John rides the bus everyday. One day, he meets an old lady who sees his fashionably ripped jeans and expresses comical pity for him, unaware that the distressed look is intentional. Another day, John falls asleep in the bus and misses his stop. As a result, he arrives late to school.
I highly recommend this book. It is heart-warming and moving. It reminded me of my own childhood memories. We learned most vocabularies and grammar appeared in the book, so it is not hard to read at all for me. it is also a good chance to review what we’ve covered in the class.
A girl takes a ride in a taxi and later turns out to be a ghost. She tricks the taxi driver into dropping her off at her house and then runs inside without paying. the driver waits outside for her to come back and pay him but she never does. He eventually knocks on the door only to find out that the girl had died in a bicycle accident.
This book is accessible to a Japanese 111 student if not a Japanese 110 student. It takes a bit of intuition to piece together some of the story but it was certainly original.
この本はおもしろいと思います。エミさんとニナさんゆかたを買 ってお ぼんおどりに行きました。かんじとたん語がかんたんです。I really loved the art style, its simple and cute. There were a couple of words that I could not recognize but its still understandable through context. There were also some unfamiliar kanji but they were accompanied by the hiragana. Overall, I highly recommend to level 0 readers.
The book doesn’t have difficult words and perfectly explains the new words with 可愛い drawings. Also, the plot features fairy tale exploration though it’s not fairy tale. I love it. I strongly recommend it to 一年生。The book looks so good and I think it can be published for kids and of course for Japanese learners.
I would personally recommend this book to other first-year Japanese students. The story is simple and cute. And so are the characters. However, I do wish there were more pictures just to split up the text a bit more.
I read 海の旅行, An Ocean Trip. The illustrations were very cute! Seven is very excited and animated, and it made reading the book fun. It was easy to understand the unknown kanji and tango. Overall, I enjoyed it!
I would recommend this book to other Japanese 1st year students, because of the simple grammar and easy to follow plotline. Although, more advanced students could also enjoy it, thanks to how good the pictures are!
This book introduces history of sushi, history of sushi and simple ways to make sushi. とても面白いです！I learned how to eat sushi in a correct way. Although I eat a lot of sushi and love sushi, I didn’t know how to eat it appropriately until I read this book.
Vocabulary and sentence structures are a little difficult for Japanese beginners, because it contains a lot of kanji (while it is easy to understand for Chinese speakers). But I think 日本語一年生 can understand the content with these cute pictures.
この本はおもしろくてかわいいです。男の子はやさしいです。This book is very cute and shows a boy’s various activities during his vacation. The drawings are colorful and the writing is at a good beginner level of someone just learning Japanese.
I recommend this book if you want to practice with more vocab and grammars structures outside of what Genki teaches so it can be more real world applicable. This book is definitely helpful to those taking first year Japanese and is at a beginner level. The story is very easy to follow. Even if some words were not present in the Genki textbook, this book helps the reader inference them.
この 本 は たのしくて おもしろい です 。難しくないです。とても つまらくないです。よんで ください。でも語い は ちょっと むずかしい です。
The book was an amazing and funny read. I would recommend this book to those taking JPN 110 , or have very little exposure in the language. I loved reading this book. The story was colorful. I wished there was a sequel to this book. The vocabulary might be slightly higher than what we have learnt, but the grammar is very easy to understand. Please do read this book. It will definitely make you laugh.
