Obento Deluxe Student Book with 1 Access Code for 26 Months

By | Copyright Year:2019 | ISBN-13: 9780170413961

The Obento series is the market-leading Japanese series for Years 7–10 students in Australia. This fifth edition is revised and updated with greater explicit alignment to The Australian Curriculum: Japanese, greater support for the acquisition of Japanese script, streamlined and high-calibre digital content and a more cohesive 7–10 series.

The full-colour student book provides the core language and script and is grounded in communicative methodology. Intercultural awareness and understanding is carefully integrated into relevant topics within the text. All script is presented in context, so students develop their core language learning skills of listening, speaking and reading as they progress through the content.
