Japanese Reading Comprehension for Beginners is the kind of a study aid we’ve been missing for a long time: a book to practice reading in Japanese for absolute beginners. As soon as you know hiragana and katakana you can start reading!
The book features 120 different types of texts, each accompanied with one-two comprehension exercises and audio material for part of them (audio files download instructions are provided inside.) You will find social media posts, emails, letters, articles, essays, bulletin boards… You can read one text per day, as suggested – it should only take 10 minutes – or go at your own pace.
Studying begins with very short texts and exercises that will allow you to get used to the very concept of reading Japanese alphabets itself, as well as learn new words, and ends with texts a few paragraphs long, similar to those that appear on exams – Japanese Reading Comprehension for Beginners will help you prepare for JLPT N5 and N4 levels.
