Stories Bundle 2 First Four Titles

I am a retired upper beginner hoping to advance to intermediate eventually but not beyond that. I do not study full time but do it more as a hobby. For the last two years I have really focused on learning 2200 Kanji including all the Joyo Kanji, more so than studying vocabulary, grammar, audio and reading. I have studied them everyday without fail. Because I now have such a good foundation with the Kanji it is more enjoyable to study the other aspects of the language found in these files, even the reviews of the Kanji.

I really appreciate how all of these bundles including the newly released Stories Bundle 2 help me learn. Every aspect of the learning process is provided right in these text and sound files. I typically study at my computer with the pdf and sound files.

These tools really are useful!

Thank you! I had a similar experience. The more kanji I learned, the more interesting other aspects of Japanese became.

BTW, I'm not sure why '2200 Kanji' was bleeped out ([****]). Sorry about that.
