Genki??

How do you use genki to teach yourself? I have the workbook and the textbook. But why is the kana at the back of the book? How do you DO the book?

The kana is in the beginning of the book. Do you have it upside down/backwards?

Keep looking, I used Genki and became surprisingly successful.
In the beginning, the first lesson should be kana.

The after that, here's the layout of every chapter:
-A dialogue you can read before you start the lesson (you shouldn't be able to understand most of it at first)
-Vocab that should be memorized, they will be used in the chapters/exercises
-Grammar explanations
-Exercises testing your knowledge of the grammar and vocab you learned
-At the end of the lesson, you should be able to understand the dialogue in the beginning of the lesson.

Ok. There are lessons in teh front AND the back. The back section is the writing lessons, and the front section is the grammer/vocab lessons. So, when you study lesson one, study lesson one study section in the back etc.

The workbook has a front and back study section as well. The front is for Grammer/vocab etc and teh back is for writing again.

If you have the CDs, the student CDs include the dialog, the vocab and the Listening comprehension in the workbook. The teachers CDs, contain all that plus the "practice" section in the textbook.

So basically, read the dialog beforehand, even if you don't understand it. Memorize the vocab, then start on the granner. After you finish the grammer, do the practice. After that, go to the back of the textbook and memorize the kanji and do the kanji practice. Then, do the grammer section in the workbook, followed by the kanji section in the workbook. At least, that is how I do it. (Since you didn't mention the CDs, I won't go into detail on those)
