A reading comprehension text that can be used right from the start of learning Japanese, this book covers a wide variety of topics in various formats, and simple exercises are also included to confirm the learner's level of comprehension.

A workbook that, through writing using the vocabulary and grammatical items found in Minna no Nihongo Shokyu I Second Edition Main Text, allows the learner to firmly grasp what has been studied. The series also includes books on reading and listening comprehension and kanji learning, as well as audio materials. The book comes with a translation (English, Chinese, Korean and Vietnamese) of any vocabulary used in the book but not found in the Main Text. Although both books have a section dedicated to Hiragana and Katakana in their introduction, those two syllabaries should have been mastered before tackling the content of the lessons itself.Here is a kanji workbook conforming to the kanji and vocabulary found in Minna no Nihongo Shokyu I Second Edition Main Text. Please go to " User Registration" in the bar above to register your name, e-mail address and postal address. The series is pretty established (like more than 20 years ago), but doesn’t mean it will be better than Genki. And for learners without a CD player, an App is available to hear the audio content on smartphones or tablets.

Ich hatte Minna no Nihonga in meinen ersten 2 Semestern an der Uni, weil unsere Dozentin in der Zeit dachte, dass es für den Unterricht am optimalsten ist. Some parts are a little boring though as it is aimed towards business people and the plays are hilarious. With illustrations, easy-to-understand charts, and diagrams, the book is visually stimulating, allowing the learner to more easily learn and reinforce beginner-level Japanese. It's not until the te-form is discussed that the groups the verbs belong to are indicated, so all lists in my copy have the dictionary forms scribbled next to them.

There are a total of four textbooks, as many workbooks, and dozens of more specialized books in the series, making it perfect for those who want to complete a comprehensive study of the Japanese language. A third volume in the series for the Chukyu (Intermediate) level goes by the name An Integrated Approach to Intermediate Japanese without bearing the name Genki.

The content is nearly the same and when you add the additional workbook to Genki you have a ton, really a ton of content you can practice with. I take physical notes on the vocab and also start running them through Anki several days before I attempt to read the lesson. This comprehensive set of textbooks and workbooks is perfect for anyone looking to learn the basics of the Japanese language. The books cover all the essential grammar points and vocabulary you need to know at each level, so they’re perfect for self-study or use in a classroom setting.

It's a little annoying that the set is divided into four books that you constantly have to switch between, but you'll get used to that as well. In that sense, Genki is more adapted to beginners who want to self-study while Minna no Nihongo is more immersive from the start and requires more from the learners. For teachers: At 「みんなの日本語倶楽部」 ("Minna no Nihongo Club"), you can see details of the series, useful content for classes, and articles on how to use the books. There are up to 8 different workbooks for Minna no Nihongo and an additional textbook focusing on Kanji characters only.

There is also a Tokini Andy discord channel so if you’re interested in doing some of the practice exercises from the book you can do them there, and he also makes Patreon content with listening exercises (although I’ve found the free content to be plenty! Please use these CDs, along with the CD accompanying the Main Text (containing the Conversations and Exercises found in the main texts), for instruction in class and for student practice. So far, though, I do like the layout of MNN as a book to embed what I’ve learned more firmly in my mind. Make sure you have a CD player or you find the soundcloud link for the audio tasks, as they really help with the listening abilities. Thankfully (probably due to student attrition), the offerings for the intermediate levels are somewhat less profuse.It does not teach you many fundamental basic Japanese structure and start your journey with polite langauge. On page 2 of each chapter, there are review questions, and comprehensive review question sections are set after so many chapters.
