What is JUST TALK?

JUST TALK! is a high-beginner / low-intermediate level conversation course designed exclusively for Japanese students. The course can be used with teenagers or adults, and is suitable for both large or small classes. A Teacher's Guide and audio component are available separately.

What kind of syllabus does JUST TALK have?

JUST TALK! has a multi-syllabus approach. Each interactive, task-based unit has a focus on grammar, topic, or function. The ultimate goal of the course is to improve students' English by engaging them in enjoyable, communicative tasks.

What are the major features of the course?

  • JUST TALK! presents an enjoyable and interesting way to learn English through practice rather than through study.
  • JUST TALK! is designed for Japanese students in all aspects. The majority of conversation courses claiming to be designed for the Japanese market are, in fact, aimed at a larger Asian/world market. JUST TALK! meets the needs of Japanese students better because it focuses on a specific population.
  • Translations of key vocabulary are given in a unit by unit format at the back of the Student's Book. Roman characters are used for the Japanese so that non-Japanese teachers can access the vocabulary as well.
  • Each unit includes an unrehearsed, semi-scripted recording done by a variety of native speakers who are not actors.
  • The Teacher's Guide includes tapescripts of the recordings, translations of key words and expressions, and answer keys.
  • JUST TALK! is both user and teacher-friendly. The book is extremely easy to use and requires very little teacher preparation.
