みんなの日本語2 Minna no nihongo II textbookMinna no nihongo II is good at packing a lot of Japanese into a small space! If possible, you should get both the English and Japanese versions, however, since they both depend on each other. It’s not the most fantastic Japanese book ever, but it’s great for a class, or for some other guided instruction. Much better than any American textbooks I’ve seen.
Every chapter starts with vocabulary, then a skit using the new words, as well as some good examples and exercises. The illustrations are cute. Also, the appendices are very useful in a pinch.
Then read this book. For those in the know, this book series are used at actual Japanese universities for a reason: they work. When I went to Okinawa Japan, I studied from this 25-lesson book and the English translation piece. If you want something that will give you a solid commmand of the language, then get this, the Minna no Nihongo worksheets and the translations. I would just go through this book with a Japanese friend to supplement the CDs (warning they’re expensive).
You will be exploring life through the eyes of Mike Smith as he continues to work for his Japanese company and continues to make friends. There is a lot a humor in the lessons that make this an interesting self study piece. It is probably better for a class room, but I would use this to review what I know from time to time. It will go over high beginner to low intermediate Japanese grammatical forms and introduce you to about a thousand new vocabulary words. From there you are expected to be able to command the language at a conversational level.
Want to pass the JLPT level N4 and first portion of N3? Pick this book up along with some Kanzen Master books and you’re good to go. You’re words will flow like fluid with enough pratice.
