<b>A haunting account of teaching English to the sons of North Korea's ruling class during the last six months of Kim Jong-il's reign</b><br />  <br /> Every day, three times a day, the students march in two straight lines, singing praises to Kim Jong-il and North Korea: <i>Without you, there is no motherland. Without you, there is no us.</i> It is a chilling scene, but gradually Suki Kim, too, learns the tune and, without noticing, begins to hum it. It is 2011, and all universities in North Korea have been shut down for an entire year, the students sent to construction fields—except for the 270 students at the all-male Pyongyang University of Science and Technology (PUST), a walled compound where portraits of Kim Il-sung and Kim Jong-il look on impassively from the walls of every room, and where Suki has gone undercover as a missionary and a teacher. Over the next six months, she will eat three meals a day with her young charges and struggle to teach them English, all under the watchful eye of the regime. <br /><br />Life at PUST is lonely and claustrophobic, especially for Suki, whose letters are read by censors and who must hide her notes and photographs not only from her minders but from her colleagues—evangelical Christian missionaries who don't know or choose to ignore that Suki doesn't share their faith. As the weeks pass, she is mystified by how easily her students lie, unnerved by their obedience to the regime. At the same time, they offer Suki tantalizing glimpses of their private selves—their boyish enthusiasm, their eagerness to please, the flashes of curiosity that have not yet been extinguished. She in turn begins to hint at the existence of a world beyond their own—at such exotic activities as surfing the Internet or traveling freely and, more dangerously, at electoral democracy and other ideas forbidden in a country where defectors risk torture and execution. But when Kim Jong-il dies, and the boys she has come to love appear devastated, she wonders whether the gulf between her world and theirs can ever be bridged.<br /><br /> <i> Without You, There Is No Us</i> offers a moving and incalculably rare glimpse of life in the world's most unknowable country, and at the privileged young men she calls "soldiers and slaves."

The Japanese people have an extensive range of customs, rituals, and forms of etiquette for all aspects of their lives. These forms of etiquette are not only interesting for non-Japanese but also open our eyes to the fact that despite the huge strides Japan has made in terms of modern-day advancement in technologies, the age-old customs and traditions are still a deeply-embedded part of their society.<br /><br />They revere and respect their customs, traditions, and other forms of etiquette and expect people visiting from other countries to do so too. Similarly, the Japanese people are equally respectful of other people’s traditions, customs, and etiquette and work hard to understand them so that they don’t make a mistake when they visit other countries.<br /><br />Taking a page out of their etiquette book, it makes a lot of sense to learn about the Japanese forms of etiquette so that we can be prepared to do the right thing at the right time in the right place when we travel to Japan. Moreover, knowing about the culture of another country is a fabulous way of opening our minds and celebrating world differences.<br /><br />With the etiquette tips in this book, you will be able to handle the expectations of the courteous and polite people of Japan in terms of good behaviour and manners. Most of the people are happy to welcome guests and tourists with open arms and will be even more obliged to do their best to make your stay in their country happy and worthwhile if you show an effort to replicate their etiquette norms and requirements.<br /><br /><b>What are you waiting for?

After half a decade in Japan, Garett Wilson thought that nothing could shock him anymore... until he started a new job and a new life at a high school in downtown Tokyo. Here he discovered the real Japan, not the version sold to tourists, and realized that it was far more thrilling, heartbreaking, and beautiful than anything he had ever experienced.<br /><br />Over the course of one year in Tokyo, Garett navigates the perilous waters of 21st-century Japan, where love and laughter are as common as violence and tragedy. From love hotels to sumo, yakuza gangs to hostess bars, and a Shinto wedding to a KFC Christmas, discover what Tokyo is really like for its 38 million inhabitants.<br /><br />A travel book, a tale of sex and romance, and a love letter to a maddening, wonderful place, Lost in Tokyo provides a new perspective on living, working and playing in the world's most vibrant city.

Half of the people who see the title to this book might be thinking, <i>"Learn Japanese by watching anime? What a load of crap!"</i> Such a thing certainly sounds like a crazy pipe dream that a great number of anime fans share. And if you watch anime with English subtitles like most people, Japanese fluency will remain merely a dream. You will not learn Japanese outside a small handful of basic words. <br /><br />If you turned off the English subtitles, however, you would be taking your first steps towards a successful Japanese language learning program. Of course, this is not the only step either. The following steps contained within this book describe a fascinating process of how anyone can learn Japanese to fluency through the material he or she watches and reads for fun.<br /><br />Inside of this book is a system that allows you to learn and never forget thousands of new Japanese vocabulary words, phrases, grammar points, and kanji that you encounter from any Japanese language source of your choice. This includes anime, manga, dramas, movies, videos, music, video games, and visual novels.<br /><br />This is a book dedicated to answering the question of how to speak Japanese fluently by extensively reading and listening to native Japanese language materials. If you are looking for a Japanese language textbook that teaches Japanese grammar, vocabulary, and kanji, you will not find it here. But if you are struggling with the question of how to learn Japanese or if you have trouble remembering the Japanese language that you have learned, why not try something new and different?<br /><br />Use this book to help you learn Japanese language from Dragon Ball, Sword Art Online, Naruto, One Piece, Fairy Tail, One Punch Man, Death Note, Bleach, Attack on Titan, and more!
