Loan words are an important part of Japanese vocabulary. From the point of view of speech classification, this paper compares the number of Katakana ideograms introduced in two groups of textbooks, new comprehensive Japanese and Japanese curriculum Volume 3. Then, (1) draw the conclusion that the volume of Chinese and foreign languages input is similar to the total volume. The two foreign languages in the two textbooks include nouns, verbs and adjectives, but the proportion is totally different. (3) both textbooks focus on the introduction of nominal loanwords, and the proportion is far greater than that of non nominal loanwords. 4) as for the classification of foreign languages, the volume and proportion of the two volumes are very similar.
