As the popularity of manga in this country continues to soar, so does the desire of its fans to learn Japanese in order to appreciate it in its original language. The three volumes in the Japanese in MangaLand series combine the enjoyment of reading manga with an innovative and entertaining approach to language instruction. Now comes the Japanese in MangaLand Workbook 1, a perfect way for readers to practice and assimilate what they learned in the first volume. The Workbook offers more than 150 complementary activities, divided into six sections that enable students to practice writing hiragana, katakana and kanji, as well as to optimize the vocabulary and grammar that were taught in the textbook itself. An exciting special feature — 24 pages of a Rakujo manga created exclusively for this workbook — further enhances the learning experience.
