Author: Naomi Hirano-omizo, Hiromi Peterson
Publisher: Cheng & Tsui (2007)
Binding: Paperback, 394 pages
Summary:
Adventures in Japanese Level 1 is the first student textbook in this series for students of Japanese as a foreign language. It introduces basic Japanese through a series of everyday situations with which students are familiar, such as introductions, taking class attendance, and inviting a friend over. Hiragana and katakana are introduced gradually, and 17 basic kanji are also taught. Widely adopted at junior and senior high schools across the U.S. because of its effectiveness, Adventures in Japanese is a user-friendly but comprehensive course that incorporates textbooks, student workbooks, kana workbooks and flashcards, teacher’s handbooks and audio CDs for a complete and enjoyable introduction to the Japanese language. The title of the series implies fun, and the books’ lively illustrations and vivid explanations make language learning enjoyable for students. Speaking, listening, reading and writing are equally stressed throughout, and Cultural Notes make important points about Japanese culture and language use. A Fun Corner--with various culturally related activities from making onigiri (riceballs) to learning Japanese songs--increases the sense of exploration and adventure, and a Japanese Culture Corner feature provides cultural topics for students to explore in depth and compare with their own culture.

Author: Wang Shousheng
Publisher: New World Press
Binding: Hardcover, 391pages
Summary:
This four-volume series was compiled by the State Administration for Traditional Chinese Medicine specially for foreign students studying traditional Chinese medicine. It draws on the contents of the fourth and fifth editions of the national textbooks used by full-time colleges of traditional Chinese medicine while taking cultural differences into consideration, as well as the fact that foreign students are only allotted a relatively short time for classroom studies. The depth and range of the contents, and the scientific and ideological level of the textbooks have been carefully considered. Such efforts have been made to shorten and simplify the contents while preserving the essence of traditional Chinese medicine and its systematic theories. Volume I covers the history, basic theory and diagnosis of traditional Chinese medicine. Volume II deals with pharmacy and the science of traditional Chinese prescriptions, while Volume III covers traditional Chinese internal medicine and the scientific theories of acupuncture and moxibustion.
