The complete package for teachers and students

With its ground-breaking approach to Intercultural Language Learning (IcLL), this three level series provides a comprehensive course for teachers and students beginning Japanese in secondary school. 


Student Books

Build skills and confidence
  • Explicit use of IcLL principles such as analysing, noticing, making connections and reflecting on one's own and others' language(s) and culture(s) provide rich and meaningful learning.
  • Script (hiragana and kanji) is introduced in purposeful and meaningful contexts. Hiragana is introduced progressively so that students learn to read and write quickly and confidently.
  • The range of text types provides opportunities to develop students' literacy skills.
