Minna no Nihongo Shokyu Dai 2-Han Yasashii Sakubun
This book has been designed to enable people even at the beginner stage to write coherently in basic Japanese. The book is divided into two parts: Basic Practice (Units 1-15), which uses the vocabulary and sentence patterns found in Minna no Nihongo Shokyu I and II Main Texts, and Practical Application (Units 16-20), which involves practical application at a level equal to the beginning of the intermediate stage.
The book comes with a separate booklet at the back that includes word lists in English, Chinese and Korean, a flow chart showing the structure of the desired piece of writing, exercise answers, and a Teacher's Manual.
Though produced for use with the Minna no Nihongo, it can also be used with other beginner textbooks.
