Product Description

This is the second edition of one of the most highly regarded textbooks on the Japanese language: Genki 1: An Integrated Course in Elementary Japanese. Divided into 12 themed chapters, it covers speaking, listening, reading and writing to cultivate overall language ability. Emphasis has been placed on balancing accuracy, fluency, and complexity.
