"There is a growing number of people who, once they have passed the elementary levels of Japanese and are able to carry on everyday conversations, have stopped studying due to various reasons such as schedule conflicts with their jobs, only to find that they have trouble improving their linguistic abilities. The mother in the comic strip of this book is precisely one such person. Unlike her two daughters who have entered a Japanese primary school and are fluent in Japanese, the mother, with a busy work schedule at a foreign-affiliated company and English as her native language, has found that her environment is not conducive to the learning of the Japanese language, despite the fact that she now lives in Japan.

Many people who successfully pass Level 3 of the Japanese Language Proficiency Test give up on their studies because they find the jump to Level 2 to be too difficult.
