View topic - after genki
About a month ago i completed genki hon 2 workbooks and all. and i came to a relization,
the genki series are good for basic stuff, but when you finish them they leave you at a point where you dont know where to go, i have been studying a new book for the last month called intermediate to advanced japanese, its good, but there are alot of kanji (not a problem) but there is no furigana, so my girlfriend has been writing them out for me, then i have to make my own vocab list and study them beofre i start the chapters. i going to keep studying it till i finish, but,
i was wondering if anyones ( who has been studying for a while) no of anygood text books for continuation after genki 2 textboook, ive been searching but it is hard to look in the book to tell if it is good. i was in japan last month and bought abunch of level 4 and 3 jlpt books but they are a little to easy. i just want to find a good solid book that cover intermediate to advanced.
if anyone can help it would be much apprieciated.

Genki, for all its flaws, really does give you a great foundation for understanding the language. After you've finished your advanced to intermediate textbooks, the only thing left is to listen, read, write and speak on your own. I know it's easy for me to say that since I'm living in Japan and not the states. I remember feeling frustrated with the lack of opportunities in my area to use my Japanese. You've at least got a significant other who's fluent, so that's something to be thankful for right there.

I dont know any texts to reccommend, as like you I'm looking for one, but I'll share with you this site I find helpful:
http://opal.ecis.nagoya-u.ac.jp/~jems/h ... rvideo.htm
It has videos you can listen to and is relatively interactive. Good luck! I hope we can find a good next step!
Ikimashoz- I'll look into the books you reccommended
