Description:

"Hiyaku: An Intermediate Japanese Course" provides a progressive

practicing all four language skills. Hiyaku provides content-based instruction,
with authentic and semi-authentic dialogues and readings, all carefully
selected to instruct and inspire students as they learn Japanese.

Key features of the textbook include:

-highly structured chapters, beginning with warm-up exercises followed by
focused practice of each of the four skills

-gradual introduction to increasingly authentic materials

-content taken from original Japanese sources such as books, TV programs,
magazines, newspapers and websites

-extensive audio material provided as free MP3 files on a companion website

-instructor’s materials, including PowerPoint files provided through the
companion website: http://www.routledge.com/cw/eguchi/

Hiyaku does not simply teach language and basic cultural points: it also
helps students gain a holistic understanding of Japanese society and history,
and provides the necessary foundation for the advanced study of Japan and
its language.
