Product description

Product Description

Audio and free lessons can be found on the Learn Japanese Youtube Channel:

In order to make language learning logical and simple, the reading material in textbooks is usually quite dull. And most textbooks don’t teach much about the writing style of novels and short stories. This means that even an intermediate student of Japanese might encounter many difficulties when attempting to explore Japanese literature. This book is aimed at students who wish to bridge this gap between real Japanese literature and the reading material of textbooks.

This book will also help students learn or solidify a lot of the grammar found in level N4 of the Japanese Language Proficiency Test and introduce them to some of the grammar in level N3. It will also help to expand their vocabulary, because while the stories in this collection are based on stories from Japanese folklore, they have been written in a more accessible manner and with common words.

Each story is presented first in Japanese followed by an English translation. Yet, the English version is more literal than might be found in a stand-alone translation in order to help the reader better understand its connection with the Japanese.
Following this, the story will be divided into smaller sections where each new word is defined and explanations of the grammar involved are given. However, this is a continuation of the first book, so extremely common words like 言うand 思うas well as elementary particles will not be defined, nor will there be explanations for the grammar that was covered in the first book. And again in this book, explanations of each aspect of grammar will also only be given once and the stories become progressively more difficult, so the reader is encouraged to read them in order.

Also, to better prepare you for progressing to an intermediate level, no translation has been provided for the final story. However, all of the grammar in the story has already been covered and most of the words have already been seen, although there is still a vocabulary section.
