This collection of short stories is designed around the concept of learning languages through reading and communication, rather than through inneffective rote memorization of artificial and complex grammar rules. By acquiring Japanese through stories, learners develop a deeper understanding of the nuances of the language as they can see everything in context. This is the first of this series, and is designed for absolute beginners.
