Beri- Beri- Shoshinsha for Absolute Beginners of Japanese [Digital Download] $ 20.00 $ 64.87
 ➡️ How to read the eBooks in your bundle? You may need to follow the steps outlined in our eBook guide   A Digital Toolkit for (very) Beginners of Japanese with MP3 Sound Files of all the Japanese WHO IS THIS FOR? Total beginners and "eternal" beginners. Are you struggling with hiragana? Know all the kana but need to improve your reading comprehension? Our Beri- Beri- Shoshinsha beginner's bundle of digital books and resources will not only help you with those but also Japanese grammar, vocabulary, kanji, and listening comprehension.   If you have never studied a lick of Japanese, this is for you. 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 13 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? Introduction to Japanese [Exclusive to this bundle] Hiragana, the Basics of Japanese * Hiragana Worksheets [Exclusive to this bundle] Katakana, the Basics of Japanese 100 Grammar Points 100 Essential Kanji  Inazuma 1: About Japanese Pronouns Frank & the Obaasan Volume 1 [a beginning reader] Frank & the Obaasan Volume 2 [a beginning reader]  101 Japanese Set Phrases & Power Words Hiragana Readers Yondemiyo hiragana and N5 kanji readers [35 are available now--many more to come soon!] NEW! Makoto #1* Makoto #19* Japanese Sentences: Beginning Phrases  * All of the above are exclusive to this bundle except the two Makoto issues (which are also found in the Makoto value bundles Volume 1 and Volume 4) and The Hiragana, the Basics of Japanese book (which is also in our Japanese Reader Collection Bundle). 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?

With only a limited knowledge of Earth ways—and the Japanese language—Frank discovers a number of interesting things, not the least… natto.

All Japanese kanji characters have furigana (small hiragana over the kanji) 25 complete episodes. 15 from the first volume and 10 from the second.

The second story, Kobutori Jiisan, teaches that a happy disposition often leads to happy conclusions.While beginners to Japanese can get a lot from this, hiragana knowledge is required.
