This course is based on a series of textbooks developed by the Japan Foundation for adults learning Japanese as a foreign language. The word Marugoto means “whole” or “everything”, and was chosen as the title of the textbooks because, in the words of the Japan Foundation, “the course encompasses both language and culture, features communication between people in a range of situations” and allows learners to “experience a variety of aspects of Japanese culture”.


The course content corresponds to level A1of the Japan Foundation Standard for Japanese Language Education which, like CEFR, consists of six levels from A1 to C2. Learners can monitor their progress through a Can-do check by matching their ability against can-do statements of each lesson.  

JF標準與CEFR (歐洲語言共同參考框架)一致,分為A1至C2六個級別。課程特色是以完成任務的能力,即『用日語能做到什麼』作為分級指標。學習目標以JF標準中的“Can-do” 設定,用詳細易明的『能夠…』句式描述完成任務的能力,從而制定出以實際交流為學習目的的學習進程。
