A resource for developing the Japanese writing skills needed by university students.


This book provides concrete tasks for learning the expressions and grammatical constructions needed to write logically in Japanese. The ten units are grouped into three levels for progressive training: (1) Building short sentences into paragraphs → (2) Composing text such as reports on experiences, announcements, and self-introductions → (3) Practicing writing reports based on data and references.

Also available is Academic Japanese for International Students, a companion volume for enhancing university-level oral communication skills (taking notes on lectures, debating, carrying out administrative procedures, etc.).
