Japanese-language material "Irodori: Japanese for Life in Japan" https://www.irodori.jpf.go.jp/en/ is a textbook newly developed and published on a website by the Japan Foundation. It aims to respond to the increasing needs of learning Japanese for daily life, such as for dining, shopping, working, going out, communicating with locals and being prepared for an emergency, as more foreigners come to live in Japan.

The Japan Foundation will hold online seminars on Irodori in which the authors themselves, who fully know and understand the materials, will present how to use and teach with these materials. The "IRODORI Japanese Online Course" based on the textbook will also be introduced. Please feel free to join us.
