Tobira (Gateway to Advanced Japanese Learning through Content and Multimedia)
Tobira would be an excellent backbone textbook for a serious third-year college-level course in Japanese. The authors expect the students to have completed one of several widely-used introductory/intermediate series (Genki, Yookoso, or Nakama) in preparation for work at this level. I’d imagine that many instructors would want to introduce some material to bridge from these to Tobira. I’d estimate that students who master the Tobira material would test up to a “B2” on the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages scale; have a shot at a S2+/R2+ on the Interagency Language Roundtable scale; and do very well on the N3 level of the new Japanese Language Proficiency Test. More importantly, they would have a solid foundation for further study using unedited materials.
