Level 4 volume 2 of the popular Japanese Graded Readers series is a boxed-set of 5 booklets (each containing about 38 pages) featuring various articles and stories on Japanese culture and daily life. The CD audio companion includes the full-text read by Japanese native speakers.
Designed for students with a proficiency level equivalent to Japanese Langauge Proficiency Test Level N2 and N3 (see chart below). The set of stories utilizes a vocabulary of about 1,300 words. The stories range in length from about 5,000 to 10,000 words. The grammar points include: causative form, causative/passive form, ~sou, ~rashii, ~koto ni suru/naru, etc.
As you can see from the images below, the stories are beautifully illustrated, and furigana (small kana written above kanji to show the pronunciation) are included on all the kanji.
Two of the booklets in this set include content suggested by White Rabbit Press: "Tokyo wo Arukou!" and "Sanoku Yen Jiken".
When reading Japanese Graded Readers we suggest:
- Start at an easy level
- Read without using a dictionary
- Skip any parts you don't understand
- If you hit too many roadblocks, stop and try a lower level book.
There are two audio tracks which did not fit on the included CD. You can download it from our Free Downloads section.
