The USJETAA Japanese Reading Group helps advanced beginner and intermediate level students improve their reading skills. Each month we will look at a short reading from Aozora Bunko, a repository of public domain literature. Participants should attempt to do the reading on their own and come to the meeting with any questions. We will spend the meeting each month reading the assignment sentence by sentence to understand how the Japanese is working.

In August, we'll be reading Nakaya Ukichiro's シカゴの雉子 (Chicago Pheasant) (https://www.aozora.gr.jp/cards/001569/files/59806_74210.html). Nakaya was a physicist known for his work with artificial snowflakes in addition to being an essayist.
