We have written English translations with Japanese grammatical structures in order to focus on the target sentence patterns. Therefore, some of them may not be natural in terms of English grammar. In addition, words in parentheses are omitted in Japanese.

The Instantaneous Composition Method requires prior knowledge of Japanese grammar. Thus, it’s more effective to proceed with this program after or while reading following grammar guidebooks.
