[Easy English Blog] In the newspaper


We were featured in the local newspaper a few days ago. We won the 2019 Language Learner Literature Award in the advanced category, and the Finalist Award in the intermediate category.

The local newspapers heard about this, and asked us if they could write a story about it. Of course we said yes! Our book which won the Finalist Award features ghost stories by a man called Lafcadio Hearn. He was a Greek/Irish writer who lived in our city in the 19th century. He wrote ghost stories. Our book Old Jack’s Ghost Stories from Japan contains six of his most famous stories.

Lafcadio Hearn introduced Japanese culture and Japanese ghost stories to the world over 100 years ago. We hope that our book helps to introduce readers today to Japanese culture and Japanese ghost stories. Here is a link to the book.
