Lastly, if you are going further in Japanese and want to learn some kanji, you will need to look at the back of the book for each chapter's kanji list. They are organized by chapter but are not included in the chapters themselves, which I find strange and annoying, and they may or may not be vocab words from that chapter.

Eri Banno, Yutaka Ohno, Yoko Sakane, Chikako Shinagawa, Kyoko Tokashiki. The textbook is divided into two volumes, containing 23 lessons focusing on Japanese grammar, vocabulary, and kanji Publication history.

Genki outlines in 23 structured lessons all the fundamentals of the Japanese language. Abundantly illustrated and containing a wide variety of exercises, Genki is sure to bring vigor to your classroom! Though primarily meant for use in college-level classes, it is also a good guide for independent learners and is a nice resource book for teachers of Japanese. Genki's authors teach at Kansai Gaidai University, which hosts the largest number of North American students spending their junior year in Japan.

This is probably the most commonly used Japanese textbook on the market for college students, and it has earned that status. The organization is good within each chapter, things come in reasonable chunks (vocab, grammar or phrases), and the end-of-chapter exercises are enough to keep you busy if you choose not to buy the workbook (which you should buy if you are taking a class!) My only complaint was the fact that chapters have themes that really don't fit with their content -- barbecue, for instance, is a chapter, and really does not focus on that. Also, words like "this semester" and "last semester" may well be found in different chapters (true example). Lastly, if you are going further in Japanese and want to learn some kanji, you will need to look at the back of the book for each chapter's kanji list. They are organized by chapter but are not included in the chapters themselves, which I find strange and annoying, and they may or may not be vocab words from that chapter. The question word "what," for instance, is randomly placed and learned much later than is useful, even though it is relatively easy to write.

If you are taking a class that uses this book: Buy it. Used or new shouldn't matter, but familiarize yourself with its organization and read all the grammar sections carefully. Some situations (like using a noun where an adjective is commonly used in a particular structure) are written but easy to miss if you skim.

If you are not taking a class but want to learn Japanese: You might or might not find this a good match. If you memorize quickly and forget quickly, forget it. If you want things in context so they have somewhere to stick in your brain, forget it. It's really formatted for a formal classroom setting.

I'm taking Japanese at college and this was the text book that was required. I'm very happy with it. The book explains grammar very well and the pace moves just fast enough so that my skills in the language are progressing but I don't feel lost. It does not go too much into kanji (there are some pages in the back that correspond to the lessons), but if you are just learning Japanese and have no prior experience with an Asian language- that is a very helpful feature. There is an activity workbook that goes along with the text book and it has grammar and writing exercises and kanji practice pages in the back. You don't actually need the workbook to use the text book, but I definitely recommend it for the extra practice it gives with the lessons.

The beginning of the book focuses a lot on speaking in the polite form (like if you were to speak Japanese to a teacher, stranger, acquaintance...) by using phrases such as '''"masu" and ''''"masen" at the end of verbs and '"desu" and ''''''' "jaarimasen" meaning "it is" or "it is not", as well as the past tenses of the polite forms. The second half of the book focuses on the cordial or familiar (what you use to speak with close friends, family...). This book also teaches the te-form ending (you cannot use "masu" '''or '''"masen" with a verb in the middle of the sentence, so you use the te-form). It also teaches"teimasu"'''' ending (both the te-form and the masu form together to indicate that the action is happening at the instant or that a change of action has occurred). For example: "ima ko-hi wo nondeimasu'''''''''''''" means "I am drinking coffee right now". So the book focuses on all of the three ways of writing in Japanese- hiragana (used for Japanese words that do not have a kanji and for the particles), katakana (used for foreign words to give them a Japanese sound such as coffee - ko-hi) and some kanji characters.

I'm sorry if I have made any mistakes with my Japanese sentences (I'm still a beginner with learning the language), but I wanted to try to explain this as best I could because if you already understand most of what I'm writing about - then you probably need the Genki 2 book. If this is all new material to you, then this book is a great way to learn the basics and grammar of Japanese. I also apologize because the amazon site will not let me write the japanese characters.

So, I would definitely recommend the Genki textbook to anyone trying to learn Japanese (don't waste your money like I did trying to learn on Rosetta Stone and computer programs!). My 14 year old sister bought the same book to learn Japanese also, so it's a textbook that can work for a lot of different age groups (I wouldn't go any lower than High School though- but it depends on the motivation of the student). Good luck with your Japanese studies!

Very good source for learning Japanese as I am sure you have heard. Make sure you get the newest edition, there isn't many differences just a few little changes in a couple words. It has Kana charts in it so you can begin right with this book. Although it would help to have a little background in how Japanese works. But like any resource make sure you use more than one. A fine addition to your collection here.

In my experience studying Japanse, both in college and self-directed, I've owned around a dozen different "course" texts. The Genki series is by far the best I've seen. Grammar, vocabulary, and kanji are all included in the text. The pacing is very good and I really appreciated the complete dependence on kana and kanji instead of romaji (a crutch that will only slow you down in the long run). I also recommend the workbook as a supplement although the main text does contain some good review exercises.

The only downside I found is the ultimate cost of the audio portion (sold seperately). The "student" edition, while affordable, only includes the vocabulary from the main text, the dialogues from the main text, and the workbook exercises. It did not include the exercises from the main text, which seems strange to me.

So far so good, the explanations for concepts and technical explanations are very clear. I have been teaching myself Japanese in preparation for my move, and I have slowly been able to begin recognizing words, and I am reading more or less at a kindergarten level and its only been about a month and a half all thanks to this book. Genki is money well spent.

This was my first textbook in the Japanese language. I bought it again to keep up with practice. There are some grammar patterns that it doesn't cover as well as other texts, but then there are some it covers better. I supplement with the textbook Youkoso, another great beginner text.

Genki is an excellent textbook, one that I used as a student in college. Now, being a tutor, I use Genki textbooks to teach my students. It is an excellent beginner's textbook and I encourage first-time learners to pick up this textbook.
