Overview

    This book is a supplement to the textbook Basic Technical Japanese.  It introduces 100 new kanji and more than 1500 technical terms that appear frequently in documents dealing with biotechnology, in addition to reviewing vocabulary containing the 365 kanji presented in Basic Technical Japanese.
    The text offers ten lessons, each presenting key vocabulary and ten new kanji, which reappear in the exercises for that lesson and throughout subsequent lessons, reinforcing learning. The exercises emphasize vocabulary building, kanji recognition, definition matching, and translation skills. An introductory lesson reviews the katakana and hiragana writing systems, as well as the kanji presented in the first ten chapters of Basic Technical Japanese.
    The lessons in this book have been keyed to the final ten chapters of Basic Technical Japanese, so that students can use the two volumes together to build a Japanese vocabulary and to practice translation related to biotechnology.
