But I soon learned the new text (volume 2 of this series) was better. The dialogue's create a good introduction to the grammar points within each chapter.

After fifteen printings, the Learn Japanese: College Text series has been substantially revised. The incorporated revisions grew out of the authors' decade and more of classroom experience. Revisions were also made in accordance with recommendations proposed by instructors who have used the Learn Japanese series. The new edition, which reflects recent trends in language teaching, continues to emphasize an integrated approach in which speaking, hearing, reading, and writing Japanese all contribute to the language learning process.

- The most significant improvement is the addition of Culture Notes to help clarify the sociolinguistic context in which the language is used. Since Japanese modes of communication are highly situational, the student of Japanese needs to be made aware of the different contexts in which speakers interact. Culture Notes, used in conjunction with Grammar Notes, Dialogs, and Useful Expressions, show how an understanding of cultural values and human relationships can enhance the student's mastery of language skills.- A new approach to language learning is used throughout the revised edition. The new sociolinguistic approach (which encourages the "generation of discourse") is integrated with the original pattern approach (which encourages the "generation of sentences").- Many components of the first edition, such as Sentence Patterns, Grammar Notes, and Reviews, have been revised and/or rearranged. The result is a clearer, more natural, and more functional presentation of the Japanese language.

The four volumes of Learn Japanese: New College Text were prepared by the Asian Division of the University of Maryland University College and are published by the University of Hawaii Press.

I really like this book! I've lived in Japan for 3 1/2 years now and find this book to be very accurate in conversation. A lot of the things I find in the book are the same things I hear when I listen to or engage in conversations with my Japanese friends. It's a great book. It's definitely not for beginners (though I am a beginner myself), but you must know katakana and hiragana and basic verb conjugation to get anything out of it. The best part about this book is the drill section. At first I was confused with the structure of the book, but I realized you have to read each chapter from the beginning because they build on each other. I have about 20 books on Japanese (especially being that this is not a popular language to study in America, never the less the entire world), but I find this book to be very helpful, especially with the explanations. Don't bother buying it for $12.00. I got mine used for $0.01 +$3.95 SH. I really recommend this book to compliment your studies, but not book will help you become fluent. Unlike French or Spanish or Portuguese, you really must live here in order to learn the language. Japanese is more about "thinking" the way the culture thinks so you can speak like them....a very complex and historical language I must say!

This is the text that I used at university when I first studied Japanese. I was happy to see that it is still available for me to use in my review of this wonderful language.

I really like this book. But then again I have a really good instructor that explains the grammar really well, and converts it into simple terms that anyone can understand. The exercises don't have answer to them, however, if you have a good instructor he/she should be able to go over the exercises with you. What I did like the about the book was that there was English translations of the conversations in the back. Personally, from experience, it's better to learn a language from a good instructor. It's really difficult to learn it on your own, especially Japanese.

I am surprised by the many negative reviews of the LEARN JAPANESE series. My only explanation is that students look only at the first book, or first few chapters and then get discouraged. In order to appreciate this book, one needs to look at the entire 4-volume series. I have worked through all 4 books and als through Genki Vol.1 and Genki Vol.2 and the following brief review is based on my experience with these.

Please see my review of LEARN JAPANESE Volume 1 for a detailed comparison of this series with the newer and very popular Genki series. Genki is no doubt a great book too, it comes with funny cartoons, more every-day vocabulary (which you could easily look up in a dictionary), a CD and web support. Nevertheless, the old-fashioned LEARN JAPANESE is also an excellent text book and will bring you to about the same level of language competency.

Volume 1 was written entirely in romanization, with the dialogs given in kana only in the Appendix. Volume 2, 3 and 4 have the dialogs and exercises in kana, but a romanization and translation can be found in the end of this book for self-control. The vocabulary and grammar sections are in romanization. In my opinion this is a GOOD THING! Yes, your friends who study from Genki will be more advanced at this stage, but at the end of a typical 2-year college course you will both be at the same level (350 kanjis total), no matter if you used LEARN JAPANESE (which starts very gentle but then accelerates towards the end) or GENKI, which distributes the kanji more evenly.

One of the advantages of the delayed introduction is that you can concentrate better on the forms and structure of this strange and peculiar language without burdening your memory. The other advantage is, that after the first semester you may decide that Japanese is not quite "your thing" and take up some other course. In that case you will not have wasted countless time with useless signs and symbols.

This is absolutely the worst language textbook I have ever used-and I cannot overstate that. It is poorly written and the choice of language is outdated and sometimes inappropriate for the purpose given.
This book relies upon sentence structuring to teach language. A typical student is not trying to learn linguistics, but rather how to communicate. This book does not do that. On top of that, the book fails to cite what the abbreviations used in the book mean. I'm not a linguist. I can only guess at what they are try to say by "PM,"E" etc.
The book has dialogue that uses words such as "watakushi" rather than "watashi." I have been told by native Japanese speakers that the use is incorrect in the context.
The book inexplicably switches between using english instructions and Japanese instructions. There is no dictionary in the back of the book, nor instructions on how to use the book itself.
As a support to my Japanese language class, I do not feel like I can rely upon this text to reinforce what I learn in class. If anything, it confuses what I have learned. I simply don't understand why otherwise credible Japanese classes use this book. It is difficult to use, especially in contrast to the Japanese for Busy People series. Learn Japanese New College Text II should be taken out of print. Sensei, please don't choose this book.
