The Makoto eZine is a good resource for someone like me who is not a complete beginner but still feels not ready to be intermediate. The jokes and puns of this issue are really helpful in order to acquire more vocabulary and understand the Japanese Humour. I would recommend this eZine to everyone that is in between beginner and intermediate level because it offers readings of the right level which are difficult to find both online and in stores. I purchased both a single issue and then I immediatly subscribed to the annual subscription.
