If you feel like you are an "eternal beginner," this is for you. If you are studying for the Japanese Language Proficiency Test (JLPT) N5, this bundle is also for you. Japanese reading practice for beginners In addition to foundational topics, Beri- Beri- Shoshinsha also contains dozens of short stories to practice reading hiragana and even simple kanji.   INCREDIBLE VALUE Get 14 eBooks and resource packs for one low price and all with sound files.  Pay once and get lifetime updates including updates and supplementary material.   WHAT’S INCLUDED?

The Frank and the Obaasan series is also found in its own bundle, but this bundle is the best value overall. All other titles and worksheets are only found in this bundle.   All titles include sound files!   For beginners of Japanese--even (especially) those just starting out   Once you learn hiragana, next comes practice, and this bundle includes tons of fun practice. We call these stories "Yonde Miyou" which means "try to read" or "let's read." Each story or essay is short and interesting. No Dick and Jane or boring fluff. Read about common (and funny) mistakes foreigners make in Japan or Japanese. Learn about unusual aspects of Japanese culture. Each story is presented three times. Once in hiragana only with spaces. Once in full Japanese but with furigana over every kanji. And lastly, the story is presented again without furigana. Oh, and every word and grammatical pattern is defined and explained.  There are over two dozen of these stories. And that's just one section of Beri- Beri- Shoshinsha!   ABOUT THE TITLE The name is a play on two English words plus the Japanese word for “beginner”. ベリー beri- sounds like “very” and “berry” and 初心者 shoshinsha means “beginner” in Japanese (see the breakdown of that word below).    So, ベリーベリー初心者  (beri- beri- shoshinsha)  can mean “very very beginners” or “berry berry beginners.” The name isn’t particularly meaningful, but it is cute and we like it. :)   Buy this bundle now and get ALL future volumes in this series FREE   Not a beginner?

I am a firm believer in setting goals. It is the quickest way to make progress.   Unfortunately, with goal-setting, there is usually the problem of maintaining motivation. By paying money and making plans to sit in a test (usually) in a different city; however, you are making a major investment of time and money. There are few pressures in life that can motivate better than time or money. That’s why we always recommend any serious student of Japanese to sign up and study for the JLPT.   Japanese Vocabulary for JLPT N4 covers all the vocabulary needed to pass the Japanese Language Proficiency Test level N4. This is the easiest of the test levels and is suitable for beginners who have mastered hiragana.   Add the 1,200+ MP3s to your MP3 player, iPhone, or computer and listen while studying the book. Compilation MP3 files of each chapter's list are also included. These have each word followed by the example sentence for sequential learning.

Yes, you can read real Japanese–even if you are just starting out in Japanese. All Japanese have furigana Four full traditional Japanese stories about the legendary Hikoichi. Every sentence is broken down word-for-word and with an explanation of the grammar. The full story in Japanese only (without the running gloss) is also provided so you can practice reading without interruption.

Download the FREE MP3s to listen while you study. Includes both normal speed and slow speed readings. The first story has the lord of the castle testing Hikoichi in a Solomon-esque question–which young lord is the true young lord? The second story shows choosing the first and most favorable isn’t always best. In the end, only Hikoichi can enjoy the cherry blossoms. The third story is about a mysterious, but the living umbrella. Some things are just too good to be true. We wrap things up with Hikoichi’s encounter with a Tengu–a mythical creature whose straw raincoat renders its wearer invisible. While beginners to Japanese can get a lot from this, hiragana knowledge is required. If you are brand-new to Japanese, we recommend our Beri- Beri- Shoshshinsha digital bundle first.

Beginning Japanese Phrases and Stories for Beginners [Digital Download] $ 9.99
 ➡️ How to read the eBooks in your bundle? You may need to follow the steps outlined in our eBook guide   If you are a beginner looking for useful material to read, this is for you. WHO IS THIS FOR? Beginners who have learned hiragana. The level of this bundle is somewhere between our (total beginner-level) Beri- Beri- Shoshinsha and our more advance readers such as Learn Japanese with Stories.     INCREDIBLE VALUE We are launching this new bundle with only two books, but we'll add the third book in a few days.  Pay once and get lifetime updates including updates and supplementary material.   WHAT’S INCLUDED? Learn Japanese with Stories: Mike's Diary Beginning Japanese Phrases Book 1: Podcast episodes 1-30 Beginning Japanese Phrases Book 2: Podcast episodes 31-60 All titles include sound files!   ABOUT THE TITLES Learn Japanese with Stories: Mike's Diary If you have learned hiragana and you understand (very) basic Japanese sentence structure, you are ready for this series. Instead of learning isolated vocabulary (no fun!), reading real Japanese is a great way to learn vocabulary and kanji in context. For the beginner, however, native reading material is too much of a challenge. Our Learn Japanese with Stories for Beginners series enables even beginners to truly enjoy reading natural Japanese. The early stories use basic vocabulary, beginner-level grammar, and simplified Japanese sentence structures. As you progress, earlier concepts build into more complex grammar, vocabulary, and sentence structures. Each story is presented in several ways.1. The story with spaces and complete vocabulary and explanation2. The story in full Japanese (without spaces, but with furigana—the small hiragana—over kanji)3. The story in English to cement understanding This is followed by five important kanji found in the story. There are only five kanji here, so spend some time familiarizing yourself with them.   Beginning Japanese Phrases Book 1 & 2 This series is based on a weekly podcast we produce called (unimaginatively) Beginning Japanese Phrases. See here: https://thejapanesepage.com/beginning-japanese-phrases-podcast-and-videos/ As we do in the podcast, we'll introduce one useful Japanese word, phrase, or grammatical function. Then we'll breakdown an example sentence using that word within a common context.Each example sentence will include a literal and more natural translation as well as all the vocabulary and grammar defined and explained. We are including ro-maji at the end, but we highly recommend avoiding that and work through the Japanese instead.   Buy this bundle now and get ALL future volumes in this series FREE   Not a beginner?
