With this book, learners can confirm the meaning and content of Minna no Nihongo Shokyu I Dai 2-Han Honsatsu (Minna no Nihongo Shokyu I Second Edition - Main Text) in English. This book is very useful when learners are studying by themselves, particularly for class preparation or for reviewing what has been studied in class, or when the instructor does not have time to introduce new vocabulary. Learning efficiency will improve if the learner looks up the vocabulary before class.
At the beginning of the book, there is an explanation in English of the characteristics of the Japanese language, Japanese characters, and Japanese pronunciation, as well as a translation of commonly used words and expressions in class.
Structure of each lesson:
1. Translation of the vocabulary used in the lesson in the Main Text (new words, conversational language, and expressions)
2. Translation of sentence patterns, example sentences, and conversations in the Main Text
3. Reference vocabulary useful for studying the lesson and information on Japan and Japanese culture (English)
4. Grammar explanation of sentence patterns and expressions studied in the lesson (English)
Currently, the Translation and Grammar Notes book is available in 13 languages plus a Romanized edition [English], making a total of 14 versions.
