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!

This bundle is perfect for absolute beginners. It's thorough without being wordy, giving you exactly enough information to understand the concepts without overloading you with information. That way you can dip your toes in the language without getting overwhelmed. Plus Frank and the Obasaan is such a cute and clever reader and it makes me smile. I love it. I've learned so much already.
Awesome! I'm glad you liked it and that it helped you. I'm also thrilled you like Frank. We will have to write another 'season' of his adventures. :)
I have been with The Japanese Page and The Japan Shop for a little over a year, and the products and customer service are always excellent. I got this because there are so many ways of saying the same thing, and you find something new every time. It's easy to follow, Yumi's voice is soft and clear. It is also good for reviewing and keeping things you know fresh in mind. You always get way more for what you pay.
Thanks for the hard work!!!
Thank you so much! I'm glad you liked it and thank you for your kind words :)
This package to start to learn japanese seems overall very prefect to me. Its content is far more than I expected. It is fun to study japanese with this one as there are also solutions for quizzes and practices (there are to be many textbooks that do not have the solutions). Big recommendation!!!
Thank you so much! I'm glad to hear you like the content. We'll add more quizzes and crosswords soon (thanks for reminding me!)
An excellent blend of stories, explanations and practice materials that are easy to download after purchase and simple to print on demand. I've been using the stories with running-gloss to improve my reading and have found them very helpful. And I've just started looking at the 'first Japanese sentences' which are like a grammar-lesson made-relevant...and fun. Definately more engaging than a big thick book, and amazing value for money. If you're wondering whether to buy it...do!
Thank you so much! I'm thrilled to hear you are enjoying the material. Keep at it and let us know if you have any questions!
For some months, I tried some ways to start learning Japanese and I didn't make progress. Thanks to this bundle, I could acquire the necessary knowledge to deal with the textbooks without struggling.
