Moons, months and seasons
(1992)
This 'pre-intermediate' level reader is intended to bridge the gap between instructing non-native speakers in the Japanese language and familiarising them with Japanese culture and its customs.
In each section the Japanese passage is complemented by brief, themed cultural introduction to Japanese life in English, with Japanese-English vocabulary lists for each passage appended.
The language used is a simplified version of everyday speech.
