Shelves: reference-and-other Sorry! Sorry about that. If you just want to see a book review, scroll down past the next few paragraphs. It just so happened that I had a lot of time, and I gravitated toward this particular way of spending my time because I enjoy learning languages and this was something that I could do and get a real, meaningful, concrete skill out of. In terms of why Japanese in particular, I chose this language because I had heard it was very similar to Korean which I already know , so I figured it would be the least effort to learn. Just like anything else, language learning just takes lots of time, I think. The real review starts here Which I guess brings us to Genki. Genki, as mentioned above, is the most popular Japanese textbook recommendation for English speakers. Each chapter has a dialogue, a vocabulary list, a handful of grammar points, practice exercises, and some smaller sections that may talk about Japanese culture or give you some extra, more situational vocabulary. The grammar lessons are fantastic.

The vocabulary has also been updated with more modern and useful vocabulary. The grammar points presented in the volume are the same, though the explanations have been made even easier to understand. This audio disc can be used with any music player.

Please note that this book does not include any PDF you can download or an online version access. All kanji have readings and English translations of the dialogs are available. This is the second edition of one of the highly regarded textbooks on the Japanese language: Genki 1: An Integrated Course in Elementary Japanese.

Lastly, audio aids which were previously sold separately, have been included on an mp3 audio CD.

Emphasis has been placed on balancing accuracy, fluency, and complexity. This new part is designed to enhance students knowledge of Japan through information on Japanese culture and daily life. The vocabulary has also been updated with more modern and useful vocabulary. The grammar points presented in the volume are the same, though the explanations have been made even easier to understand.

This audio disc can be used with any music player. Please note that this book does not include any PDF you can download or an online version access. All kanji have readings and English translations of the dialogs are available. Assuming you keep up with the grammar lessons and learn the kanji required, the practice exercises in the Reading and Writing section are a powerful tool.

Armed with knowledge, you get a chance to play with the language in a more creative way than in the grammar section. Many exercises are similar to those in the rest of the book. Match this with that. Fill in the blank, etc. But there are a few which shine especially bright. There's a katakana word search on page When you're learning how to read kana, this is a great way to scan for characters and identify them.

Going in different directions helps loosen up that brain. There's no mention of radicals, but the Genki textbook does introduce the concept with a "kanji combination" exercise.

Genki: An Integrated Course in Elementary Japanese - Wikipedia

You're presented a certain number of kanji and told to combine them to create new ones. This tests your kanji knowledge and encourages you to research and make connections. Maps and charts return in this section. But this time you're writing full sentences to describe actions or information in your own words.

Some of the best exercises are the reading comprehension. When you start learning Japanese, reading is generally a waste of time. You don't know enough kanji and grammar, so you'll be constantly pausing to look up concepts you don't know.

But if you've been keeping up with the lessons, the reading practice presented will only use Japanese you know. Not only is the reading itself wonderful practice. You're asked questions based on the passages. Having to intake, process, and output all in Japanese is great experience and hard to find as a beginner.

The CDs add listening and speaking practice to the mix. All the reading comprehension in these sections have corresponding audio files. Similar to this are open-ended writing assignments that challenge your ability to form sentences and encourage self-expression. Things like: You are organizing a party. Write a flyer about the party.

Be sure to include: what kind of party it is, what time it starts, where it is held, what to bring, how to get there, and so on. Language learning gets fun when you can express yourself properly.

And getting small chances to do this early on is valuable. This is a self-guided section. Self-learners with low motivation will have trouble. But those that push through and do the work will get the most out of it. Indexes We're finally at the end of the textbook.

And the end of a textbook means indexes! Beautiful indexes full of vocabulary. If you're looking for words to put into an SRS flashcard deck, here they are. A nice feature of both is the way it indicates your position in the index. There's a hiragana syllabary above the Japanese-English index and an alphabet above the English-Japanese index.

Genki 1: An Integrated Course in Elementary Japanese 1

Both are grayed out except for the particular letter or character covered on the page. This is a minor feature but one that gives a more modern feel to the analog practice of looking things up in a book. The entries of the Japanese-English index are kana, kanji, English, and section marker.

There's a section legend at the beginning of the index to let you know which symbols represent which section. The English Japanese index is similar, with the major exception being the order of the entries. In this case it's English, kana, kanji, and section marker. Map of Japan This is exactly as the name describes. A map of Japan with each prefecture listed in kanji. There are some pictures too, which are okay for tiny black and white pictures printed in a textbook. Could be a useful tool if you're stuck on an airplane without internet access or something.

Otherwise, check online for better maps with better features. Numbers Just when you think this textbook is out of material, it surprises you. The Numbers chart is handy, though incomplete. Japanese has a ton of counters that change the reading of the number depending on what you're counting.

This chart tells you how to render one through ten for 37 different categories of things. For those confused by counters, seeing them all lined up in chart form could help break the concept down into more understandable pieces.

Verb Conjugation Chart The Genki textbook gives you one final gift before signing off, a verb conjugation chart. Like the numbers chart, this is super helpful but even more useful.

For those struggling with verb conjugation, this chart lines everything up for easy study. It doesn't provide every verb conjugation. Only those introduced in this book.

But for a beginner these are great foundational conjugations to practice. Trying to tackle the entirety of conjugations at once is too much. Master these and you'll have an easier time with basic conversation.

From there, you'll be more than able to tackle the conjugations in the Genki 2 textbook. The Genki Textbook Look and Feel The physical makeup of the Genki textbook may seem trivial, but it's a lot of little things that impact learning in their own way. Your first impression of the textbook will probably be its nice glossy cover. When you pick it up, it feels heavy for a paperback.

Considering the density of information inside, the weight is welcome. The cover design is okay. It's close to clean and modern, but still feels early s. Inside is a nice mix of fonts, serif fonts being the most dominant. It's academic, but other font styles paired with illustrations let you know the learning will be fun.
