About This Class

In this course, I introduce you to one of the most famous tales in Japan "Momotarou (ももたろう)".

I read the tale in Japanese with Japanese subtitles and English subtitles.

With this course, you can improve:

  • your listening skills in Japanese
  • your reading skills in Japanese
  • your vocabulary in Japanese

Also, this tale is simply fun to read/listen to, so you can learn Japanese while actually having fun!

But, you at least need to be able to read Hiragana (Click Here For My HIRAGANA Course!) to fully enjoy this awesome tale.

Still, anyone who speaks English can enjoy the story itself EVEN IF YOU DO NOT KNOW ANY JAPANESE!

Hope you enjoy it!

- Max
