Publisher's Summary

Introducing nine captivating short stories to learn Japanese (including line by line translations to English).
Are you bored of the traditional methods people tell you to use to learn Japanese? Are you bored of all those dusty grammar books that pile up making everything look so hard? What if we told you there's a better, more enjoyable way to learn Japanese and grow your vocabulary exponentially? Well, guess what - there is! The best way to learn Japanese is by listening to short stories.
The problem? You might feel like you don't know where to start, or you may feel lost trying to understand whatever pops up on the Internet. And that's exactly why we created this book.
Short Stories + Foreign Language = Faster Learning
We know how difficult it may seem to learn a foreign language from scratch, let alone trying to put all that learning into practice. But what you might not realize is that it's fairly easy to fully incorporate the essentials of a language once you frame that learning into a certain context (for example, a short story). Short stories allow you to put what you've learned so far into practice, allowing you to expand your vocabulary quickly, make sense of ideas, understand new concepts, and overall get a better grasp of the Japanese language. Short stories work because they eliminate the stress of forcing yourself to learn. Instead, when you listen to the nine captivating short stories we've prepared for you, you will learn Japanese without even realizing you're learning it! Your goal is to simply focus on a single story at a time. The stories consist of multiple genres, including adventure, fantasy, mystery, and romance, just to name a new. We wanted these stories to be fun, interesting, and appealing, motivating you to keep on listening to find out what happens next. That's the very best way to learn, don't you think?

I want more!

I had purchased both the audio book and the kindle version to listen to and read along with simultaneously. I have been looking for the opportunity to both listen to a native speaker while reading text at the same time. It’s a great step to learning the language and I hope there are more audiobooks similar to this one coming out.
