The aim of series 1 was to be able to greet and introduce yourself, and series 2 was aimed at developing your ability to participate in small talk, to describe your body condition, and to express your opinions about a close topic. The aim of series 3 is to solve problems that happen in daily life in Japanese. We will learn Japanese expressions that are used when the relationships are getting wider and deeper in romantic, academic, or business scenes in daily life. For example, we will learn how to express your opinion or emotion such as encouragement, advice, joy, hesitation, worry, anger, refusal, apology, and so on.
