I’m still digesting Episode 1. Slow learner. But what I’ve read so far is entertaining and educational. The haiku were a nice touch. Yeah, just kill the bird! See where that attitude gets you! I print the script and put the audio on a loop and take both with me on neighborhood walks. I can shadow the audio loud enough to help with pronunciation and, of course, learn some new vocabulary. Back home, I practice writing the kanji. Then I’ll repeat that for the next episodes. There’s a wealth of material in these books!
I'm a great fan on history and what a better way than to learn a language by reading up on the history of the country? These are a little advanced for me and the going is slow, but I'm enjoying them nonetheless and learning something new everyday.
They're a bit above my level, but I'm having a great time reading them nonetheless (I'm just going a bit slower). The format is great, the texts are short and informative, there's a lot of explanations for vocabulary and phrases.
Great books and great content. All in one history and culture, plus it's very helpful to have the vocabulary and definitions at hand. I love it!
Great collection of readers. To learn about Japanese history whilst learning the language is very handy! Gives a much more rounded understanding of Japanese language & culture.
