3. The Minato Library has opened a Japanese language learning corner!

図書館

A new Japanese language learning corner has been set up on the 1st floor of the Minato Library! There are “Japanese Tadoku” books, copies of the popular “Minna no Nihongo” textbook, and other Japanese books that are focused on daily life and activities. Please visit us and do some reading!

The books in the collection are separated into “Japanese Tadoku”, “Minna no NIhongo”, or “Other Materials”.

・About “Japanese Tadoku”

“Japanese Tadoku” offers a way for students to learn about things they are interested in while also learning the Japanese language. It’s possible to enjoy the books by looking at pictures without having to use a dictionary. People want to read more when the books are fun to read. We have prepared books that will allow students to become familiar with many words and various situations. Eventually, students learn Kanji and gain the ability to read Japanese.

The learning corner has “Japanese Tadoku Series” books as well as the accompanying picture books.

・About “Minna no Nihongo”

The “Minna no Nihongo Series” is comprised of textbooks aimed at typical adult learners that teach basic sentence structures - from basic to more advanced. The explanations are not only written in English, but also in various languages such as Chinese, Korean, Vietnamese and Spanish.

The “Minna no Nihongo” materials provided in the Japanese learning corner includes the “Minna no Nihongo Series” which is the standard for learning basic Japanese.

・About “Other materials”

In addition to the above, we offer materials in a variety of genres that can help students learn Japanese language that is rooted in daily life, as well as business Japanese.

[Opening hours] Monday to Saturday 9時00分 am to 8時00分 pm, Sundays and holidays 9時00分 am to 5時00分 pm

[Contact] Minato Library 03-3437-6621
