Description: In Adventures in Japanese, Volume 4 textbook, students will explore “the Japanese soul”: the social, historical, and cultural forces that influence Japanese life. They will study keigo (honorific language), the historical context of Japanese immigration, the issue of Japanese internment camps during World War II, and the bombing of Hiroshima. Cultural discussions include the traditional cultural arts of the tea ceremony, calligraphy, and Japanese haiku poetry. Students get a final glimpse of Japan with a lesson on traveling to the historical cities of Kyoto and Nara.

Lessons center around more sophisticated dialogues and complex narratives, some of which are based on the authors’ personal experiences. One lesson focuses on the the poem Ame ni mo Makezu as an exemplary piece of Japanese literature. Volume 4 includes two new sections on onomatopoeic expressions (perapera koonaa) and proverbs. Students learn common Japanese expressions and learn to pronounce and use proverbs correctly.

In order to encourage character memorization, students create their own illustrations for newly learned kanji. After completing the Adventures in Japanese series, students will be able to write 340 kanji, communicate at an intermediate level in Japanese, and prepare for the AP* Japanese Language and Culture Exam.

The textbook comes bundled with the Adventures in Japanese Course Dictionary which contains Japanese-English and English-Japanese dictionaries, a kanji list, a verb list by conjugation group, adjective lists, and adverb lists for Volumes 1-4.
