The Kakehashi series of educational materials are designed to encourage students to learn not only words, but the cultural background that gave rise to those words and the logic that organizes them. This textbook is designed to work in conjunction with the corresponding workbook to help absolute beginners and intermediate students alike to reach functional fluency (i.e. to be able to get around in Japan, communicate witih Japanese people and survive in a Japanese work environment). Examples are given in native-sounding Japanese (as opposed to textbook-ish Japanese). Every example is written how it would normally be (in Chinese-derived "kanji" characters and the "kana" alphabet) with pronunciation guides provided to acclimate students to the way in which Japanese is constructed. Audio (pronunciation guides, dialogs, etc.) are available for free through the Kakehashi homepage: htttp://www.eraidesigns.com/kakehashi

The author of the Kakehashi series of educational materials is a professor of Japanese and comparative culture at a private university in California. Living much of his life abroad and working as a diplomat, social integration was not only a personal must, but part of his job. Through his experiences, he came to understand that, since language is a part of culture, functional language acquisition is impossible without learning to think like a native speaker of the language. The Kakehashi series is the embodiment of this realistic approach to learning and understanding language in its cultural context.
