Do you have the opportunity to read Japanese business books?
Reading books written in Japanese will help you improve your Japanese reading comprehension.
If it is a business book, it is useful also for business skills UP, so it is two birds with one stone.
· It is difficult to read Japanese books because it takes long time…
· It is hard to choose a useful book for me…
For these reasons you may not be able to read?
Therefore, this time I will introduce services that will solve these troubles.
That is "book summary service".
You may know getAbstract etc.
There are several similar services in Japan so I chose the following two from the point of view,
"Business books are handled a lot"
"Abstract quality is high"
"Site UI is good"
