"Minna no Nihongo" is one of the most popular Japanese language textbooks for classrooms and individuals across the world.

From the book: "Minna no Nihongo is aimed at anyone who urgently needs to learn to communicate in Japanese in any situation, whether at work, school, college or in their local community. Although it is an introductory text, efforts have been made to make the exchanges between Japanese and foreign characters in the book reflect social conditions and everyday life as faithfully as possible."
 

Each of the 25 lessons in Minna no Nihongo Shokyu 1 Honsatsu 2nd Edition (Textbook for Beginners) contains the following:

-Sentence patterns and example sentences
-Conversation
-Drills
-Practice

Using this textbook with its companion " Translation & Grammatical Notes" will help you understand the lessons efficiently and help reduce frustrating misunderstandings in your studies with easy-to-understand, detailed explanations. "Translation & Grammatical Notes" is available in English, French, Spanish, German, Portuguese, Russian, Chinese, Korean, Indonesian, Thai, and Vietnamese.

We highly recommend purchasing The Complete Set (Minna no Nihongo Shokyu 1 Honsatsu, Translation & Grammatical Notes in your native language, and CDs) which includes all the necessary set of tools to most efficiently learn Japanese.

Although this Complete Set is aimed at beginners, in order to get the most out of the companion text, "Translation & Grammatical Notes," you must be familiar with hiragana and katakana. If you don't already know hiragana, please consider purchasing our set of "Kana Flashcards" along with this product. There are about 46 kana characters, so if you learn 5 to 10 hiragana and katakana per day, you can learn all the kana in as little as a week.
