Kitto Dekiru is a graduated course which moves from the simple to the complex. Books should be taught in order, as they provide a carefully structured approach. The topics progress from the world closest to the learner (self, home, friends) and gradually progress out to the wider world school, shopping, travel). Each book can be used as a textbook or as a textbook and workbook combined. There are plenty of exercises providing opportunities for selfstudy and homework tasks. Book One Myself and Friends Everyday Greetings � Talking about Yourself and Friends Counting � Telling the time Describing where you come from The Classroom Introductions Selfintroductions Likes and dislikes � Weather (From 2008, Book One will contain Romaji rather than Katakana).
