Japanese Extensive Reading 日本語の多読: The Happy Prince 幸せな王子

Last night I read the story of the Happy prince!


It’s from the new レベル別日本語多読ライブラリー (Different level Japanese Extensive Reading Library) graded readers that I picked up in Tokyo two weeks ago! I was so happy to get my hands on more graded readers for Japanese. I feel more motivated than ever to keep on reading and getting awesome at Japanese. Even though my language lust drags me in other directions.

I don’t need a dictionary for these things! I’m so happy!

The Happy Prince is a story by Oscar Wilde.

The book is from level 3 for beginning intermediate classes. (初中級)

Level 3 books have:

文字数/1話 : 2500 – 5000
Character count per Story: 2500 – 5000

語彙数: 800
Vocabulary count: 800 (different words)

This book has 23 pages.

I’m going to keep a consecutive daily page count, since I think this is much more important than a monthly page count.
