About this deal

This is especially true for Minna no Nihongo, whose main textbook only features Japanese (the translation comes in a separate workbook). Again, Genki is more concise while the Minna no Nihongo series offers you a whole variety of materials to study, practice, and specialize.

The accompanying workbooks provide ample opportunity for practice to solidify your understanding of the material. Both textbooks are about the same size, but across their 2 volumes for beginner level, Genki is composed of 23 lessons while Minna no Nihongo features 50 lessons. In that sense, Genki is more adapted to beginners who want to self-study while Minna no Nihongo is more immersive from the start and requires more from the learners. In any event I don’t think it’s going to make or break your studies, so I wouldn’t worry about having made the “right” or “wrong” choice.

Generally speaking, most people who use textbooks in a classroom can expect to finish the series within one year.

I studied this book along with a workbook, which had exercises in it to work out based on the lessons found in this book. But actually, that’s one of the things I want… (perhaps)… with Genki, it seems like the tasks are designed for partner work… but too often… they mix up too many target language points without clarity… (i. Studying with the main, all-Japanese textbook will force you to figure things out through context and use your brain a little more.I may be ready for that ‘separate’ book clarification (but I do wonder about the presentation within that supplemental book).

It does not teach you many fundamental basic Japanese structure and start your journey with polite langauge. If both series target the same level, Genki is a steady beginner-friendly series: it will be harder to give up studying with Genki because the study environment is in English and it is easy to follow the flow of the lessons. Learning the vocab first and then trying to read the lesson afterward is in fact the recommended strategy! With illustrations, easy-to-understand charts, and diagrams, the book is visually stimulating, allowing the learner to more easily learn and reinforce beginner-level Japanese. It's the question on every Japanese Language student's mind: what is the best Japanese language textbook for me?I’ve been going through MNN but when I look online for tips and advice while studying Japanese a lot of people refer / mention the genki textbooks. Read more about the condition Very Good: A book that has been read and does not look new, but is in excellent condition. Those workbooks that start from the very beginning and gradually go up are really helpful to train listening.
