Welcome to Interactive Japanese
This language CD is a comprehensive multimedia workbook. It is designed for you to
have the opportunity to practise all skills at beginner's level Japanese
even if you can't easily meet with a native Japanese speaker. It is not
intended to be a textbook, and you will probably wish to consult a grammar
book, textbook or, if you have one, your teacher as the lessons go by. You
will also need to learn the kana (hiragana and katakana) before beginning.
The lessons are divided between two parts.
In the first part, the focus is on building up grammar, expressions and sentence structures. It is designed to
allow you to start using the language and to stimulate your creativity in
constructing sentences of your own.
In the second part, actual expressions
are introduced as they are used in Japanese conversation. These often differ
from one's expectations based on other languages, and this part of the
lesson is designed to help you speak Japanese in a natural and fluent way.
