Hello, am interested to learn basic conversational Japanese. I was introduced this school, Pyaess. Is anyone learning there? Hope to hear some reviews. Thank you

Hello guys, can anyone recommend some good textbooks for N3 Grammar and Vocab? I will be taking N3 this December and would like to start preparing for it.

Are the Nihongo So-Matome series good?
White Rabbit Press The Complete Set: Nihongo So-matome JLPT N3

I am looking for something that gives detailed explanation with various examples.

dimitri_can - Thanks for that image posting with Kanji.

Do you know of any children books with furigana that's affordable? The ones at Kino seemed really expensive. About S$17 per book?

Well for a start I wasn't asking you to -browse- the entire section and I simply pointed out a single book of 5 mock tests. Just ignore the lines of chinese. You don't really need instructions the test structure is quite standard especially if you look at the JLPT website haha. If you can't read the Japanese instructions then lol you probably aren't ready for the mock test.
I looked through the books briefly, and pointed out that I saw passages of Chinese at the top of a few pages, didn't need to "browse the entire section" for that. Just by looking at the front cover of the book, I didn't know what it was focusing on, like "grammar", "vocab", hence why I mentioned it. I'll look into it again, and get a Chinese mate's help.

I wouldn't know if I can read the Japanese instructions since I haven't looked through a mock test in Japanese before. I probably can't since my Kanji is not good and instructions in some books are sometimes meant to be exampled by a teacher and other times kept simple, but as I said, I haven't looked through a Japanese mock test book.

I'm curious as to why you would assume that people who can speak Chinese would prefer Chinese. there are people who are fairly comfortable in both languages and prefer to learn in English....ever wondered why all other subjects apart from Chinese (and the 3rd languages) are taught in English here?
It's not an assumption, it was from observation, that plenty of Chinese, prefer having instructions and communicating in their native tongue. I merely was curious as to why -you- preferred English so I asked. And, I see why since you mentioned you've had more exposure to English.

Even though, it's taught in English, some people still understand better or prefer to understand it in their own language, Chinese or not. And, not all subjects/schools use English or -just- English, as their teaching medium. Even, if there is a mixture of language it isn't fair or nice for others.

I know of this one but it's even more costly. I was hoping children books than books targeted to those learning Japanese.

Idk which children book titles are affordable and a good read.
