We have applied the teaching of Japanese pronunciation using chunking, posing and 'へ' shaped intonation as an approach that is teachable and learnable. We have already compiled a pronunciation textbook for Japanese beginners and advanced learners and are currently developing teaching material for upper-intermediate learners of Japanese. The upper-intermediate learners have already learnt basic Japanese but need to develop the variation in expression and pronunciation and the ability to use the variation appropriately. Our textbook for the learners, therefore, facilitates the development of learners' pronunciation through various tasks, such as speech and discussion, to acquire the variation in expression and pronunciation. For each task, the learner outcomes are elucidated to both teachers and learners. This paper discusses the process of creating the textbook.
