I have a doubt and this is that I need to know to which level are the lessons equivalent to. Am going to study in Japan and they ask for the level to enter in which class, they say that they use Genki 1 and 2, but I use the Minna no Nihongo and take lesson twelve, so I don't know how it is equivalent with the one that I use and therefore how can I enter in the class
Assuming that you plan to learn Japanese through a book, you will need to pick the textbook that suits your needs and skills. We highly suggest Genki, since it is a well-rounded, popular textbook, while Minna no Nihongo is a dedicated and thorough workbook that requires more from learners. It is also a great study tool for people who are dedicated and love learning.
From the start, Genki requires students to know the rules and the concepts that we outline in the book: we try to be as clear as possible and many students benefit from having a teacher to help them the first time they study. In contrast, Minna no Nihongo expects students to be more cognitively engaged from the start and tasks learners with building vocabulary, memorizing inflected words and reading. The terminology is also tougher and several terms require learners to think before self-expressing themselves, while the teachers also take care of students that struggle to understand some terminology. 7211a4ac4a
