A reading text bank has been set up using Japanese reading support system DL. The text is for the intermediate Japanese language learner and was written by Ken Ijikebich Ujie. Each word in the text is hyper-linked to English translations. By checking on the unknown word, the learner can instantaneously access a translation of the word. As a result, the reading process is not interrupted by looking up words in a dictionary. This text bank is opened to the public through the internet, so learners can utilize it for improving their reading skills.
