In the Japanese Edition, grammatical explanation and terminology as well as selected example sentences (or parts of sentences) are translated on the left page. On the right page, exercise instuctions are translated. There is a modest amount of content adaptation, typically consisting of additional explanation or examples for grammar which is identified as a weak spot for Japanese learners. As the book is for sale in in the locally-produced EFL materials section of Japanese bookstores, the dimensions of the book have been reduced. The extent remains the same as in the original.
