I’m finding NHK’s News Web Easy articles are becoming much easier to read while I advance through WK and build up my grammar through regular classes (and A Dictionary of Basic Japanese Grammar). I read two articles today – one about an upcoming departure tax to be imposed on people exiting Japan that is expected to raise ¥40 billion, another about the construction of an electric subway in the Indonesian capital by a Japanese firm – and I’m sure I’ll continue reading it for a long time to come (particularly if I misunderstood either of those).
I do, however, want to ask for some non-fiction reading recommendations.
I enjoy reading opinion pieces and analyses on economics, foreign policy, history and social issues. I will soon start using NHK News Web Easy articles as a model for my own small pieces of Japanese writing on topics of interest, but it would be great to know what publications are available out there.
