Tobira: Beginning Japanese – 1: Workbook 1

Product Description
$18.99 USD
Maximum quantity available reached.

This is a workbook designed to be used in conjunction with the incredibly popular Tobira Beginning Japanese, an entry-level addition to the acclaimed Tobira series. The aim of this excellent workbook is to allow learners the opportunity to practice and reinforce the comprehensive introduction of everyday Japanese expressions, vocabulary, grammar, phonetics, and even some useful kanji that they are learning in the main textbook.

The workbook starts with some very fundamental instructions —  all in English — that are neither judgmental nor patronizing (like you can get with other textbooks) on how to write hiragana, with lots of chances to practice that continue throughout the book. 

The first couple of chapters focus on hiragana and katakana, but by chapter 3, you are already being introduced to kanji. However, the most common praise we hear of the Tobira series is how motivating the books are, and this workbook is no exception. So, even though it seems like the book is suddenly throwing you in the deep end, the introduction to kanji feels natural and non-forced, so you can enter the more difficult realm of Japanese learning with no sense of feeling overwhelmed. 

Each unit has a reading practice section that corresponds to the “Reading” segments of Tobira I. These segments feature engaging topics with a focus on a content-based learning approach. You can read the passages from the main textbook, and then write your answers in this workbook. 

There is also a writing practice section in every unit, which provides a space to practice writing full compositions, expanding on content presented in the reading practice. You can use the grammar, vocabulary, and kanji learned for that lesson in this practice section – actually putting to use what you have learned, rather than just putting it into the back of your mind.

There is a reason why in the comments section for the Tobira series we see OMG Japan customers writing things like, “I want to thank the authors of this amazing book for motivating people like me”. This is a first-rate learning tool for beginner-level students that can be used in a classroom setting or for self-study. If you want to start your Japanese study but are not sure how, you will not regret getting this workbook and the accompanying main text.
