Resources for Japanese Language Learners: Tadoku 多読

This guide introduces students learning Japanese, at undergrad and graduate levels, to resources at the library and online that will help them with their language study.

Tadoku at Penn

Welcome to "tadoku" 多読 classes at Penn! You can find out more information about this kind of class, also known as "extensive reading," from your Japanese language instructor. Many language classes pay a visit to our East Asia Seminar Room for some reading time in-class and you can come to the library to use the tadoku books any time. Make sure you do not take the tadoku readers out of the Seminar Room! We also have other books to help you in your tadoku efforts that you can check out of the library. Plus, ebook versions of the readers are coming soon.

You can also check out reviews of some tadoku books by students at the Japanese language program page!
