Nihongo through Newspaper Articles












As this book aims to provide a comprehensive approach, put each section to practical use in the following ways.

1First, try to read as much of an article as you can without referring to the vocabulary list.
2Next, answer the fill-in-the-blank exercises that come after the vocabulary list.
3Once you have grasped the gist of a passage, check the meaning of words and phrases in the vocabulary list, read the passage again and make certain you completely understand it, down to the smallest detail.
4The con-tent of the TV and radio news passages is the same as that of the newspaper passages, so if you listen after reading the main passage, the CDs should be relatively easy to comprehend. On the other hand, you can listen first and then read the passage. Either way is fine.
5The dialogues are examples of how you can use the information gained in the newspaper and radio and TV news passages in conversation. The first dialogue is in the polite form, between acquaintances, and the second is an informal conversation between people in a closer relationship.
