This paper summarizes the reviews of Japanese language textbooks for intermediate-level learners. Articles written on this subject, that is, Japanese language textbooks for intermediate-level learners, were collected as part of the on-going project to develop an intermediate-level textbook for learners of Japanese in the Japanese Language Programs, International Christian University. The following aspects of textbook development have been discussed and briefly summarized in this paper: (i) what skills should be emphasized (reading/writing or speaking/listening?), (ii) what kinds of topics are good as reading materials for learners of Japanese, (iii) how are grammatical points incorporated into readings in textbooks on the market, and (iv) what kinds of exercises and activities are there in those textbooks. Finally, an attempt to classify the textbooks into three types, the traditional type, the "new" type and the "geared-to-specific-skills" type, is introduced.

現在の用法での「~的」という語は英語からの影響を受け明治十年ごろから使われ始めたようである。ここ100年のうちに急速に使用が広まった「~的」を調べることは現代日本語の特質を把握することに通じるものと思われる。本稿は,一世代前の1962年の雑誌から抽出された「~的」を,「~的」と話題との関係,「~的」の語種や表記との関係,語の意味との関係などの観点から分析しその使用状況を明らかにする。

The level of the students enrolled in Intensive Japanese I ranges from the very beginning level to those already knowing up to about one-third of the Basic Japanese level. Moreover, the first part of the textbook used in this course contains more items to be learned than does the latter half. Therefore, until the true beginners catch up to those with prior knowledge, problems arise for both categories of student. This article proposes that we should 1) make an extra pre-lesson covering hiragana and basic daily conversation for the beginner to study before class begins, and 2) provide an exemption test which would excuse the more advanced students from the first few classes at the very basic level.
