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.
