Minna no Nihongo II text book is aimed at beginners and also those who aren’t complete beginners. This is perhaps, a lower-intermediate text book. This book is connected to the Minna No Nihongo I series in that this is a continuation. By using this book, you will not only build your vocabulary, but you will also build your grammar and deepen your knowledge of Japanese. Like Minna No Nihongo I, this book also contains vocabulary lists, grammar explanations and more. I have always been a fan of Minna no Nihongo from a long time ago, and so if I am asked by anyone “What beginners/lower intermediate text book do you think is the best?”, then I would always recommend this book…always!!! If you haven’t used Minna no Nihongo I, then I would suggest that you use Minna no Nihongo 1 before you use this book! Click here to read both of my reviews Minna no Nihongo I (First Review)

みんなの日本語Ⅱは初級者と中級者になったばかりの人向けです。多分、この教科書は中級者になったばかりの人向けです。この教科書はみんなの日本語Ⅰに接続する。詰まり、この教科書はみんなの日本語Ⅰに関係がある。みんなの日本語Ⅱは続きなんだから。この教科書を使うことで語彙を蓄積するだけではなく、文法も蓄積する。そして、日本語の知識が深まる。みんなの日本語Ⅰみたいにこの教科書にはいろんな語彙リストといろんな文法の説明も入ってるし。私はずっと前からみんなの日本語のファンだよ。だから、もし誰かに「初級者と中級者向けの教科書で何が一番いいと思いますか?」って聞かれたら、みんなの日本語は私のおすすめなの。いつも。みんなの日本語Ⅰを使ったことはないなら、使ったほうがいいよ!みんなの日本語Ⅱを使う前にね。みんなの日本語Ⅰのレビューを読むために、二つのリンクをクリックしてね。みんなの日本語Ⅰ(レビュー)

If there are those who read magazines, if there are those who want to read English language magazines, then there are a lot of magazines which you can choose from! London is full of magazines!!! “Marie Claire” is a good magazine which I often read. This magazine not only features various interesting articles, but it also features fashion articles; make-up articles; travel articles…it features various things! This magazine is rich in interesting articles and so I think that it will capture the interest of anyone! In August’s issue, it featured an article about Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama! Overall, if you want to practice reading in English, or else, if you want to know a good English language magazine, then see if you can buy and read Marie Claire!!! The price is I think, about £4! 🙂

世界中に日本語を勉強してる人達がいたら、この情報は貴方方向けで~す!(笑)。じゃぁ、「この教科書は何?そして、何で全て日本語?」って頭の中で言ってたら、私が答えま~す!(^_-)- 先ず、この教科書はね、基本的に、日本語の教科書だよ!初心者には全員役に立つ!初心者だけ初心者!だからこそ、日本語力に関しては、もし中級か上級だったら、この教科書が役に立たない!(>.<) 中級と上級の人達に役に立たな~い!!後で中級と上級の教科書についてレポートを書くわぁ!後でね後で!(*^_^*)

If there are people throughout the world who are studying Japanese, then this information is directed at youuu!!! lol! So, if you are saying in your head “What is this textbook? Why is it all in Japanese?”, then I will answer youuu!!! (^_-)- First of all, this textbook is basically a Japanese language book! It is useful for all beginners! Only beginners! It is for this reason that in relation to your Japanese language ability, if you are intermediate or advanced, then this textbook will not be useful! (>.<) It will not be useful for intermediate and advanced people! I will write a report on intermediate and advanced textbooks later! Later ne! (*^_^*)

教科書には色々なアクティビティーを含めるのだよ!見ての通り、全てのアクティビティーにはシンプルで叙事的なイラストが伴う!だから、読むのは楽しくなると思うわぁ!それ以外、アクティビティーは日本語力を試すよ。例えば、適当な単語か表現を文章に入れる必要がある。そして、日本語のダイアログも入ってる!ですから、日本語で読み上げることが練習できる!相手と!この教科書を使うだけで日本語で読みも書きもできる!それに、日本語が上達することが見つかると思う!(@o@)

There are a lot of activities included in this textbook! As you can see, simple and descriptive illustrations accompany all activities! This is why I think it becomes enjoyable to read! Apart from this, the activities test your Japanese language ability! For example, there is the need to insert the appropriate word or expression into a sentence! Also, Japanese language dialogues are also included!!! Therefore, you can practice reading out aloud in Japanese! With a partner! Just by using this textbook, you can write and read in Japanese! I think you will find that your Japanese will improve! (@o@)

次は、何で全て日本語?まぁ、これは黄色いみんなの日本語の相手だよ!黄色い教科書は全て英語で、赤い教科書は全て日本語だ。「もし黄色い教科書についてレポートを読みたかったら、自分のサイトで探してね!」赤い教科書を使うことでできるアクティビティー以外、もしこの教科書を黄色い教科書と一緒に使ったら、メリットが上がるよ!例えばは、黄色い教科書にある文章を日本語に訳すために、赤い教科書がチェックできる!(^ u ^) 🙂

Next, why is it all in Japanese?? Well, this is the partner of the yellow Minna no Nihongo! The yellow textbook is all in English, and the red textbook is all in Japanese! (If you would like to read the report about the yellow textbook then please search amongst my site!) Apart from the activities which you can do by using the red textbook, if you use this textbook together with the yellow textbook, the advantages are going to increase!!! For example, in order to translate sentences into Japanese which are in the yellow textbook, you can check the red textbook!!! 🙂

“Calling You きみにしか聞こえない” – Japanese Light Novel ラノべ!!!

