KOTONOHA「現代書き言葉均衡コーパス」 少納 Japanese Reading Practice For Beginners Of course, there are plenty of resource out there to help intermediate and advanced learners of Japanese to practice their reading. They can use any Japanese book, manga, blog, or website and study away to their heart’s content. For beginners, though, finding Japanese things to read that are at or around your level is a pain. There’s good reason that beginners don’t have as much to study with, though. Since it’s normally pretty hard for beginners to find reading resources (and because I get this email like every day, it seems), I thought it would be good to put together a list of resources for beginners to study with. Have fun! Japanese Children’s Newspapers You probably know about newspapers for adults, but did you know about newspapers just for children? Kodomo Asahi Heralding from the adult Asahi Shinbun comes “Kodomo Asahi,” a version of their newspaper made for children. Both are fairly basic, but of course the elementary school one is going to be a lot simpler. Visit: Kodomo Asahi

Manga ready for India debut Manga, the comic art form from Japan is slowly gaining in popularity with Indians, according to Ed Chavez, the head of Manga Comics who was here to attend the annual comic convention. With 'Chi' a lovable manga comic character for company, Chavaz took the stage at Dilli Haat, the venue of the 3rd Annual Indian Comic Con, to talk about Japanese comics in India. "We will be here in India with Manga comics very soon," said Chavez, Director Marketing of Vertical Inc, one of the leading manga publishers in the world. "Initial talks are on between different publishers," he added. Founded in 2003, the New York-based publishers Vertical, Inc. are North America's premier source for eclectic modern Japanese pop content. Beginning in late 2003, Vertical launched its first graphic novel series "Buddha". "In Japan, comics are popular as movies do their business in the US. The comics are usually written to read from from top to, bottom, to resemble the Japanese script. "I am more of a comic person.

TextFugu Online Japanese Textbook Teaching reading IS rocket science - Louisa Moats Before you start reading, and before you start writing, you’re going to learn how to pronounce nearly all the “sounds” of the Japanese language. If you can’t pronounce anything, you won’t be able to read or write anything either. If you learn how to pronounce something while you’re learning to read and write it, you’ll run into overload. By learning pronunciation first (without knowing how to read or write anything) you’re essentially breaking the process up into smaller pieces and ultimately saving yourself a lot of time. In order to learn the pronunciation, though, we’re going to use hiragana. So, let’s get going, eh? 前 →

35 widely unknown Japanese internet slang terms This recent ranking survey from goo Ranking was quite an effort to translate, a look at current net slang that are not yet widely known. Here is a related survey from a couple of years ago. Demographics Over the 5th and 6th of October 2012 1,064 members of the goo Research monitor group completed a private internet-based questionnaire. 58.2% of the sample were female, 10.5% in their teens, 13.7% in their twenties, 26.6% in their thirties, 27.6% in their forties, 11.7% in their fifties, and 9.9% aged sixty or older. Note that the score in the results refers to the relative number of votes for each option, not a percentage of the total sample. Number 16 was the first one I knew, having seen it used and explained on TV just last week! Here’s a video for number five: Ranking result Q: What current net slang do you think is not yet widely known? goo ranking,slang

Du manga japonais en Inde, grâce à l'éditeur américain Vertical Le marché du livre indien semble définitivement l'un des plus convoités. Ainsi la société Vertical Inc., et son directeur marketing, Ed Chavez, venus pour la 3e conférence autour de la BD indienne promettent des nouveautés sous peu. « Nous serons en Inde, avec des mangas, très rapidement », déclare-t-il plein d'entrain et d'allant. Parler de manga et de création japonaise en Inde n'est pas évident. Et depuis, l'éditeur est devenu la plaque incontournable en matière de manga, Seinen, mais également Jōsei. « Au Japon, les mangas sont aussi populaires que les films peuvent l'être aux États-Unis. D'ailleurs, entre les deux mondes, des passerelles de plus en plus fréquentes sont jetées, avec des adaptations qui n'en finissent plus : Spiderman, Batman, Superman et autres X-Men... la liste est longue, avec des problématiques juridiques que l'on connaît, notamment dans le cas de Superman. « Je suis une personne qui préfère les comics.
