I live near a public library and had never really taken the time to go in and check it out.
Recently, when I was looking around, I noticed that they had an international section that had books in various different languages from around the world.
I was surprised to see that they had two full shelves with books in Japanese. They had all kinds of books ranging from self-help to famous literary works; such as “Bocchan.”
They even had children’s books in Japanese! This is a great way to improve your reading comprehension skills since there are rarely any kanji characters.
In some cases, they may also provide reference materials such as Japanese language dictionaries, books on Japanese history and even Japanese culture.
So, the next time you visit your local library, ask the staff if they provide books in other languages because you never know what you may be missing out on.
See you next Friday and happy learning!
Next Friday, we talk about how liking Japanese food can help with your speaking skills! I’m sure you have an idea how!
