皆さん、

Today i’ll like to introduce this book.

Title of book: 新完全マスター文法N3
ISBN number: 9784883196104

For those who like the Kanzen Master series a lot, the N3 文法 version is out. Published in Aug 2012. I think i’ll be using this for my N3 prep class.
Although i don’t really like the book having Chinese and English explanations….. Kinokuniya Singapore doesn’t carry this book yet…
I’ll be going to Japan next month, so if anyone wants to get a copy of the book, i’ll be willing to get it for you at a small transport fee.

Book recommendation: 精准命中! 日本語能力試験 N2模擬試験

皆さん、

おはようございます。今日はこの本を紹介したいと思います。

タイトル: 精准命中! 日本語能力試験 N2模擬試験
ISBN番号: 978-986-864-3970
値段: $24.99 (シンガポールドル)

This book was written 2 Japanese teachers based in Taiwan. Generally for Taiwan books, sometimes i realized that they write out of syllabus or too hard. So usually i will take extra effort (4 hours to browse the book to confirm that the book isn’t too hard or too easy. I think these 2 Japanese teachers have done it properly. However, i think the listening speed wasn’t done to the actual N2 standard. The recordings seemed to be done by Taiwanese, which i will call the school and get it confirmed. I still recommend all to get other books published in Japan for the actual N2 listening speed. I think Kinokuniya @ Liang Court has this book. Bugis doesn’t have this book(according to Bookweb). Orchard’s one is out cos i think i bought the last copy.

EDIT: Called the school to confirm that the recordings are done by Japanese natives.
Try one mp3 and listen for yourself.

The knowledge inside this book is superb, of course the price is superb too (^_^). In Japan, this book is selling for 3200 yen (50 Sing dollars)? So i am sure this book is more expensive here in our Japanese bookstores.
