Welcome to White Rabbit Japan!
Situational Functional Japanese Volume 1 Notes is a textbook that can be used by any beginner, even those that have not learned hiragana and katakana yet. Unlike most other beginner textbooks, this book does not focus on using as much Japanese as possible. Instead, it starts with a detailed introduction to Japanese (grammar, pronunciation and writing system), in which the basics and the mind set you need to learn Japanese are explained.
Do you have no idea where and how to start? How do I learn hiragana? What is a particle? If you struggle with these questions, this book will help you understand the basics step-by-step. After you are done with the introduction to Japanese, you continue with the 8 lessons in this book. The Japanese sentences introduced in the lessons are always supported with English explanations. While other textbooks do not have the same level of support to guide you, this book never leaves you hanging.
