So, I read through an article on NHK News Web Easy site.
This site is super awesome!
It has furigana and simplified Japanese for foreigners who are learning Japanese. It’s much better than the news for kids website because I can read it extensively without the use of a dictionary.
After reading and article, I listened to the newscast and I found that I could understand it quite easily.
Also there is a link to the real article on the NHK News Web site.
