Take off in Japanese
Lynne Strugnell (2008)
A beginner course in spoken and written Japanese but with the main focus on listening and speaking.
The sound recordings provide most of the instructions and content of the course with reading support, grammar explanations and additional activities (including tests) in the accompanying book.
Easy to follow, this would be a good choice for those who like to learn through activities and dialogues.
