Teacher's manual
This book is designed for intermediate and advanced students of Japanese, to help them interact properly in Japanese society. It does so not only by introducing the real language, as spoken by millions, but also by serving as a guide to the varying levels of formality within Japanese society that are reflected in the language. The better one's Japanese becomes, the more one is expected to act like a Japanese, constantly adjusting level of diction and speech patterns as social status, intimacy, and context require. Through its twelve units, the text guides students to the level of competency necessary for communication within Japan's complex society, filling the void left by the usual advanced-level texts.
