How Intermediate Japanese Short Stories works: · Each chapter possesses a funny, interesting and/or thought-provoking story based on real-life situations, allowing you to learn about the Japanese culture. · Having trouble understanding Japanese characters? No problem – despite being Intermediate Japanese, we have still included a romanization to help guide you through your learning process, just like in the beginner stories! · The summaries follow the story: a synopsis in Japanese and in English of what you just read, both to review the lesson and for you to see if you understood what the tale was about. Use them if you’re having trouble. · At the end of those summaries, you’ll be provided with a list of the most relevant vocabulary involved in the lesson, as well as slang and sayings that you may not have understood at first glance! Don’t get lost trying to understand or pronounce it all, either, as all of the vocabulary words are Romanized for your ease of learning! · Finally, you’ll be provided with a set of tricky questions in Japanese, allowing you the chance to prove that you learned something in the story. Don’t worry if you don’t know the answer to any – we will provide them immediately after, but no cheating!
