IRODORI builds practical Japanese skills with plenty of audio and authentic materials
How to use the textbook / Download All(starter)
There are four types of activity in each lesson: speaking, listening, reading, and writing. Each activity can stand alone, but they are all loosely connected within one lesson. The number, type, and arrangement of activities is different in each lesson, but generally there are more speaking activities. If your goal is to improve the communication skills of your own students, we recommend that you utilize the required “Speaking Activities” and “Listening Activities”.
IRODORI emphasizes listening input. It is important for you to listen to a lot of Japanese so that you can use it in real-life situations. Therefore, IRODORI provides plenty of audio files. With these audio files and materials, you can learn practical Japanese that you can use immediately.
URL “How to use the textbook” above has details on how to use each activity.
