This interactive CD-ROM program is a powerful tool for beginning learners of Japanese and is based on Part 1 of the popular Japanese: The Spoken Language textbook series. The two-disc set—available in both Macintosh and PC-compatible formats—presents JSL’s sound methodology in a rich multimedia environment. Innovative, fully interactive exercises, simulations, and reviews complement the textbook. The program contains 125 “Core Conversation” video clips, activities, helpful notes about language and culture, and student review and assessment, with native Japanese speakers providing conversation models throughout. Whether used in the classroom or for self-study, the CD-ROM program encourages students to complete the tasks necessary to communicate successfully in Japanese and makes learning both enjoyable and rewarding. A User’s Guide, included with the CD-ROMS (and also sold separately), offers clear, concise instructions for the program's most effective use. In addition, it provides comprehensive guidance for learners of Japanese and answers to some of their commonly asked questions. A Faculty Guide is also available to help instructors incorporate into their curricula the components of Japanese: The Spoken Language, Multimedia Collection—a grouping of new and previously published text, audio, video, and CD-ROM materials that together form a complete package for learning and teaching spoken Japanese at the beginning level. The institutional version of this product contains 10 CD-ROM sets, 10 User's Guides, and one Faculty Guide.
