Textbooks used in Japan

Have a textbook or grammar book that you find particularly helpful? What about a learning tip to share with others?

Textbooks used in Japan

Post by Zephys » Sun 07.07.2013 3:56 am

Hello, I'm wondering if anyone know what language arts textbooks are like in Japan. I wanted to order one and study from it, but all I find are textbooks guides online. Are the textbooks themselves exclusive to Japanese schools only?

Your guess is right.
You can buy textbooks used in Japanese schools only from authorized book stores, which online stores like Amazon.co.jp are not.

Why, are they afraid gaijin might learn something? :P

Ahh I see. That's unfortunate. Thanks for the information.

Well what kind of literature do they read in high school?
