Overview

NAKAMA 2 is the second part of a two-year proficiency-oriented program that emphasizes practical communication and the development of listening, reading, writing, and speaking skills. The eleven thematic chapters, plus one preliminary chapter, focus on high-frequency communication situations; while chapter dialogues illustrate typical daily events representative in Japanese life and provide realistic contexts in which to learn vocabulary and grammar. The program is supported by the iLrn™ Language Learning Center, a dynamic all-in-one diagnostic, tutorial, assessment, assignment, and course management system that saves instructors time and enhances students' language-learning experience.
