  • Prefecture Spotlight: each issue introduces a different Japanese prefecture
  • Read about Japanese history in real Japanese! Yes, as long as you have learned hiragana, you can read real Japanese today with these fully annotated stories. (Don’t know hiragana yet?! No problem. Our book to help you master hiragana is included.)
  • For the reader, every single line and every word are explained and defined.
  • Designed specifically for beginners to intermediates.
  • Build your Japanese vocabulary, understand new grammatical patterns, improve your reading skills, and hone in your listening abilities
  • Each reader includes TWO MP3s recorded by a native Japanese voice actress. One read slowly and one read at normal speed.
  • Print out the PDFs and drop the MP3s on your phone for on the go studying.
  • Normally each of the Makoto issues sell for $4 each and the two bonus books sell for $4.49 each. Now, for the first time, you can get them all together for a single low price of $28.98! Er... Nope! It's $15.00.

Perfect for the beginner to intermediate student of Japanese.

A whole lot of accurate work as usual, and real fun too. I absolutely love that crazy but determined ninja Penguin: right attitude mate!

Thank you so much! I will tell Mr. Ninja Penguin about your comment. He will flap his flippers with joy!!

Really helping with practice

Really enjoying my purchase.

ありがとう!I'm thrilled you like Makoto! We are constantly improving (I hope) the monthly e-zine. We'll have more value bundles in the future too. If you have any suggestions for improvement (what you liked; what wasn't so helpful), I'd love to hear them.

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.
