Book types

With Kanzen Master series, you'll just need four books to get all the knowledge you need to pass the JLPT N4 exam. But, there are no less than five books for all the next levels of the Japanese Language Proficiency Test. Each book focuses on a specific part of Japanese learning: grammar, vocabulary, listening comprehension, kanji and reading comprehension.



These Japanese grammar books aim at cultivating the grammar needed for every level of the Japanese Language Proficiency Test. You will learn the grammatical rules needed to pass the exam in two phases: First, learning the grammar and then detailed explanations on the meaning and functions of these forms.



These Japanese vocabulary books are made for learning the vocabulary needed for every level of the JLPT. They are divided in two parts: Practical Training and Mock Test. The Practical Training section (or Jitsuryoku Yoseihen) helps you study vocabulary in realistic situations and themes. Mock tests are in the same format as in the JLPT exam.



These books show the student how to use and read all kanji required for every level of the Japanese Language Proficiency Test with an emphasis on practice. Practicing helps the learner to gain necessary knowledge of kanji and identify situations where these characters are used in three simple steps. This allows the learner to become familiar with kanji easily.


Reading Comprehension

These Japanese books cover various important points such as comparisons, rephrasing, metaphors and interrogative sentences. In each chapter, the learner is invited to grasp a long-form text in Japanese. For this part, a large variety of good quality content has been selected by the authors. For example, advertisements, informational publications, business documents or pamphlets.


Listening Comprehension

These books help the learner improve their listening comprehension by using three different methods: Mondai Shokai provides an overview of the questions forms and how to solve them. Jitsuryoku Yoseihen examines the different types of questions separately, it also introduces the skills necessary to understand those questions, and Mogi Shiken which contains a mock test to confirm the ability of the learner.
