Hello all! I have been struggling to improve my reading comprehension recently. I’ve found many resources that offer free Japanese reading practice for low-level readers, but not many that offer solutions and explain why they mean what they mean. This has been tough for me, because I often find that while I can understand each individual word, verb tense, etc., I struggle to break them into clauses & understand how the particles interact. “What is the ‘ni’ referring to? Why are they using ‘de’ here?”
My most recent exercise has been to play through Pokemon Blue in Japanese using the English script as reference. It’s fun, but it still became frustrating because a) there are often discrepancies or shortcuts taken in the English version, and b) just having the translation doesn’t actually explain the parts of the grammar that are confusing.
Does anyone have recommendations for resources that let me practice reading, but also give and explain the solution?
