This is a very wonderful workbook that not only incorporates writing and memorization of vocabulary, but is a grammatical review of whatever is taught in the textbook. I also love how there are listening parts to really help you learn the language.

This workbook is a very good supplement to the textbook Genki I. It contains numerous exercises designed to help solidify your comprehension of the material learned in each chapter of the textbook. I would say that the most useful portion of the workbook is the sections that teach you how to write the different Japanese characters, hiragana, katakana, and kanji, and has outlines that you can trace to get a feel for how they should be drawn. Unfortunately, the workbook does not contain stroke orders for kanji, but the kanji that you learn in the textbook do have stroke orders, and it is easy to cross reference with the textbook, since you should not have this workbook without the textbook that it accompanies.

This is a companion to the textbook. This one has pages that you can write in, to practice your Japanese penmanship and such. Really, it's a typical foreign language lesson workbook. Nothing super cool, nothing super awful.

However, this series is NOT setup for you to teach yourself the language. It's best to have an instructor and a structured lesson plan that utilizes the exercises in the book. This particular volume is good for your first year of Japanese language studies. You will learn your first 50 or so "kanji" characters, which are based on Chinese. You will also learn some katakana, which is used for bringing foreign (English, French, etc.) words into Japanese. The bulk of it, however, focuses on the hiragana. That is the alphabet with the loopy characters that is used for most words in the Japanese language.

The kanji, katakana, and hiragana are all used interchangeably in Japanese, and so this book usually starts by showing you the katagana or hiragana (those two are mutually exclusive) spelling for a word. Then a few lessons later you might be taught the kanji for the word.

You will learn your basic Japanese alphabets, how to tell time and dates, greetings, and basic conversation phrases such as "I like sushi," or "My favorite singer is Paul McCartney. Who is yours?"

This workbook is an excellent compliment to the lesson plan. It provides adequate practice exercises and a CD which enables the student to listen to natural Japanese speakers thus enhancing the lesson. I've made copies of the exercises so that I can review the exercises over and over again.

I really like this second edition!

I would suggest that the reader/learner learn Hiragana fully before they begin lesson 1, and then learn Katakana before they begin lesson 2. Otherwise learning can be frustrating. Once you've got those down then I would also suggest going through each lesson without the audio cd. Do every party on paper, then do the work book, then go back to the beginning of the lesson and use the CD (to give you another round through the lesson). The best way to learn is by repetition and this book has a lot of material, but if you do it right then it really is a good book! And the workbook is a must have if you're getting this to practice on your own and not just for a textbook for school.

This workbook is so fun to work with, as long as you have the accompanying textbook you will have a great time learning Japanese without having to pore through pages and pages of words. Of course, I'm taking a Japanese course in college so this book is my escape from the other too-wordy texbooks, but with this workbook you actually feel like you've accomplished something and are actually learning the stuff the accompanying textbook teaches you.

The workbook was a great help in practicing both reading and writing and set in a way that it is also entertaining. A most remarkable book.

Genki (げんき) is a great book and had helped me a lot. I love the way the book is organized and split into sections. I am using it for self study and it has gone well with me so far. I have also bought the textbook with it to help with the lessons. I highly recommend this book to anyone who is wanting to study Japanese (にほんご).
