba x/¥laluly ale] Fi bi 6 {7 [ou] |x| aula] | zu [al 7 [bu (F| 7 | ge | | | ze | | 7 | de X |X | be | | zl] a]oo] z) 7/20 | F | do (| #] bo} ¥e|¥xlavalle| yx] ia [bel Fe] ja te] [bya] ¥p|¥alavul»|%al iu foo/Fa| iu] | Up |e 2 |byu| ¥x]¥alovolts|7a| io [5z/F2lio[ | | [oz|ea)bve Notes 1.
