How can the Japanese for Busy People series help you learn Japanese?
Japanese for Busy People is, as the title suggests, a concise course for 'busy' students who want to learn natural, spoken Japanese as effectively as possible in a limited amount of time. Three main texts-Japanese for Busy People I, Japanese for Busy People II, and Japanese for Busy People Ill-with related workbooks, cassette tapes, CDs, teacher's manuals, and videos make up this fully integrated three-level series. At each level, enough vocabulary and grammar has been provided to enable the learner to communicate in uncomplicated adult language without having to memorize excessive amounts of vocabulary and language patterns that are not immediately useful. All components of the Japanese for Busy People series have been prepared under the guidance of a working group of experienced Japanese language instructors who reviewed and tested the material in an authentic classroom environment.
Japanese for Busy People Ill: The Workbook is the ideal resource for any student who wishes to improve speaking, listening, reading, and writing skills in Japanese. This collection of exercises and activities has been developed to provide practice for sentence patterns presented in both the Revised Edition and Kana Version of Japanese for Busy People Ill. The workbook can be used both in the classroom as a supplement for introducing or reviewing lessons, and outside the classroom for homework and review. When coordinated with the exercises and quizzes in the main textbook, this workbook should enable learners to improve their command of basic Japanese in a relatively short time.
The fully illustrated Workbook includes:
'Accuracy Practice' - Drills, exercises, and discourse training.
'Fluency Practice' - Listening, role-playing, and discussion training.
'Reading Practice' - 20 interesting articles each with a full English translation.
Japanese for Busy People Ill: Workbook Tapes (available separately) has been specially designed to support this workbook.
THE ASSOCIATION FOR JAPANESE-LANGUATE TEACHING (AJALT) has been recognized as a nonprofit organization by the Ministry of Education since 1997. It was established to meet the practical needs of people who are not necessarily specialists on Japan but who wish to communicate effectively in Japanese. In 1992 the Association was awarded the Japan Foundation Special Prize.
How I would write a Japanese learning book- Book 0 Hiragana, Katana and pronounciation- lots of it.
Book 1- Verbs, simple nouns (to express the verbs) and a few select particles- expressed in Kanji (all possible)- no expectation of learning those but it good to get the experience , kana and furigana just about everything you could possibly need. Verbs in both plain and polite form with lots of testing.
Book 2- Adjectives, wide range of nouns and more verb practice.
Book 3- Now fully formed expressions with the special adverbs with some conjugation with the rules of verb conjugation clearly spelt out- as you know the polite and plain it quite straightforward. Only everyday langauge and lots of testing. If language level is sufficient, start with practice and lead to roleplay with alternate scenarios.
The kanji-reference in the end does not (if i remember correctly) include kanji learned in japanese for busy people 1 & 2, which IMO is a problem.
(correction: it seems they are included, i remembered wrong.)
Even if it has its problems it's not too bad. Would recommend it for self-study, if it fits your level (past JLPT4, maybe studying for JLPT3).
