The Yakuza are teaching English to foreign student`s of English through Jason Byrne`s new graded English reader, Yakuza.
Yakuza, published by Jamaby Press, is the story of a young man who enters the Japanese Mafia. It is a story of killing, death, friendship and honour.
Jason Byrne wrote Yakuza to help foreign student`s of English improve their English knowledge, while reading an entertaining adult story. The story is authentic and speaks to the reader as an adult person, rather than as an over-sized child.
As Jason says "... Not the usual happy ever after story that English classes seem to have. This story is about young men whose job is killing and who live by a strict code of honour."
Yakuza is available from http://www.jamaby.com in book and download form. Jamaby also provides a free download listening versionof the book and the first four chapters can be read for free online. Student`s can work on their listening as well as their reading skills for the same low price.
