Summary: This proficiency-oriented introductory Japanese program emphasizes practical communication, the development of all four language skills, student interaction, and cultural awareness. Nakama 1 consists of 12 chapters, and Nakama 2 consists of a review chapter, plus 10 additional chapters. Both volumes feature thematically organized chapters that focus on high-frequency communicative situations and introduce students to the Japanese language and its three writing system mores: hiragana, katakana, and kanji.

  • Hiragana (in Chapters 1-3 of Nakama 1) and katakana (in Chapters 4-6 of Nakama 1) are introduced through unique mnemonic devices that help students learn the characters. Ninety kanji characters are introduced in Chapters 7-12 of Nakama 1, and approximately 290 Kanji are presented in Chapters 1-10 of Nakama 2, with stroke-by-stroke writing techniques.
  • A series of specially created manga precede each chapter dialogue and serve as visual advanced organizers.
  • Chapter dialogues present a lively, continuous story line that illustrate typical daily events in Japanese life and provide a realistic context in which to learn vocabulary and grammatical structures.
  • Exercises progress from directed practice to a wide range of open-ended communicative activities that emphasize pair and group work.
  • Reading, writing, and speaking strategies are presented and practiced throughout the program to help develop students' language proficiency.
  • The Houghton Mifflin Japanese Web Site provides additional materials for students and instructors, including links to relevant Internet sites and to a text-specific site developed by the co-authors, Kazumi Hatasa and Yukiko Abe Hatasa. less
