In time, these lessons and "stubs" will be migrated to the Buzzwords site.

Japanese Literature

Lesson from the Shenzhen Daily:

Practice the conversation; study the vocabulary; then discuss the questions with a friend in English.

1. Akemi speaks of "abridged versions" of classics. What does "abridged" mean? Do you think it's OK to read classics in "abridged versions"?
2. Which sounds more interesting to you, "The Tale of Genji" or "The Pillow Book of Sei Shonagon"? Why?
3. Genji is described as "the perfect guy." What do you think the perfect guy or girl would be like today?
