Marugoto: Japanese Language and Culture is a textbook designed by the Japan Foundation specifically for adult learners. Characterized by being in full colour and filled with both pictures and images, Marugoto: Japanese Language and Culture invites learners to learn not only Japanese, but also Japanese culture alongside the language. Featuring a cast of multicultural characters interacting in Japanese, we are sure you will enjoy learning with this textbook.

Ready to support your learning!

For extra learning outside of the classroom Marugoto: Japanese Language and Culture features a support website, MARUGOTO Plus, which follows along with the textbooks. It contains skits and practice exercises, and is a great way to compliment your learning!
