That book you linked is only going to teach him Kanji, not vocabulary and grammar. A well respected first step would be the Genki series. There are 2 series and both series have a main textbook and a workbook.

No, ho un maestro (3h/settimana), ma buona parte del lavoro è soprattutto calligrafia e memorizzazione: di fatto si potrebbe anche fare da autodidatta immagino. Il testo che usiamo è questo

Entrambi si trovano facilmente in PDF se vi interessa!

I am not sure if this answer your question but you are looking for this workbook (Genki I Workbook - 2000). I own both, I can confirm.

The second edition of the workbook is from 2011.

u/DraftYeti5608 · 3 pointsr/LearnJapanese

In regards to the cost it will be cheaper to order it from Japan, here is the textbook and the workbook it should be about £50 for both including shipping.

u/Phailadork · 3 pointsr/LearnJapanese

Yeah I've viewed that wiki before and done research I guess I'm just stupid. And it's more so that I can only afford 1 thing so I want to make absolutely sure that it's the right thing for me. From what I'm getting, get a Genki book because it teaches you a lot more? The question then is... this one or this one? Or are they both necessary? Both the same thing? etc.

They both say second edition which is kinda throwing me off I guess.

u/dentinacar · 3 pointsr/LearnJapanese

Textbook part 1 This is the main textbook that you need, includes the mp3 cd.

Optional workbook part 1 Extra practice for the textbook.

Textbook part 2 You move onto this book when finished with part 1, also has a cd

Optional workbook pt 2 extra practice that accompanies the second part

These are all the 2nd ed.

u/nguyen846 · 2 pointsr/genki if you're referring to this one, I'm not sure why it says Japanese edition in the title. In the description it does say Japanese/English. There is a few full Japanese pages at the beginning, which is like the introduction, but there's the english version after it. This book is surely both in Japanese and English as it is meant for english speakers to learn Japanese.

Try if you have iOS. I'm not sure if Imiwa is on Android, this app serves as a dictionary.

Also checkout the 1st Genki textbook and workbook, they are used by schools all over the US and my professor teaches from it daily.

Textbook: GENKI I: An Integrated Course in Elementary Japanese (English and Japanese Edition)

Workbook: Genki: An Integrated Course in Elementary Japanese Workbook I [Second Edition] (Japanese Edition) (Japanese and English Edition)

I started with Duolingo as well and it wasn't a great start. These books will help further your Japanese learning. I've been studying for two years starting in August, they really work.

r/learnjapanese is also a great place to check for viable resources besides the ones I mentioned.
Good luck! 頑張って!

u/gegegeno · 2 pointsr/LearnJapanese

It's in the "customers also buy..." section. Linky.

IIRC, the text doesn't have the input sections (though it does have some exercises I think - it's been a while). The workbook is intended to be where most of the exercises are. Did you get the CD with the text?

u/mseffner · 2 pointsr/LearnJapanese

You need the textbook itself, as well as the workbook. Scans of the answer key are among the first results on Google when you search "Genki answer key". There's nothing else you need, though pencil and paper will probably be helpful. I also recommend checking out Anki, which is a flashcard program that will help you memorize vocabulary.

u/Snakey1024 · 2 pointsr/japanlife

Download Anki and the Japanese packs. Good place to start for vocab and grammar. If you like workbooks, I like the Genki series best. Also look at /r/learnjapanese for other learning materials and questions.

u/hardkoretom · 2 pointsr/AskNYC

the 2 apps I use are Kanjibox and Imiwa. Both are for IOS.

Kanjibox is a quiz type of app that teaches the kanji characters based on the JLPT certification levels. If you don't have IOS there is an internet based version here.

Imiwa is just a really extensive english - japanese dictionary.

If you are looking for a textbook, this and this are a couple of the more well regarded ones. This is another book for learning just the kanji.

Good luck

u/pokitopockets · 2 pointsr/LearnJapanese

(sorry, for some reason I only got the notification of your reply now)

Yes, the cheap one is the workbook. A workbook is an optional book that only contains exercises, it won't teach you japanese. It's useful, but if it's up to you to buy it or not. What you need is the textbook, which is the book that actually teaches you stuff (vocab, grammar).

