In addition, we are working on the translations of supplementary materials and they will be released one after the other as they are translated.

Here are the newly added contents and functions;

    Starter (A1): Vocabulary Lists (Chinese, Korean and Indonesian)
    (*Spanish, Thai and Russian will be added soon.)
    Intermediate (B1): Vocabulary Lists (Spanish and Russian)

  • >You can now download all the audio files of a textbook as a single package at a time and also stream the audio recordings. In addition, we have rearranged the audio files of Starter (A1) to Pre-intermediate (A2/B1) so that you can easily find and use what you need.

We hope more and more people will learn Japanese with Marugoto and use new Marugoto website.
