Textbooks used in Japan

Postby 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?
