Synopsis:

Includes Audio CD.

Beginners rejoice! Here's the first book in a new three-volume Japanese language learning series focused on U.S. high school students, starting at the beginner level and continuing through the AP Japanese exam's level of language competency. And independent learners too will find it a dynamic way to master the Japanese language!

With an engaging time-travel adventure storyline, manga-style story pages and a free web-based multimedia resource, Beginning Japanese was written by Japanese language teachers specifically to grab—and maintain—the interest of the learner. The narrative story follows the life of Kiara, an exchange student, Ben and Kenichi who get caught in a storm and end up in Tomo's time machine, through which they visit firsthand various historical and famous events, places and people. These historical and cultural experiences are made even more real for the learner through dialogues, images and CD-ROM audio and video files.
