The aim of this textbook series is for students to become able to communicate at the level necessary to participate in society. The scenarios that will be studied are situations where the student would realistically need to converse in Japanese, chosen from work scenarios, school scenarios and daily life. Because the goal of this book is to participate in society, it is assumed that the student will progress in a way that prioritizes ability to communicate over knowledge of vocabulary and grammar. The study method is as follows: students will attempt a conversation based on a real situation (conversation scenarios), and then they will study the sentence patterns used in the conversation and practice the sentence structure. Finally, they will confirm that they have become able to use the language through applied practice.
By beginning with conversations based on realistic scenarios, understanding of grammar can be checked, and students will smoothly gain the ability to understand sentence structures. There is no need for the teacher to explain the grammar at length, and the students can spend the majority of their class time practicing conversations among themselves. An advantage of beginning with the conversation scenarios is that students quickly learn how to converse naturally.
