He can be a trickster or he can use his wisdom to get out of difficult situations. Often, the village headman or some rich but somewhat arrogant fellow thinks Kicchomu is a fool and tries to trick him and Kicchomu uses his ready wit to turn the tables. In the first tale in this volume, Kicchomu's attempt to heed sage advice during a village crisis yields unexpected and comical results. In the other adventure, his cunning ruse involving a seemingly magical horse leaves the wealthy headman utterly speechless. 112 Pages For Upper Beginners to Intermediates Sound file recordings of story both slow and normal speed for both stories Anki deck with all the vocabulary in the stories Recommended for upper beginners and lower intermediates of Japanese.

Perfetto! Allora questa raccolta di brevi storie giapponesi è per te! Divertiti a conoscere i racconti popolari e la cultura giapponese mentre migliori il tuo vocabolario, i kanji, la grammatica e le tue capacità di ascolto. E’ ormai provato che il modo più immediato ed efficace per imparare il vocabolario è, molto semplicemente, la lettura! Leggere, leggere, leggere… per imparare! Leggendo, non solo si è più propensi a cogliere le parole che ci interessano, ma le si impara anche nel contesto nel quale esse si trovano: questi libri ti saranno d’aiuto per il raggiungimento di questo fondamentale obiettivo! Questi pacchetti di libri sono stati pensati per i principianti di livello “base” e “base avanzato” del giapponese, ma anche gli utenti intermedi potrebbero trovarli comunque molto utili. Ti consigliamo di imparare l'hiragana prima di avvicinarti a questi libri, ma abbiamo comunque incluso furigana (i piccoli kana posti sopra i kanji) in modo da essere sicuri di leggere con la pronuncia corretta. Se sei veramente agli inizi e ti avvicini ai sillabari giapponesi per la primissima volta, dai uno sguardo alla nostra raccolta di libri per principianti assoluti all’indirizzo: https://www.thejapanshop.com/products/beri-beri-shoshinsha-beginners-bundle-digital-download In questi libri troverai diverse versioni per ogni storia: la storia con ogni parola del vocabolario ben definita e spiegata; la sezione contenente i principali schemi grammaticali incontrati nella storia; la storia unicamente in giapponese naturale (kanji con furigana inclusi); una semplice traduzione in italiano della storia presentata; Puoi provare a leggere prima la storia in giapponese naturale. Oppure, se sei un principiante assoluto, potrebbe esserti maggiormente d’aiuto esaminare prima il vocabolario: in qualunque modo tu lo faccia, questi libri offrono diversi modi per leggere, ascoltare e imparare. Sono inclusi, senza alcun costo aggiuntivo, i file MP3 di ogni storia: uno con lettura lenta e semplice da seguire e un secondo con lettura a velocità normale. Troverete i link per il download dei file nelle ultime pagine di ogni libro, qualora non li aveste trovati al momento dell’acquisto.
