Really great for Intermediates
February 11, 2011
Reviewer:  Haruko 

(Montreal, QC)

 - See all my reviews
This is the book we use in my Japanese class (intermediate level).
I really like the fact that the new vocabulary, grammar and kanji frequently reappeared a few lessons later. It allows us not to forget what we previously learnt, and at the same time to see those points in a different context.
I also like the structure of each lesson: text that you can read and/or listen to, comprehension questions, dialogues (often a formal one and its casual equivalent), dialogue pratice, culture notes, ... The fact that you can watch video online is a funny way to improve your listening skills.
Another thing is that the situation, the vocabulary,etc. are various and not stick only to business or to school, whick can be frustrating for adult learners like me. It is also a recent book so up to date regarding the culture.
The variety of subjects is also great.
To conclude I would say that this texbook is a great bridge between lower intermediate and lower advanced levels. I highly recommended it.
