"Students really responded to the full color manga dialogues. My school district loved seeing a Japanese textbook in hard cover. I really appreciated how the exercises and activities contributed to my students' communicative competence. The 4th Edition really does have something for everyone!"
"We use AIJ levels 1 to 3 for all of our Japanese courses. We highly recommend the AIJ series as it maximizes our students' learning of Japanese language and culture. The AIJ series covers the topics and concepts of IB and AP very well. The series also conveys the important message of being a peace builder and responsible global citizen. Lots of authentic resources and culture notes help students connect with real life situations. The Workbook exercises add a degree of difficulty that tests deeper understanding of the material. The speakers in the listening exercises speak according to the level, which helps students become accustomed to understanding Japanese speaking. There is sufficient support material for both teachers and students to reinforce skills and knowledge."
