The titles in the "Yohan Ladder Series" include classic titles from Japan and abroad, such as Lewis Carroll's Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and Kenji Miyazawa's The Night of the Milky Way Train, but also modern best-sellers and even business titles. The 40 books are published by Tokyo-based IBC Publishing, and a further eight titles will be added in August. The books are categorized into five color-coded levels, with Level 1 aimed at junior high school students with a 1,000-word vocabulary, a TOEIC score of 300 or a STEP Level of 4; Level 2 (1,300 words - TOEIC 350 - STEP Level 3); Level 3 (1,600 - TOEIC 400 - STEP Pre-Level 2); Level 4 (2,000 - TOEIC 470 - STEP Pre-Level 2); and Level 5 (TOEIC 470 - STEP Level 2) has no vocabulary limit. Each book has a vocabulary list with Japanese translations. The titles retail from ¥735 each or the full series of 40 books can be purchased for ¥33,915. Some books also have audio support available online.
