Easy to read manga for Japanese beginners – Vol. 01
I was on a train from Narita Airport to Tokyo when I noticed that everyone seemed to be staring at me. The Japanese people sitting in front of me were absolutely fascinated by the sight of a foreigner reading manga. They marveled at a foreigner reading manga, and wondered how I had studied to achieve this kind of reading level.

Comics are easy for children to read since there are plenty of pictures and much less text than a regular book.

I had my ups and downs and even took a break from studying for a couple of months last year. It became just too frustrating and was more like an everyday burden than fun. But this all changed when I booked my flight to Toyko last October Now I had a good reason to start learning again and knew that even the slightest knowledge of the language would come in very handy on my visit in February That was motivation enough to keep me studying on a daily basis. Many people obviously want to learn a new language for the primary reason to speak it in its specific country.
