Nihongo Notes Vol. 1: Language and Culture

Regular price $ 25.50 $ 25.50

It's difficult to suggest a level for this book. Each article is written both in Japanese and in English (with romaji). So, definitely beginners could read and learn a lot, but I think the topics covered are more for the upper beginner level.

Using simple, but real-world conversations, the authors take one neglected--but certainly important--grammatical or cultural point.

As you can see with the scans, the right page is in Japanese and the left is in English with romaji. This is certainly nice if you have a Japanese tutor. Your tutor/teacher can read the Japanese and explain any nuance not mentioned in the book.

Quality content with really helpful explanations

Firstly, I'm glad the dialogues feel like conversations I would actually have. That makes it so much easier to relate to and remember.

Secondly, the explanations about appropriate politeness level are really helpful and put the different ways of saying things in context. I also like that the books tell you if a word or phrase is very common.

Last but definitely not least, I am impressed by the quality of these books. This isn't the first bundle by Clay & Yumi Boutwell that I've purchased and I will certainly buy more in the future. The content is consistently great. Even the files are well thought out with three different formats included for each book.

More Hello Kitty

What can I say? I am obsessed with Hello Kitty and these items have found a happy home :-)!!!

Amazing

I've been searching for beginner-intermediate Japanese books and graciously came across this bundle (thanks fb). It offers more than just a simple read with crackdown explanation sentence-by-sentence which is extremely helpful. I began to notice myself picking up the pace and the ability to understand without reading the explanation.

TL;DR : Worth it for beginners. Take advantage of the price before it goes off!

I wish there are more books like these to read, and I will purchase other bundles in the future. ありがとうございます。

Excellent ro start your learning experience!

A must read to pick up on the correct way to pronounce and write hiragana with tips for easy memory work and follow up. Greatly recommended!

Excellent listening practice

The vocabulary package is worth the price of entry alone. The pronunciation is so precise, and clear.
