"It provides web-based and supplementary audio resources in addition to the textbook, which progressively give students more exposure to language a little beyond their expected level of attainment, and which immerse students in culturally authentic contexts." --Geoff Biesinger, AATJ Journal "Last year, I discovered the Beginning and Intermediate Japanese series by Kluemper. I changed textbooks immediately after experimenting with it for a week." --Kyler Jackson, Japanese Teacher, Thomas Jefferson High School "One of the newer textbooks in the intermediate space, and a little more lively perhaps than the integrated approach." blog
