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 book is great for reviewing and solidify your understanding of what you learn in Genki: An Integrated Course in Elementary Japanese. This book wasn't mandatory for the course I studied, but I still feel it helped me a lot.

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.

Whether you are using this as part of a class or doing it for self learning, this workbook is awesome. There is only one or two sheets for each section, but it covers most everything important. It further pushes the learning and doesn't allow for as much cheating as you would do when working within the book alone. It is, however, a supplement to the book so you definitely need to get the Genki I Second Edition text book.GENKI I: An Integrated Course in Elementary Japanese [With CDROM] (Japanese Edition) (English and Japanese Edition)

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?"
