Yookoso! An Invitation to Contemporary Japanese (Student Edition) Media Edition

Image of Yookoso! An Invitation to Contemporary Japanese (Student Edition) Media Edition
Author: Yasu-Hiko Tohsaku
Publisher: McGraw-Hill Humanities/Social Sciences/Languages (2003)
Binding: Hardcover, 592 pages
Summary:
Yookoso!, meaning welcome in Japanese, is the first volume of a two-volume series for beginning Japanese courses. Based on modern principles of second-language acquisition, it was the first beginning Japanese text to integrate the teaching of all four language skills (listening, speaking, reading, writing) and to be accompanied by a full complement of ancillary materials. Grammar is treated as a tool for developing the ability to communicate in Japanese, not as the focal point of the text. The illustration program (photographs, line drawings, realia) and the two-color, hardcover format is unique in this field, providing an attractive context for language learning.
