This material is intended for those who are just starting to learn Japanese. The material in this section is comparable to the material learned in the first semester of a Japanese course in college. It includes about 700 vocabulary words and around 100 kanji.

You will need to learn the entire kana before starting the lessons in this section. This book is written using Japanese scripts and while one can learn Japanese from material written in romaji this book agrees with the view that learning the Japanese scripts along with the language is more useful and ultimately provides a deeper understanding of the language.

Please consider contributing to this level. You needn't even have completed it; only that you have something useful to share. It can be simple improvements of prose, new sections or full lessons. Your help is invaluable to improving and expanding this wikibook.
