Series Title: Grammar Workbooks
Description:

Intermediate Japanese is designed for learners who have achieved a basic
proficiency and wish to progress to more complex language. Each unit
combines clear, concise grammar explanations with examples and exercises
to help build confidence and fluency.

The book is divided into two parts. Part One outlines fundamental
components of Japanese including particles, question words, verb types and
tense while Part Two builds on this foundation by introducing grammatical
patterns organised by the task they achieve.

Features include:

-clear, accessible format
-jargon-free explanations of grammar
-many useful and culturally relevant examples
-abundant exercises with full answer key
-detailed index of grammar patterns.

Intermediate Japanese reviews the principal elements presented in its sister
volume, Basic Japanese, and introduces more complicated structures.
Suitable for both classroom use and the independent learner, the two books
form a compendium of the essentials of Japanese grammar.
