[N5] ゆいさんの一日

In this short story we get to know Yui, who hurries to get to her Japanese class on time.

Although this little writing project by Elaine Yan is rather short, I believe it’s an amazing example how even a short essay for your Japanese class can become a valuable little reading resource for others.

With the simple sentences, familiar vocabulary and illustrations to explain the plot, it’s great for readers who are not yet at an N5 reading comprehension, but still want to experience reading in Japanese.

This story about Yui is part of the Smith College’s Tadoku Project, in which language students can publish their own stories in Japanese. I’ve written about the short manga 黒子(くろこ)from this project before.

Length: 11 pages