3 Mar

I have many Japanese novels which I have to read! For now they are sleeping on my bookshelf, but when it’s reading time I am going to disturb their sleep! lol! Okay, so the light novel “Kimi Ni Shika Kikoenai” is the light novel which I have just finished reading! This light novel was written by Japanese author “Otsuichi“. Otsuichi writes novels based on the genres of horror and the supernatural! I really like his work!!! I also really like this short story!!!

私が読まなければならない多くの日本の小説を持ってる!これらが本棚で取り敢えず寝てるけど、読む時間になったら、睡眠を妨げるぜ!~!(笑)「きみにしか聞こえない」っていうラノべは私が読み終えたばかりのラノべだよ!このラノべは「乙一」っていう日本人の小説家によって書かれた。乙一はホラーとちょうじょうてきなジャンルに基づく小説を書く。彼の作品が凄く好きだ!このショートストーリーも好きだ!

So, what is the story about??? Well, if you intend to read it, I don’t want to spoil it so I will only speak for a little while! This story is a story based on the workings of the mind of a high school student named “Ryo”. Ryo has often been misunderstood by people and so she avoided interaction with them. Analysing her class mates, she noticed that all of them have mobile phones and so she felt that she too wants to buy a phone. However, because she doesn’t have any friends, she created an imaginary phone inside of her head. The phone suddenly rings, she answers it, and is surprised when she can hear a voice on the other end of the phone. A male voice. His name is Shinya. With the intention of making more friends who are like Shinya, she attempts phoning different people and becomes acquainted with a girl named Yumi. Even though Ryo doesn’t know it, she has a deep connection with both Yumi and Shinya…

この話の筋書きは何???もしこれを読むつもりだったら、台無しにしたくないので、しばらくだけ話します!この話は「りょ」っていう高校生の頭の働きに基づいた話だ。りょ は人達に誤解されることがあったので、人達と対応するのを避けた。クラスメイト解析し、全員が携帯電話を持ってることに気づいた。だからこそ、彼女も携帯電 話買いたいような気がした。しかし、フレンズはいないから、りょは頭の中で空想的な電話を創造した。急に電話が鳴り、電話に出て、電話の向こうで声が聞こえて 吃驚した!男の声が聞こえた。彼の名前は「しんや」だ。しんやみたいのフレンズをもっと作るつもりで違う人達に電話を掛けようとして、「ゆみ」っていう女の子と知り合った。りょが知らないのに、ゆみとしんやと深い繋がりがある。。。

So that I don’t spoil it, I cannot speak about this novel anymore! This light novel is the Japanese version, but I did hear that there is an English language version. However, if you can read Japanese, then read this version! 🙂

台無しにしないように、このラノべについてもう話せない!このラノべは日本語版だけどさ、英語版があるそうだ。しかし、日本語が読めたら、このバージョン読んで読んで!:)

「グラマラス」っていう雑誌は日本のファッション雑誌だ。この雑誌はね日本の青春に大人気があるけど、イギリスの青春にも人気があるかどうか分からない。。。(どこでも買えないからかも)兎に角、これは11月号だ。雑誌のフロントページに「今日着る服のことで頭はいっぱい!秋トレンド着到れ!日記」って書いてある!

The magazine “Glamorous” is a Japanese fashion magazine. This magazine is super popular amongst Japan’s youth but I’m not sure as to whether or not it is popular amongst England’s…(probably not because you cannot buy it anywhere) Anyway, this is November’s issue and on the front page it says “Your head is full of clothes which you are going to where today! A diary of Autumn’s trends!”

When I opened this magazine, I had been greeted by gorgeous fashion! Hats, coats, skirts, scarfs, boots…All pages, from the beginning until the last page, was like I had been knocked down by wonderful fashion! lol Why is it sooo beautiful! lol Actually, this magazine is overflowing with wonderful fashion! It’s full of wonderful fashion! I cannot believe it! haha! Especially these boots! If i were in Japan I would probably buy it without thinking…But, I wonder if I can walk in it…the boots seem too tall! LOL

I think this dictionary is extremely useful! It is not like an ordinary dictionary in the sense that it doesn’t just list a lot of words. The information is presented together with pictures, so as you read this book you may be nodding your head as if to say “Ahh this information has become easier to remember!”

この辞書が非常に便利だと思うよ!たくさんの言葉がリストされてなかったので、この辞書は普通の辞書じゃないわ!情報は絵画と贈呈されたので、辞書を読みながら「この情報は覚えやすくなったんだよね!」っていう風に頭を頷くかもね!

In addition, there are a lot of different topics included in this dictionary; from “People” to “Appearance”, all is included! Just by reading this book you can learn lots of new vocabulary! You will come to understand a lot of vocabulary which you probably didn’t know! A must buy!

それに、この辞書にはいろいろな話題を含めるよ!「人」や「外観」から。。。全て含める!この辞書を読めるだけで、たくさんの語彙を学ぶ事ができる!知らないかもしれない語彙がたくさん分かってくる!だから、買ってね!買わないと~~!笑!
