In the Teaching Methods in Japanese as a Foreign Language course at ICU we analyze the Japanese language textbooks which are used in the ICU Japanese Language Programs classes. The purpose of this analysis is for the students to learn what items are presented and how they are taught in the beginning level Japanese language classes. We developed a questionnaire on what the students think about the textbooks, Japanese for College Students: Basic 1, 2, 3, asking for their comments on "overall impression of the books", "lesson structure", "models of modern Japanese conversation", "topics and situations" and "grammatical items." In this paper the responses on grammatical items are discussed. Results showed that the selection of the grammatical items and the explanations for the items are good. The description of Japanese grammar in the Japanese language teaching is different from what the Japanese students learned before they came to ICU. The main differences are: verb grouping, particles, auxiliary verbs, adjectival nouns, conditionals, giving and receiving, passive and polite expressions. The goal of the presentation of Japanese grammar in teaching is simplicity and ease of explaining to the learners. Through the analysis of the textbooks students learn what should be taught in Japanese language classes; such analysis is important to enable the teaching methods students to acquire a basis for their future teaching.
