John Chapter 3: 7-8


I’m using a screenshot of a free app called “Kougou KJV” for these lessons. It contains the Japanese Kougouyaku translation and English King James Version, both of which are in the public domain. Checkout and download this great app.

Below is a link to a website with the text as well as the audio of the Gospel of John Chapter 3. Try reading the Japanese and then eventually read while listening to the audio. The plan is to  go through all of John Chapter 3 so eventually you should be able to read and listen to the entire Chapter.

Example of Decomposing a Japanese Sentence #2

I was reading through Genesis 24 and thought verse 10 might be a good example in breaking up Japanese sentences. One of the followers of the blog said it’s difficult reading Japanese because there are no spaces between words. That’s true, but there are “markers” you can look for to help break up a sentence. Also, the difference in word between Japanese and English makes reading Japanese more difficult for an English reader. I hope the video is useful.
