Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
For the past three semesters, I've been really happy using the Genki textbooks, so switching from those textbooks to Hiyaku was a terrible transition. To start, the grammar points have absolutely no English explanation on how they should be used; the book literally introduces a grammar pattern and then lists a bunch of example sentences - with no English translation, by the way - so if you're not sure how to read a kanji character, you're just tough out of luck. And if you're not sure what kind of exceptions the grammar patterns has, or if you're not supposed to use it in certain situations, too bad. On top of that, with kanji writing section, they will provide you with two examples of terms/vocabulary that include that kanji... but only give you a definition for ONE of the examples. That second term? Yeah, forget about it - they're not going to tell you what it means.

If you are a college student and your professor wants you switch to this book, point all of these things out and hope that they will listen to reason. This book is awful.

I like the idea behind this book and their approach to teaching Japanese in a more practical manner but even with my professor guiding us through it, the setup of the book was not user friendly. I found that the Kanji areas were ESPECIALLY challenging.
