ISBN: 0070722919
Release Date: 1993
Genre: Language Arts & Disciplines

Yookoso! is the first volume of a two-volume series for beginning and intermediate Japanese. Employing an eclectic approach based on modern principles of second language acquisition, it is the first beginning Japanese text to integrate the teaching of all four linguistic skills. Each chapter contains listening, speaking, reading, and writing exercises of various types. All Japanese-language material after the introductory section is written in natural kanamajiri style with furigana, and 175 kanji are presented for active master. Grammar is treated as a tool for developing communication skills, not as the focal point of the text, and the chapters are organized in a way that accommodates many different teaching and learning styles. Brief English descriptions of contemporary and traditional Japanese culture, each related to the theme of the chapter, provide a context for language learning, and the illustrations, including photographs, line drawings, and realia, enhance student interest and serve as starting points for classroom exercises. In addition Yookoso! is unique in having a full set of ancillary materials: audio and video tapes, a student workbook and laboratory manual, software (to be announced), and an instructor's manual with test bank and tapescript.

LSC Yookoso Getting Started with Contemporary Japanese

Author: Yasu-Hiko Tohsaku
Publisher: McGraw-Hill Humanities/Social Sciences/Languages
ISBN: 007290240X
Release Date: 1997-12-01
Genre: Computers

The First Edition of Yookoso!: An Invitation to Contemporary Japanese was warmly and enthusiastically received by Japanese language instructors not only in North America, but also abroad. The preliminary chapters entitled "Getting Started" were a First Edition feature that many instructors and students found especially useful and effective for their introductory Japanese courses. In response to this positive response, we have revised and expanded these preliminary chapters as a primer to introduce learners to the Japanese language, providing them with a basic foundation for learning Japanese. Yookoso!: Getting Started with Japanese has been developed according to two basic premises: (1) proficient communication in the second language is the goal of foreign language instruction, and (2) the primary function of language is to allow people to communicate, interact, and negotiate meaning. Yookoso!: Getting Started with Japanese provides a starting point for oral and written communication and helps students to develop proficiency in the four language skills of listening, speaking, reading, and writing, as well as in cultural awareness. With this emphasis on interaction in the classroom, students enjoy learning Japanese. The Yookoso! materials and approach have been extensively tested with beginning students of Japanese. In our experience, students become proficient in Japanese more quickly using the Yookoso! approach. The flexible framework of the Yookoso! materials accommodates various approaches to language teaching and different learning styles.