This one is the textbook and this one is the workbook.

u/corporalgrenwick · 2 pointsr/LearnJapanese

If you can directly import from Amazon Japan, the prices aren't that bad. They are currently ¥3,780 each for the textbooks, ¥1,728 each for the workbooks, and ¥864 for the answer key (note these prices have tax included so if you are ordering and shipping them outside Japan they may remove the tax--I paid ¥3,500, ¥1,600, and ¥800).


u/dxrebirth · 2 pointsr/LearnJapanese

Remembering the Kanji is very popular: amazon

As well as Genki: amazon

Then there is the Human Japanese app:

Or the Anki app:

And then sites like: time based flash cards correspondence with people that are also trying to learn your language.

I don't know. I am a beginner myself, but these are a good start as far as I am concerned.

u/Nineyfox · 1 pointr/LearnJapanese

Hmm, you might want to try buying those from the sites instead. I bought them for $130 (GENKI 1 & 2 costed me $69) and the workbooks too + a dictionary. I think you could buy them for ¥6400 which equals to $55 shipping included.
Here the links:

Workbook 2

u/condemn_the_truth · 1 pointr/LearnJapanese

The book alone is £39 and the workbook is £20 incl shipping. You pay £5 more to buy it in that bundle lmao.

u/klistwan · 1 pointr/LearnJapanese
u/sumirina · 1 pointr/LearnJapanese

I don't really know why but the books are listed twice on Amazon... on the more expensive base listing (the 90€ one) the alternative shops are actually a bit cheaper (see here) so at least you could get the textbook for around ~50€ and I think the workbook is around 23€ here (the picture shows the second edition so it should be the right one), maybe if you get them from the same shop you could get lucky with cheaper shipping as well, but I don't know about that (same goes for the answer key )

Apart from looking for cheaper shopping on Amazon de you might also want to check Amazon jp (the shipping costs are pretty high but the base price is much cheaper). I'm a bit too lazy to look it up right now, but you can change the site to English so it shouldn't be too hard. Just don't forget to calculate the shipping in as well!

u/nillllux · 1 pointr/LearnJapanese

Should I get the Genki 1 book as well as the workbook? Or will just the g1 book be fine on its own?

u/Yunihorn · 1 pointr/SakuraGakuin

Yeah, Marin's English speaking skill was unexpected knowing that most/some Japanese people are not good at it. Maybe she goes to cram school and learn advance English. She's smart and adorable too :)

I recommend using Genki book for beginners(like me lol)
You should try it if it's available near your area.

u/AllOfTimeAndSpace · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

My classes start on the 4th. :) I've bought most of my textbooks already but I really need this Japanese workbook for my intro Japanese course. I moved it from my books list to my main list so its easy to find if you end up picking me. :) This is a really great contest and even if I don't win I think it's fantastic that you're willing to help people get their hands on much needed textbooks. <3

u/meattbone · 1 pointr/NJTech

I actually took the class at Rutgers. It was very fun and interesting, but you could probably do all the work on your own (if you're dedicated enough). The textbook we used was Genki 1
The workbook as well

Not all Rutgers classes are on the NJIT schedule builder. Japanese you'll have to find in the Rutgers schedule builder:

Finally, to register for any class at Rutgers, you need to fill out this form and bring it to our registrar:

Sorry to bug you one more time. Would you suggest this one with the CD-ROM or would I just need the workbook? Thanks again.

u/ninjininja · 1 pointr/unt
u/Pennwisedom · 1 pointr/LearnJapanese

I believe this is the right one. Someone else should double check because I don't know why it just says Japanese edition on it. And why it is not Prime.

u/Kortheon · 1 pointr/Philippines

Won't you prefer to learn by yourself? This book is a workbook with audio for you to practice with. (I've used it myself). Look around the internet for an "online" copy for 'free" (it's what I did but my source was recently shutdown yeah we all know which one it was pretty kickass)

u/Hodsulfr · 1 pointr/LearnJapanese

This and This you don't happend you know the difference since there's such a huge price difference.

Edit: nvm textbook and workbook. Would i need both or is textbook enough?

u/cygnus54 · 0 pointsr/LearnJapanese

Im pretty sure you could buy it straight from with the cd:

I bought genki 2 from amazon jp a while back, and shipping to the US wasn't that much.

u/Max9419 · 0 pointsr/LearnJapanese


I'm interested in taking genki too, i would like to know if you bought only the book

or if you also bought the exercises ( question and answer)

thank you!

u/[deleted] · 0 pointsr/LearnJapanese

I wanted to avoid it, but I guess I am going to have to buy a textbook to learn from. Would you suggest this book?
