Intermediate/advanced study resource for increasing comprehension of words that appear in the news
This book provides a shortcut to boosting your understanding of “news NIHONGO” by introducing you to words and expression patterns used in newspaper and television news. The words and expressions are studied by reading numerous example sentences that present typical methods of expression.
The news stories cover a wide range of themes that are frequent topics of discussion in business and everyday life, and are sorted into several subject areas. The stories do not have to be studied in a specific order, so you can start with the ones that interest you. This book lends itself well to both classroom learning and self-study.
Also included are five Nihon Keizai Shimbun articles and five NHK news scripts, provided as real-life material for study.
