Every idiom is followed by an example sentence and a paragraph or two explaining the context and usage. Each idiom will have three sound files associated with it. The MP3s are all recorded by native voice actors and actresses. The first sound file is the idiom itself. The second is the example sentence. The third sound file has the idiom, an English translation, the idiom repeated slowly, and the example sentence with translation. Try to mimic the Japanese speakers in sound and presentation. We highly recommend knowing hiragana before tackling this book. Every kanji here has furigana (small hiragana) over it to aid reading. If you do not yet know hiragana, please check out our Hiragana book: “Hiragana, the Basics of Japanese.”

Nihongo Notes Vol. 1: Language and Culture - The Japan Shop
Nihongo Notes Vol. 1: Language and Culture $ 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.

There are also individual chapter list MP3s which combine the Japanese vocabulary word, the example sentence, and then the English translation.

I am a firm believer in setting goals. It is the quickest way to make progress.   Unfortunately, with goal-setting, there is usually the problem of maintaining motivation. By paying money and making plans to sit in a test (usually) in a different city; however, you are making a major investment of time and money. There are few pressures in life that can motivate better than time or money. That’s why we always recommend any serious student of Japanese to sign up and study for the JLPT.   Japanese Vocabulary for JLPT N4 covers all the vocabulary needed to pass the Japanese Language Proficiency Test level N4. This is the easiest of the test levels and is suitable for beginners who have mastered hiragana.   Add the 1,200+ MP3s to your MP3 player, iPhone, or computer and listen while studying the book. Compilation MP3 files of each chapter's list are also included. These have each word followed by the example sentence for sequential learning.
