NEWLY REVISED and EXPANDED [March 2013]Includes FREE MP3s of all example sentences. Beginning to learn a new language can be a lot of fun. But it is important to begin your learning with structure. You don't want to end up knowing random or useless information that will sap your motivation once the initial enthusiasm fades. This book is intended to introduce important grammatical points in a structured, bite-sized way. We will introduce only the most useful grammatical points ordered by how common they are in beginner level textbooks. It is not, however, designed to replace a textbook or even a detailed grammar book. As a result, we spend a little time explaining each grammatical note. Each of the one hundred lessons is designed to be completed in less than ten minutes. You won't master a grammatical point in one ten-minute sitting. You will, however, become familiar with something previously unknown. The next time you review that lesson or run across it in your textbook, you will feel like you are meeting someone you have seen or even met before. In fact, that is a good way to look at it. We believe that learning complex and previously unknown things like grammar is best done in stages: Stranger (This is an unknown grammatical point.) The acquaintance (You've heard of it, but you don't know much about its function or usage.) Friend (You know a good deal about its function and usage, but may not be able to use it smoothly in conversation.) Best Friend (You have mastered the grammatical point and you are able to use it correctly at will.) Please note: you will receive a zip file which must be opened with a PC or Mac. Later, you can send the files to your phone or tablet.

Yonde Miyo~! Volume 3 - Short and Fun Japanese Stories in Hiragana and Basic Kanji [Paperback]
Yonde Miyo~! Volume 3 - Short and Fun Japanese Stories in Hiragana and Basic Kanji [Paperback] $19.00
NOTE: The digital version is found in the digital only Beri- Beri- Shoshinsha bundle.  Have you only recently learned hiragana but need practice? Or perhaps, your hiragana is no problem, but you want to build your hiragana and kanji reading comprehension? This new collection of stories is here to the rescue! Read real Japanese—beginner level but not boring Japanese! You won't find the Japanese version of Dick and Jane, but you will find stories written for adults. Enjoy reading flash fiction, super short essays, and funny stories of common mistakes made by learners of Japanese.Best of all, the only requirement is that you can read hiragana and have a very basic understanding of Japanese. Vocabulary and grammar will be defined and explained.   The format is a little different from our other more advanced readers. The idea is for the reader to read the entire story three times. Each page will have a sentence or two in hiragana (with spaces between words for you to see “words” instead of syllables) at the top and that same content in full Japanese (with furigana—small hiragana over kanji) at the bottom. The middle will have the glossary and grammatical explanations. Lastly, the story is presented in Japanese without furigana. See if you can read it after going through the previous two versions and explanations. If you have just learned hiragana, you may want to listen to the sound file while reading the hiragana section to practice correct pronunciation. If you have studied Japanese a bit longer, you may want to start with the bottom version and take note of the glossary for understanding.The glossary will have the word as it appears in the story, but it will also give the “dictionary” form so you can look the word up further. Having fun while learning a language is a great way to increase motivation. With increased motivation, you are less likely to skip a day's study. A skipped day can quickly become a lost week and then a lost… forever. And so, we hope you will have as much fun reading these stories as we had writing them. This is a physical paperback which will be shipped to you. You'll also receive the digital files for no extra charge immediately after ordering.
