Learning Japanese :Roald Dahl

Thing is…my Japanese is not briliant. I wish it was… and often I struggle to read difficult Kanji because I stopped learning them in elementary school. Just like I encourage M to start speaking English… I know that I should really focus on catching up with Japanese as much as I can because after all I am in Japan.

So… at the book shop, I came across Japanese version of Roald Dahl The Witches. I recommend Roald Dahl books at work to children but to be honest I have only read Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. It is hypocritical that I have never read the book yet I am recommending it to children… so I decided to do something about it. I began reading Roald Dhahl The Witches in Japanese. So far, it is pretty good boook. I am surprised that I have never read it before but ….I think it will help me brush up my Japanese once I start reading Japanese regulary and reading the books I am recommending will help me gain knowledge of the stories. Reading is essential in learning a language I believe so here it goes ~ !

Let’s be honest: Roald Dahl books don’t really need illustrations. The famed British author was such a visual and visceral writer that you could just close your eyes and see Matilda skipping off to school or the Fantastic Mr. Fox

    Good luck! I find reading a great way to supplement Japanese language study: you can take it with you anywhere, read when you’re in the mood, and the story’s always interesting!
