Welcome to White Rabbit Japan!
Situational Functional Japanese Volume 2 Notes picks up where volume 1 ends and starts with lesson 9. In spite of the fact that many other textbooks use as little English as humanly possible, this series goes the complete opposite route and uses English wherever necessary. Especially the grammar section has very detailed English explanations, many examples and a do and don't section that covers common mistakes. Furthermore, the conversation notes section gives you insight into Japanese culture and goes far beyond a simple cultural explanation of the situation in the model conversation.
