Book recommendation: 日本人の心がわかる日本語 (Japanese Words to Understand the Japanese Mind)

皆さん、

こんにちは。 Just back from my awful Japan trip… Typhoons, bad weather etc. Anyway, today i would like to introduce a book which i got hold of when i was in Japan.

Title: 日本人の心がわかる日本語 (Japanese Words to Understand the Japanese Mind)
ISBN: 978-487-217-7862
Price: 1600 yen

This book talks about stuff which Japanese people are mindful of, like Shame, Inside and Outside, etc. So for those who wants to know more about how Japanese people think, this book is for you. Unfortunately, this book is fully written in Japanese. Would only advise students with N3 level onwards to read this book.

My scary yet precious Japanese library

Below are some pictures from my scary yet precious Japanese library. I strongly believe that for a student to excel in Japanese language studies, the teacher has the responsibility and the part to play to assist the student to get good materials. Of course, having good materials does not mean you will pass JLPT. It all boils down to yourself. If you work hard, you will see the fruits of the labour. For all readers info, for each book, i spent about 3-4 hours reading through the book and ensuring that the books are good enough to be used by any individual. =)
