Publisher's Summary

For high-beginner to low-intermediate learners.

Master Japanese honorifics in the next 30 days, with this innovative, story-based immersion method. Just listen to one chapter per day, complete the exercises, and watch as your use of honorifics improves your confidence in Japanese!

Keigo is what separates the average Japanese learner from culturally competent speakers, and using it earns you respect from Japanese natives. However, native speakers don’t learn honorifics through rules and memorisation, and neither should you. This audiobook helps you master the most subtle rules of keigo naturally so you can express yourself confidently in Japanese like the polite and respectful person you are!

With 30-Day Mastery: Confident Keigo you'll learn through example and context, just like native speakers do! The magic of learning through story is that your main focus is actually not on memorising complex rules...you concentrate on understanding the fundamentals and on enjoying the story! As you're listening to the story, you will find that different types of honorifics, and the situations in which they are used, will begin to make more logical sense, thus making your learning more organic. It doesn't happen right away - in fact it may take a couple of weeks for you to feel the real effects. But by the end of this audiobook, you'll have a native-like command of keigo that will amaze you and your friends!

In this story, you will follow Yuri who, like most new graduates, is excited to start her working career. However, upon joining a technology company in Tokyo, she quickly starts to learn some harsh truths of hectic corporate life in Japan. Will she have what   it takes to succeed? Take a peek behind the curtain into daily working life in a typical modern Japanese company and follow her progress.
