A comprehensive textbook: The 25 lessons in this book are designed to help beginner students acquire the four skills of listening, reading, writing, and speaking. You will learn simple sentence structures and then move on to more difficult topics. To do this, the course materials and sample conversations use concrete, easy situations or more abstract themes.
Latin or Japanese characters, you choose! This first manual of “Minna no Nihongo” is available in two versions: one version using Japanese characters and the other based solely on phonetic transcriptions with the Latin alphabet. We recommend getting the first version because the following manuals are written only in Japanese. It will therefore be easier for you to continue your learning.
Your basic Japanese language arsenal: We also advise you to get the book that includes the translations and grammar notes of the 25 lessons of this textbook. This other book is sold separately or in bundles in this shop. You can scroll down the page to learn more about these different options.
