The Department of East Asian Studies welcomes students, who are currently enrolled in Japanese language courses or who wish to enhance their language acquisition to the Tadoku Club. 多読（たどく）means extensive reading in Japanese. Extensive reading is considered one of the best ways to help students improve their reading skills. Numerous studies show that extensive reading not only increases reading speed and acquisition of vocabulary, but also improves overall language proficiency and motivation. In each session, you will read books (made especially for this purpose) at your own pace without using a dictionary.
You can also check out some of the books we will be reading at the following site: (ebooks-NYU library). We will also be using other books.
If you are interested, please contact Kayo Nonaka.
